Triple Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats Bon Bons Drenched In Chocolate


Triple Peanut Butter! Umm, yes!

These little yummies were created out of desperation.

My hubby's sweet Mom has been sick and nothing was tasting good. So I was going to surprise her with her favorite candy, the "back of the box" Peanut Butter Bon Bons. But as I set about making them I realized I was out of graham crackers! Oops!

I did however have marshmallows and I've been making a lot of rice krispies treats lately. Let me just add some peanut butter, and candy chips, and then I'll roll them into balls, and then I'll dip them in chocolate! Yeah, that sounds good I thought! 

She ate five as soon as she opened them. I shared the rest and they were a hit! Yay!

After a trip to the store to restock, I said, let's make these a triple threat and drizzle them with even more peanut butter goodness. Yep! These are a keeper.
Just look at this ooey gooey cross section! Oh yeah!
Ingredients I used. (Not pictured:Coconut oil)
Prepare a parchment lined pan and a large bowl by spraying lightly with nonstick spray.
 Melt 5 tablespoons butter in large pot or dutch oven over low heat.
 Add 9 cups mini-marshmallows (you can approximate 1 1/2 bags), stirring occasionally to melt.
Meanwhile, melt 1 cup peanut butter in microwave in 30 second bursts till melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
To the melted marshmallows, add peanut butter mixture.
Stir until combined.
 Stir in 6 1/2 cups Rice Krispies until fully incorporated. 
 Does this not look scrumptious!!!
Now it's time to add the additional 3 cups marshmallows and 1 cup peanut butter chips. Stir until combined.
Pour into prepared large bowl.
Now let's roll! I used food-safe gloves to roll my treats and had no sticking issues, but if you do just use a little nonstick spray on your hands. 
Melt 2 10 ounce bags Ghirardelli chocolate and drench these babies in it!
Place on parchment paper to set.
 Melt 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips in microwave in 30 second bursts until melted. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Drizzle onto bon bons. Let set.
Now this is a thing of total beauty!๐Ÿ˜‹

Triple Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats Bon Bons Recipe

6 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
2 10 oz. bags mini-marshmallows (divided)
5 Tablespoons butter
1 cup peanut butter
2 1/2 cups peanut butter chips (divided)
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 10 oz. bags Ghirardelli chocolate melting wafers
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil

In a large pot or dutch oven, add 5 Tablespoons butter. Melt over low heat. Add 9 cups (or you can just "eyeball" 1 1/2 bags) marshmallows, stirring frequently until melted. Meanwhile, melt 1 cup peanut butter in 30 second bursts in microwave. Stir in vanilla. Add this mixture to melted marshmallows stirring to combine. To this, mix in 6 1/2 cups Rice Krispies until fully incorporated. Now it's time to add the remaining 3 cups (or half bag) of marshmallows and 1 cup peanut butter chips, stirring to combine.

Transfer to prepared bowl and begin rolling your treats. You can spray your hands with nonstick spray or if you have food safe gloves as I do, I had no issues with stickiness. Place treats on prepared parchment lined pan.

Melt 2 bags or 20 ounces of Ghirardelli chocolate wafers and dip candies. Let set. Melt 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips in 30 second bursts in microwave until melted and smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil until melted. Drizzle onto bon bons. Let set.
