I have no problem with traditional rice crispy treats, but I seldom say to myself “Oooh I just gotta have one”. They are okay, don’t get me wrong, and they are even better warm just after they have been made. But sometimes, biting into one of those puppies feels like chewing on styrofoam.
HOWEVER, these are different. Chances are pretty good you had these growing up. If you haven’t, prepare to get ruined for all other rice crispy treats. Little bits of crisp cereal enveloped and surrounded by a flavorful peanut butter fudgey coating.
- 4 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 cup honey (or light corn syrup)
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar (light or dark)
- 1+1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
