Peanut Butter Snickers Rice Krispie Treats

I’m gonna get down and dirty and get straight to the point. I’m a snacker! These Peanut Butter Snickers Rice Krispie Treats are snacking at its finest.

I like to snack throughout the day. I nibble when I’m at the computer at work, in-between patients, during class, and, yes, when I’m bored. Now, I’m not proud of it, but I do occasionally frequently snack when I’m bored. I try to snack on healthy things, like these Peanut Butter Oat Balls or this Very Vanilla Almond Granola sprinkled over Greek yogurt.

I really do try to snack healthy, but some days require Chocolate Espresso Toasted Hazelnut Cookies (which are amaze balls good) or these Cookie Butter Cinnamon Chip Oat Balls (talk about addictive). You know the days… Their the days you stub your newly pedicured toe on a rock and it swells to twice the size and you can’t get it to stop bleeding and you’re forced to wear flip flops in 40 degree weather because you were too busy talking instead of paying attention to where you were going. Yeah, those days. They require more than just a healthy snack. They require a big ol’ fat cookie that says “You’re going to make it through the day.”

I made Peanut Butter Snickers Rice Krispie Treats to add to the list of feel-better snacks, and they’re doing a mighty fine job coaxing my left middle toe back to health (yup, I was that dummy who ran right into a rock).

Crispy rice cereal gets coated with a generous drizzle of gooey peanut butter marshmallow sauce. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t what will.

I tossed in a heaping handful of chopped snickers bars, chopped peanuts, and mini marshmallows. It took every ounce of will power not to devour the pan before photographing it.

I just took snacking to the next level and, technically, since these bars are made with rice cereal, they can be considered breakfast. Technically.

Well, hello sexy rice crispy treat, with your mini marshmallow studs and chopped snickers bar pieces. I don’t mind if I do.

    Hello, I’m Kim, and I’m a snacker, too. (I type while munching on honey wheat pretzels)

    These have rice cereal and peanut butter and nuts and dairy. Forget breakfast, they’re practically health food. So it’s totally okay if I eat the entire pan.

    My mind went blank after the words gooey peanut butter and marshmallow sauce. I have no idea what the rest of the post is about. You could have been discussing frog parts for all I know. My brain just knows that it wants gooey peanut butter and marshmallow sauce!

    we are all in SUCH SNACKY MOODS recently! it’s a good indicator of fall, like apples and pot roast. snacks are SO BIG right now, and i love these. i mean, peanut butter? with snickers? i am so there right now. i want to make these, but first i have to devise a strategy for not accidentally eating the snickers bars i’m supposed to be chopping up. this will be difficult.
    i see you still haven’t gotten over the salted hazelnut chocolate chips cookies. :) thanks for the shout-out! i still dream about them, i think.
