White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies

I had this candy a few years ago at a Christmas party and went home and immediately tried to replicate it. This candy is a real crowd pleaser. It is creamy and crunchy without being overly rich. I could eat a ton of these little things. This is very easy to put together and it makes a ton. Make a batch and share with your friends!




White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies
(Printable Recipe)


2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
2 cups dry roasted peanuts
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter
2 pounds white chocolate chips (2 12-oz packages plus 1 1/3 cup)

In a large bowl, combine cereal, peanuts and marshmallows. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and peanut butter on High for 1 minute and then in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Stir chocolate into cereal mixture. Mixture will be slightly runny. Drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper. Let set until firm, 2 hours. Store in an airtight container.

  4. Your father brought some of your treats to my job last week (Thanks Steve! The girls at the Shoe Station loved everything!) These little gems were gone before we all left at 5:00 that afternoon. I'm so glad that you posted the receipe. Now we can make these for our Christmas party, unless of course, your dad would like to send us some!

  6. Stephanie, I make something very similar to this but it has the Captain Crunch PB ceral in it and doesn't call for peanut butter and I can only imagine that would make it even better! My question, for my recipe I used the white almond bark, it just always melts better and smoother than the chips for me. Do you know what the equivlent would be? My recipe calls for a pound or one package, would it be the same? Thanks! I might also try this with regular milk chocolate almond bark as I already have some of that at home begging to be used and you can never go wrong with chocolate and PB!

  7. Shelly - OMG Captain Crunch in this would be AMAZING. I am going to buy a box at the grocery store today. I am going to make some ASAP!

    I think one package of almond bark would be enough. It does melt alot better than white chocolate. I use almond bark on popcorn mixes and one package covers two bags of microwave popcorn and add-ins.

    You are killing me with the chocolate version too!

  8. Thanks so much for this recipe! It's a nice change from the regular Christmas faire! I took a little liberties! ;-) I melted 3 bags of white chocolate, 1 cup of peanut butter.... used the same amounts of rice krispies and marshmallows. Didn't have roasted peanuts so I added walnuts and milk chocolate chips! I put them in mini muffin liners and they look so cute in the tins for Christmas! Thanks again for a great recipe!

  9. I made these for my Christmas work treats. They just melt in your mouth and are so creamy. I like the salty/sweet combination. This recipe will definitely be a keeper for me. Thank you for sharing this recipe and all of your others.

  11. Made these many times growing up for the holidays using regular captain crunch and rice krispie combo. The colored marshmallows are good in them too! I just started making them again the last couple years and will never stop! They are too good and I always get loads of compliments!

  12. We made these at Christms and they were an absolute hit. My husband called them "cat puke" cookies because of what they look like... hehehe (we have cats) but no lie, these are the best cookies ever. I'm making them again for Easter :) They are AWESOME!!!

  13. I do the captain crunch ones too but with regular captain crunch.
    1/2 pkg white almond bark, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 cup salted peanuts, 2-3 cups captain crunch, 1 cup marshmallows.
    I can't wait to try the Rice Krispie one though!

  14. Not sure if I like the candy the best or the cute red and white kitty in the background!

  17. Can I use candy melts for this or does it have to be white chocolate chips? They look delectable!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Janira - you can use candy melts or vanilla almond bark. It will taste fine. Enjoy!

  19. Hi there. Can you suggest something to use instead of marshmellows? My daughter doesn't like them. Iwould love tomake this for Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nancy - I'm not a marshmallow fan either, but they taste good in this recipe. If you want to leave them out, you can just increase the other ingredients a little bit.

  21. Hi! These look awesome. About how many does this recipe yield? Thanks!

  22. Does anyone know about how many tablespoon sized clusters this recipe makes? I can't decide if I want to double the recipe or not.

  24. These look awesome! Just wondering if you can freeze them?

    ReplyDelete
  25. cl- I don't think they would freeze well with the candy coating. You can try it.

  26. I just wanted to say that this would totally be gluten free if you stuck with the krispies! So hard to find something yummy and gluten free cookie wise. No substitutes needed. Sensitivities vary, but as long as none of the ingredients are processed along side grains, this should be safe for GFers.

  27. These are pretty amazing, delish but rich. Fortunately for me I could only eat one! Mine are keeping nicely in a sealed container, on an unheated Central NY porch. My husband hates marshmallows and didn't even notice they were in there. My blobs yielded about 72 cookies, using not an overflowing silverware tablespoon. :0)

  28. These do look fabulous but I just wanted to put it out there that if you are looking for a gluten free version don't use regular Rice Krispies as they have barley malt.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  32. Is there a way to make them without the peanuts and peanut butter- we have allergies and don't use either in recipes!

    1. You can just melt the white chocolate and mix in the cerea and marshmallows.

  33. I can't wait to try these with gluten free rice krispies. I think I'm going to leave out the marshmallows. My mom used to make something like this but with white chocolate, peanut butter captain crunch, and peanuts. They are amazingly delicious!

  34. I make the exact same thing every year for Christmas but they are called Inhalers. Can you guess why??? lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. How much does this make? Trying to decide if it's enough for 6 dozen or if I should double the recipe. Thx!

    1. It just depends on how big you make the bites. I think you would need to double this recipe to accommodate that many people.
