A different take on the classic Rice Krispies treat, always a hit with kids.


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Topping
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup corn syrup (Karo)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 (10 oz) package peanut butter chips
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups rice cereal
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 cup plain M&M's


Step 1

In a large glass bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamy mixture. Do not over mix; they should end up looking like coarse crumbs.

Step 2

Press into a greased 13x9 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 3

Immediately sprinkle with the marshmallows and bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until the marshmallows are fluffed. Cool on a wire rack.

Step 4

For the topping: Mix the corn syrup, butter and peanut butter chips in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until chips are melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla, cereal, nuts, and M&M's. Spread over the crust and cool before cutting.
