I’ve never really liked plain rice cereal treats. Often they are too sticky to handle and they can taste a little bland. I’ve seen some recipes that add various items like candy and chocolate to them, so I decided to try to make my own variation by adding peanut butter. These Peanut Butter Rice Cereal Treats are so easy to make and take very little time.
This is an updated post that I shared a few years ago. I’ve been making them frequently since then, and I’ve altered the recipe a bit. These little snacks are packed with flavor and unlike some treats like these, they are not super sticky. It only takes a few minutes to make these and they hold together well after a few minutes in the refrigerator.
To make these, you’ll need rice cereal, add mini marshmallows, peanut butter, and melted vanilla candy melts.
Peanut Butter Crispies for Christmas
A quick and easy peanut butter Christmas treat.
- 2 Cups Crispy Rice Cereal

- Christmas Sprinkles
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or pan liners.
Add cereal and marshmallows to a large mixing bowl.
Melt candy melts in the microwave per instructions on packaging.
Add peanut butter to melted candy and stir until combined.
Add mixture to cereal and marshmallows and stir until it's all mixed together.
Using a teaspoon, scoop out small portions and place on parchment paper.
Add Christmas sprinkles to each piece.
Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes.
