Let’s wrap out our peanut butter chocolate week with Reeses Stuffed Rice Krispie Treat Smores. I can’t tell you how many batches of Rice Krispie Treats I make at home. They are really easy to prepare and seldom last long.
What exactly is a Rice Krispie Treat Smore? It’s two thin Rice Krispie Treats covered with marshmallow icing, graham crackers sprinkled on top, then dipped in chocolate.These have peanut butter as well! A lot of peanut butter and a little of chocolate!
The trouble is that if I want to try a new variety of Rice Krispie Treat, it doesn’t go down well with the partner.
But, ever since I created my original Rice Krispie Treat Smores, I’ve been wanting to attempt new varieties.
To create a Rice Krispie Smores, begin with a thickly packed tray of Rice Krispies with creamy peanut butter stirred in. They should be around one inch thick. Then I cut the discs using a circular cookie cutter.
You’ve got a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup placed in the midst of a pool of marshmallow icing for these goodies. It’s just great.
You have two choices for the marshmallow frosting. True marshmallow frosting may be made using whipped egg whites and corn syrup; I like this recipe from Climbing Grier Mountain. Alternatively, use Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Crme and powdered sugar to create a marshmallow frosting.
After you’ve assembled the sandwich with the Rice Krispie treat, marshmallow icing, and Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, you’ll dip it in chocolate and sprinkle graham crackers around the sides. Candy melts may be used to make the chocolate shell. I recommend using a wide-mouthed mug or measuring cup to ensure that your chocolate is deep enough to dip in. Make careful to tap off any excess chocolate!
There are a few stages involved in making these, but they are incredibly simple! Believe me, I’ve done numerous variations! When your pals bite into them, they’ll be shocked to discover a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in the centre!
Rice Krispie Treats stacked with marshmallow icing, a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, graham crackers, and chocolate dipped.
- 3 tbsp Unsalted butter
- pkg Mini Marshmallows
- C Peanut Butter
- 6 C Rice Krispie cereal
- 1 Jar Marshmallow fluff
- 3 C Powdered sugar
- 8 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
- 1/2 C Graham cracker crumbs
- 68 oz Chocolate Candy Melts
- 1 tbsp Crisco or Vegetable oil
- In a medium sauce pan, combine the butter, peanut butter, and small marshmallows to make the Rice Krispies treats. Stir constantly over medium heat until the marshmallows are melted. Pour the cereal into the sauce pan and mix thoroughly.
- Use Crisco to grease a big baking pan or cookie sheet (I used 12×17) or two smaller pans. Fill the pan halfway with the cereal and marshmallow mixture. Spread evenly with a spatula. Place a piece of wax paper on top and gently press the mixture into the pan. You want a thin layer of Rice Krispie Treats (approximately an inch thick), which is why I recommend using two pans. Allow at least 30 minutes for them to solidify.
- Combine marshmallow fluff and powered sugar to make the frosting. Mix on low speed until the powdered sugar is incorporated into the fluff. Increase the speed to medium high and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Fill a piping bag or Ziploc bag halfway with frosting. Cut the bag’s tip approximately halfway up.
- Cut your Rice Krispies treats into circles using a juice glass or cookie cutter.
- Place a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in the middle of one of your Rice Krispie discs and pipe a dab of frosting on the back. Frost the Reeses Cup with icing.
- Crush graham crackers in a Ziploc bag or ground them into crumbs in a food processor to make graham cracker cubs. Cover with a second Rice Krispie treat disc and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
- Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe basin in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds, until completely melted. To help thin down candy melts, add 1 tablespoon Crisco or vegetable oil.
- Dip Rice Krispies Sandwich into chocolate and place on wax paper for less than five minutes to enable chocolate to set.
