Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats

Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats

Are you superstitious?  Some people have all kinds of superstitions.  They eat certain foods at certain time.  They have lucky pieces of clothing for important days.  They play particular songs to get motivated for big events.  There are many more examples.  Sometimes we have cultural superstitions or those passed on to us by friends or family.  And sometimes we create our own based simply on our experiences.  Regardless, I find them fascinating and have a few of my own.

I do the whole knocking on wood thing when I say something that may tempt fate.  As I become more and more of a worrier, it’s only a matter of time before I take it a step further and go outside, turn around three times and spit, as some people do.  I also make wishes on stars and wishbones, but you’ll never know what they are or they won’t come true.

I wear certain necklaces when I feel I need a bit of protection, particularly my evil eye, and I always wear a ring Mom gave me that was given to her by her mom when she was younger.  I’m sure I have many more I can’t think of at the moment or perhaps am not even fully aware of.

My newest superstition is bringing a sweet treat to the dermatologist every time I visit.  It began as something nice to do for people I like.  They appreciated it so much that I did it again.  And then it kinda stuck in my mind that when I brought something to an appointment, it went well, so it was only reasonable to assume if I didn’t bring something things might not go well.  This is seriously how my brain works things out, rationalizes things.  And so now an appointment at the dermatologist means a trip to the kitchen.  I’ve brought Carmelitas, Iced Hermits, Biscoff Fudge, Puppy Chow, and probably a few other things.  Clearly I visit the dermatologist way too much!

I have to admit, I wasn’t feeling like baking and had no ideas what to make.  I thought Rice Krispies Treats sounded good and would be super easy to make, but I couldn’t make just any Rice Krispies Treats, so I made Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats.  You probably know by now that I’m obsessed with peanut butter and marshmallow together, so I put it to practice again here.  Tons of marshmallows and peanut butter make these an ooey, gooey, super sticky treat with incredible flavor that’s no bake.  They are good at room temperature, but fifteen seconds in the microwave makes these out of this world amazing.  Oh yeah, these are definitely enough to keep the bad mojo away!

Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats

Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 minute

Total Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 18 treats

Ingredients

6 cups mini marshmallows, divided

1 heaping cup creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural)

4 cups Rice Krispies

½ cup peanut butter chips

Instructions

Line a 9 by 13 inch pan with parchment, leaving overhang to pull the treats out later.

In a large microwave safe bowl, place 4 cups of the marshmallows along with the peanut butter. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the mixture is completely melted and fully combined.

Stir in the Rice Krispies, remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and peanut butter chips. Stir until all the ingredients are fully coated and evenly distributed. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth into an even layer and press down on the mixture slightly with your hands. Allow to cool to room temperature before cutting into pieces. May be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.

  1. ahahhaaa your doctors must LOOOVE you! I think we all have some superstitions, for sure :)

    And yum yum yum pb & marshmallows are always good and I looove rice krispie treats!

  2. I’m kinda superstitious, or maybe it’s just OCD, I don’t know. I always knock on the airplane before getting in though. I figure if it can’t handle me knocking on it, I don’t want to fly in it. :P

    Also, you are the best patient a doctor can have!

    • Laura says:

      OCD and superstitions are kind of hard to tell apart sometimes. For sure don’t want to fly on planes that can’t handle a little knocking.

  3. If I were to make these I would probably eat them straight out of the pan…with my hand… accidentally. YUM! :P
    Interesting superstitions, your doctors are so lucky!

  4. Dad says:

    For something so simple they are very good. Surprisingly light and a great flavor.

  5. Natalie says:

    Droooool….I would eat the whole pan up, awesome recipe!

  6. sara says:

    Yum! I love rice krispies and the flavors here sound AMAZING. Love it!

  7. My daughter loves rice krispie treats. I never grew up with them and confess to never having made them. However, I will happily pass this recipe on to her!

    • Laura says:

      Rice Krispies Treats are so yummy! The next time you want dessert but don’t want to do all the work, whip up a batch and I bet you’ll love them :)

  8. Fluffernutter reminds me of college! I had a friend across the hall who used to sit and eat fluff and nutter with a spoon on the floor. We would all swing by when we needed a sugar boost. ha ha! Great combo for rice krispy treats!

  9. Ooh yes, I still make wishes on stars, and whenever I see a digital clock hit 11.11. And whenever I go into an exam, I have to have my lucky pen with me (it’s purple, and I don’t actually write with it cause generally you can’t write in purple ink. But I just bring it in with me anyway and leave it on the desk. I think I’ll stop now before I sound too crazy!).

    Rice krispies are always a sweet treat anytime :) Adding peanut butter sounds delicious.

    • Laura says:

      It would be so much better if tests could be taken with purple pen, wouldn’t it? I think I’d do better just with the pretty, relaxing color :) Thanks, Li!

  10. But how do you control yourself to just one?! These look addicting…. mmm

  11. Your doctors must love you! These look so chewy and awesome.

  12. Jessica says:

    I didn’t realize that I was superstitious until you began listing some of yours. Knocking on wood? Check. Stars and wishbones? Check. Some are crazy silly though – I have a pretty big fear of chain letters. Seriously, who has 30 email addresses at a moments notice to forward a chain letter to in order to 1. win money 2. be lucky in love 3. not have some horrible, awful thing happen…and so on and so forth? Too much stress for me, too much pressure. Who knows what would happen if I actually did forward them? Where would I be now? Luckier perhaps?
    Ok, as for the recipe these sound delicious. Your Fluffernutter is just awesome and I know that it must be just great in this recipe. Great job and great post :)

    • Laura says:

      Chain letters drive me nuts too, Jessica! I’m always afraid of them, but I convince myself they’re stupid and just delete them. maybe we’d both be luckier had we not ;) Thanks for your nice comment!

  13. Yummy! I haven’t had krispie treats in a while but I’d love to try them with peanut butter. Yum!

  14. Debbie Eccard says:

    OMG! Scott would love these as Rice Krispies treats are one of his favorites!

  15. Linda says:

    Hi Laura iv just come acrooss this site and have enjoyed reading it.
    This recipe sounds yummy but i dont like marshmallows , would it be ok without them or would yo add something else.
    Its the nuts that appeal to me.
    Thanks, Linda

    • Laura says:

      I’m so glad you found my site, Linda :) If you don’t like marshmallows, this is not the recipe for you. The basis of this recipe is marshmallows. For a similar recipe with lots of peanut butter try the Good Morning Sunshine Bars. They are actually one of my favorite treats!
