I admit it. For as little as I know about football, I know even less about basketball. I know that people are playing the game right now, and that it’s some sort of March Madness. I’m guessing it’s similar to the playoffs for football and getting close to basketball’s version of the Super Bowl. I don’t think they get nearly the commercials though, as I’ve never watched a basketball game for the commercials. Heck, I’ve never watched a basketball game.

One thing I do know, though, is how to feed a room full of hungry fans. I might not understand what’s going on on the TV and all the shouting, but food? I’ve got that covered.

These bad boys came to mind while I was fixing up my Kim’s recipe index and saw that she had a category just for krispy treats. With some long-neglected (as in about to expire) boxes of cereal calling my name, and a quick trip to the market for the marshmallows, it was on.

These treats were meant to be shared post-mountain bike ride where we all gather, hang out, and gorge ourselves on snacks. Sadly, it rained. But I can promise they will still be a hit with your fans at home or on the court.

45 minutes
Serves: 8


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows
  • 4-5 cups peanut butter cereal
  • 4 oz peanut butter candy
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter - plus 2-3 tbs peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 - 3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp cream


  • Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the butter and swirl about the pan until melted. 
  • Add the marshmallows and stir with a wooden spoon until melted. 
  • Remove from heat. 
  • One cup at a time, stir in the cereal. (You may need to transfer this part of the recipe to a large bowl if your skillet is not large enough). 
  • Stir in the peanut butter candy.
  • Spray the back of a large metal spoon with non stick cooking spray and use it to press the marshmallow mixture into an even layer in the prepared pan. Set aside.
  • Bring the cream to just a simmer over medium heat - bubbles will be appearing at the edges.
  • Remove from heat, add the peanut butter and chocolate.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes. 
  • Stir until completely smooth. 
  • Let sit for 15 minutes before pouring over marshmallow treats. 
  • Place in fridge for 15 minutes minimum to set.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and cream until smooth. If needed add more or less sugar or cream. 
  • Using a pastry bag or a resealable bag with a hole cut in the corner, pipe the peanut butter onto the glaze layer into zig zags or whatever your heart desires.
  • Slice into portions and devour.

  1. You did an awesome job (as always) with Kim’s site. And with these treats. I don’t follow college basketball either, though I do know what it is since Hubby’s a big fan and yes, we’re into March madness. As long as I keep him in beer and chips of some sort, he’s happy down in his man cave. Maybe I’ll throw a batch of these down there sometime.

  2. Damn woman you hit a home run with these. That’s football right?

    I love that you made these. I’ve been lacking krispies lately so I need to get my cereal on. I love the peanut butter you did on top. Squee. Gotta try these.

    1. I’m really glad that Kim spends more time in the kitchen that she does at sporting events.

  3. I know way more about college football than backetball, but I love making a bracket for March Madness to see how it all pans out.

  4. Mmm, peanut butter cereal and peanut butter pieces, love it. I would totally eat the entire pan.

  5. These look absolutely perfect. I would love to frame these and put it up on my kitchen wall, but only after baking two batches. One for me and one for everyone else. Basketball is my least favorite sport but one thing that seems to tie all the sports together is bad calls from the ref’s (or ump’s) and loud yelling at the tv should the other team have the audacity to score! 🙂 Kind of like how I yell while watching Chopped.

  6. My son adores krispie treats! He’s 16, and lactose intolerant (he’d be mortified that I wrote that), but we make ours dairy free, and yes, with lots of PB. LOVE this version, and since he couldn’t have the dairy that would mean more for the rest of us!
