These Lazy Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls have made it to my "go to" easy snack recipes file. They really are easy to make, with ingredients that I always have on hand. I used an ice cream scoop, and cooled them on was paper. I also took a suggestion from AZ Mary, and used crunchy peanut butter, and drizzled them with melted dark chocolate. My little niece absolutely loves them.

These look so easy and yummy. I love Rice Krispy Treats and the thought of peanut butter and peanuts in there sounds like a dream. Actually, the crunchy peanut butter sounds better to me. I wonder how the chocolate Rice Krispy's would be in there as well? So many variations could be done with this super recipe. I'm looking forward to trying it.

When I was a kid, the school served these with lunch. I always really liked them, but never knew how to make them and I had never seen them mentioned anywhere. You could always use the crunchy peanut butter and not add the peanuts. Just make mounds on waxed paper like you do when you make unbaked cookies.

I think my kids would love to make these treats this weekend. We are planning a movie night and want something sweet to go with our buttery and salty popcorn. I agree with MsDeb21 that this recipe looks addicting! I could see this becoming a family favorite that we could make every weekend.

I can't wait to make these. I like Rice Krispie treats, but I'm not that big of a marshmallow fan. However, I love peanut butter and salted peanuts. This looks like a snack that will be addicting!

These are really cute and I bet kids would love to make them! Rice krispie treats are delicious but can be so messy that's why I really like the use of the cupcake liners. I also really love the idea of making these treats with crunchy peanut butter rather than smooth for some added texture!

What a great variation to the recipe I know using coconut. I am definitely going to use this recipe next time the grand children come to visit.

I just made these the other day and they came out fantastic! Peanutbutter balls are my all-time favorite snack to make, since they can be made quickly, with few ingredients, and are super simple. You can't go wrong with these! I also adore the addition of the honey just enough added sweetness, especially since I rarely add chocolate bits or peanuts.

I used crunchy peanut butter and a couple of shakes of cinnamon then drizzled with melted dark chocolate. Yummy! I used the small cupcake liners sprayed with non stick cooking spray

Where is the Instructions for using the cupcake liners. Do you spray then with non-stick, do use reg. size or small size, do let them cool before you put them in the liners?


How on earth do you grease cupcake liners?

use non-stick spray (Pam)

Hi 72cuda 6268059 - Unfortunately we don't have info for the number of treats this recipe yields. Since most of our recipes are user-submitted, we only have data that is provided to us. I would guess that this recipe would make a dozen or so treats. -Editors of RecipeLion

when using the cupcake method, how many approx does this yield?
