Peanut butter potato chip rice krispie treats are sweet, salty, and oh-so-good! The nutty flavor is just perfect paired with salty chips.
Lately I’ve been treating potato chips the way I treat bacon — I’m adding them to desserts and baked goods like crazy!! Especially treats that include peanut butter — it’s just such a special pairing.
The combo of potato chips and peanut butter in these Peanut Butter Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats is unmatched!! You’ve just got to try them for yourself, and you’re only about 15 minutes away from experiencing them firsthand. They’re super quick and easy to make!
I’ve long loved bacon for a salty, crunchy contrast to sweet things, and I’ll throw crumbled, fried bacon into brownies, cookies, sweet rolls, and even scones. Now I’m on a potato chip kick though. I want salty, crunchy potato chips in all my fave desserts lately! It’s a bit less work than frying up bacon, and you get a similar effect. Note: I said similar! Bacon definitely still has its advantages!!
In addition to being on a potato chip bender, I’ve also been on a Rice Krispie Treats bender for the last year or so. I just can’t stop making them. I’ve always liked them a lot — I mean, who doesn’t like Rice Krispie Treats? – but for about the last year, I continue to feel inspired to make variation after variation of Rice Krispie Treats.
The ideas just keep coming to me. I’ve made Nutella Rice Krispie Treats, Biscoff, Red Velvet, Gingerbread, Pumpkin Spice Latte, and White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan… so far. Believe it or not, among all of those though, I don’t have a recipe for peanut butter Rice Krispie Treats! It was high time.
Given my recent fixation of adding potato chips to desserts (see these Potato Chip White Chocolate Buckeyes!), I had to add potato chip crumbs to this recipe. These Peanut Butter Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats are everything you love about classic Rice Krispie Treats — sweet, gooey, and crispy, but these are upgraded with smooth, nutty, rich peanut butter, and salty, crunchy potato chips crumbs.
You’ll love this epic Rice Krispie Treats recipe!
