Chocolate Covered Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats


The greatest part about these Rice Krispie treats? No oven required! In fact, you don’t even need the stovetop. Everything, including the shiny chocolate glaze, is made in the microwave. If, however, you do not own a microwave or prefer to use the stovetop, we have provided the method below in the recipe Notes section.Yield: 24  Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes  Total time: 20 minutes

You Will Need
  • 4 tablespoons (57 grams) butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 10-ounce bag (283 grams) mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups (180 grams) toasted rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
  • 2 cups (60 grams) crispy corn puff cereal (Kix)
  • Six 1.5-ounce packages Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (12 peanut butter cups)
  • One 10 oz bag (283 grams) bittersweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 8 tablespoons (113 grams) butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts, chopped
Directions
  1. Generously spray a 13-inch by 9-inch baking dish. (You could also line with parchment paper).
  1. Cut each peanut butter cup into six pieces. In a bowl that is large enough to fit all of the cereal, combine cereals and the chopped peanut butter cups.
  1. Add butter and marshmallows to a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Use a spoon and stir the marshmallows (while they may not look melted, once you stir them they begin to turn molten). If some marshmallows are still solid, place the bowl back into the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir until smooth. (If after 10 seconds they still have not all melted, repeat, in 10 second intervals, until they are – just remember to stir each time).
  1. Pour melted marshmallow over cereal and gently stir until well coated.
  1. Transfer mixture to baking dish and press into one even layer. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and let sit, at room temperature for 30 minutes or until cooled and set.
  1. Once set, the chocolate glaze can be added to the top. To make glaze, add chocolate, and the butter to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Use a spoon to stir then microwave for 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval until chocolate, and the butter have melted into a glaze. (In our microwave, this took the initial 30 seconds then four intervals of 20 seconds).
  1. Add honey then vigorously stir the glaze until shiny, and then pour over cooled Rice Krispy treats. Now, use an off-set spatula or knife to spread the glaze into one even layer. Immediately top with chopped peanuts then let sit another 20 to 30 minutes until the glaze has set completely. Cut into 4 rows by 6 rows.
