I will admit to you that I find it silly to write “3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Honey Rice Krispie Treats” as a title. Why? Because all three ingredients are listed in the title, so the title is basically the post.
There’s nothing else you will possibly need to know since obviously, to make 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Honey Rice Krispie Treats you need peanut butter, honey, and Rice Krispies. My job here is done.
Ah, but wait. You still don’t know how much of each ingredient to use to make these fine treats. I guess you still need me after all. Phew.
I had a lot of fun playing with this idea to try Rice Krispie Treats without the marshmallows. It all made sense and tasted delicious in my head, but recipes in my head and recipes in real life don’t always turn out the same.
Would they be gooey chewy like I was hoping, or would they turn out hard like bricks and crumble everywhere? Would they be sweet enough? Or maybe too sweet? Would they even stay together, or would they just fall apart and turn into peanut butter honey flavored Rice Krispie cereal?
One never knows until one tries the recipe inside one’s head while hoping for the best. How delighted was I when this recipe came out chewy gooey good on the first try! (It helped that I stirred in cereal just a little at a time until I reached my desired gooeyness level.) The peanut butter – honey – crunch combo reminds me of a childhood treat that included ingredients I no longer use. So I am perfectly thrilled with these awesome 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Honey Rice Krispie Treats and can’t wait for you to try them too! (Bet you can’t guess what the 3 ingredients are…)
