These peanut butter crunch squares are chock full of crunchy peanut butter, crispy rice cereal and creamy chocolate to hold them all together!
I’ve got a twist on a nostalgic treat for you guys right here! These are inspired by the infamous crunch bars we know and love, but these have crunchy peanut butter added for a nutty twist! Growing up, I would always beg my mom for a crunch bar when we went to a store. Funny enough, having my own kids now, my oldest does the exact same thing! Except it’s more than just candy bars… “Mom, can I get a toy?” “Just one toy?” “Just a small toy?” “How about two small toys?” I can’t deal sometimes! Haha, gotta love 7 year olds!
Making these bars literally takes just minutes. You’ll melt everything in the microwave, excluding the cereal. Once all of the ingredients are melted nicely and smooth, the rice cereal gets gently folded in. That’s all, folks. Spread the mixture into a parchment lined pan and refrigerate until set and you’re good to go! My favorite way to eat and serve these is straight out of the fridge but you can also have them room temperature.
