If you like this recipe for, Reese’s Krispies make sure you check out the MilkyWay Krispies, and Reese’s Crumble! This post is a repost from last year, but seeing as how this recipe, no matter what I do this recipe remains number one, I thought it would be a good idea to bring it back to life. I’ve left the original post on here, but I did add updates to the recipe as we make it a little different these days.
Who has left over Halloween candy?! I know I do. I was trying to think up a delicious way to enjoy all of that candy other than just eating piece by piece and I came up with these. Oh! I think I forgot to even tell you about Halloween! Ok, first of all, our sweet Claire had just healed from Croup. And a bad version of it. She’s only 16 lbs so to be hit with an extremely bad strain of croup was a big deal. By Halloween it was just a bad cold, so all of the scary not breathing, or troubled breathing had thankfully ended. Two steroids is what it took and I pray it doesn’t ever happen again. Croup is quite honestly one of the worst things ever. Anyway, last year I had wanted to dress our oldest up as Rainbow Brite, but I am sooooo glad I waited until this year. Aren’t they darling?!
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Corn Syrup
- 1⅓ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 4¼ Cup Rice Krispies
- 1 Pinch of Salt
- 4 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped (we use 6)
- 1 Handful Chocolate Chips (we use ½ cup)
- In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt the sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter until smooth and evenly combined.
- Remove from heat.
- Quickly add the salt and cereal and stir to combine thoroughly. Add the chocolate chips and stir again. Wait about 1 min and add the candy, quickly folding the mixture together so as to not smash up the candy.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop rounded tablespoons onto the sheet. Let cool and devour!

We found this killer version of rice krispies! Doesn’t that slab of chocolate on top look like something you want to sink your teeth into?
We figured that if the original was so good a double chocolate version would be amazing, and it was!
Milky Way candybars were my favorite as a kid so why not combine them with a fresh take on our famous reese’s krispies?
