Rice Krispie Treats Without Marshmallows

These bars are for those who like the Rice Krispie treats but want a little extra nutrition. The corn syrup and peanut butter hold them together in a sweet, nutty glaze.


  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ cups peanut butter
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies
  1. Spray 13" × 9" pan with cooking spray; set aside.

  2. Bring corn syrup and sugars to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in peanut butter.

  3. Add cereal; stir until completely coated.

  4. Remove from heat; spoon into prepared pan, pressing down firmly.

  5. Allow to cool 1 hour. Cut into bars.

Corn Syrup Substitute

If you prefer not to use corn syrup in your cooking, you can easily make a sugar syrup to substitute. To substitute for light corn syrup, mix 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add ½ teaspoon of vanilla if you wish. To make a substitute for dark corn syrup, use brown sugar rather than white sugar.
