Peanut butter and chocolate infuse these crunchy treats, but a chocolate topping sets them apart. It only takes a few minutes to whip these up for an after-school surprise.


  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 cups toasted rice cereal
Store Locator »
HEAT morsels and peanut butter in small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat. Add sugar; stir vigorously until smooth.

PLACE cereal in large bowl. Add 1 cup melted chocolate mixture; stir until all cereal is coated. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Using small metal spatula, shape into 10-inch circle with slightly raised 1-inch border around the edge. Pour remaining melted chocolate mixture in center of circle; spread to 1 inch from the edge. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

So Good!

I make this over and over again. I love it. I have even made it with the chocolate rice cereal! Hubby thinks it a little "too" chocolatey for him [what planet is he from?]. I just made it over the weekend, but will make again for the big Super Bowl Sunday blow-out!

Easy fun recipe

This recipe is yummy! My husband loves Peanut Butter so I added a little extra and it was awesome!! I also found a slice to be too much so I did small "crunchy bites" in small cupcake papers! Cant wait for a school party I will be doing these Fun easy treats!

These are delicious!

Instead of making this recipe into a 10 inch circle, I dropped them from a tablespoon and made an indentation in the top as you would for a thumbprint cookie. Then I put a little chocolate in the center. They didn't last very long when I made them for a party and everyone loved them. I had to give everyone the recipe. This has become a favorite!!

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch

If you are a chocoholic and a peanut butter lover, you will love this recipe. I could not believe the taste when you realize how easy it is to make. I did make it in an oblong pan to serve smaller portions as it is very rich. It didn't last long enough to tell how it is after the first day. Maybe next time...
