Our family loves Chex cereal! Most of them are certified gluten free, which makes this mom happy. We seem to always have a box in our pantry. Rice Chex, Corn Chex, or my husband’s favorite…Cinnamon Chex! Last summer, I discovered that I could use chex to make marshmallow treats. They have more crunch than the traditional rice crispy treats. Now I’m wondering why I never thought to add peanut
butter to them? I’m a big fan of any dessert
that involves peanut butter. It’s just so. so. good.
Gooey, chewy goodness. That’s what these peanut butter chex treats are all about! This a great go-to dessert because it takes minutes to put together…and there is no baking! I despise turning on my oven in the hot summer months and heating up my whole kitchen. These are a perfect treat to bring to those summer barbecues or pot-lucks. Your friends will thank you. When I made these, I might have kept the knife in the pan and cut myself piece after piece throughout the day. Don’t judge. You make a batch and try to eat just one!
