No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Cookies

Quick and simple to make, these no-bake cookies riff on traditional Rice Krispies treats, but add the deliciousness of peanut butter!

As both a child and an adult, two of my favorite snacks have always been Rice Krispies treats and peanut butter. So what could be better than marrying the two? In this simple no bake cookie recipe, these flavors blend wonderfully with sugar and vanilla to create a no-fuss cookie guaranteed to put smiles on kids of all ages.

PREP: 5 minutes
COOK: 10 minutes
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups salted peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
