That’s it, 4 ingredients. It is equal parts of karo, peanut butter, and sugar. If I am making these for a large group, I will use 2 cups each. If I am making these for 12 or less, I use 1 cup of each.
Pour in 1 cup karo,
1 cup sugar,
and 1 cup of creamy peanut butter.
Heat on medium heat while stirring continuously. This will burn easily if it is too hot.
When it has melted completely, it will be smooth. Remove from burner.
Stir in 4 cups of rice krispies.
Pour into a 8 x 8 dish. Let cool. If you are making a double batch, use a larger dish.
That’s it! It is so much easier and cheaper to throw this together than to run to the grocery store for cookies or cupcakes when you are in a bind and need something fast.
