Bakers, have you ever made something and thought, “Who am I? What is this?”
Just me then, making this recipe.
Budget-friendly bloggers and celebrity chefs are always eschewing the benefits of cooking with whatever you have around you. Don’t run to the store for fancy ingredients. Raid your pantry. Keep it simple.
I’ve always been a fan of throwing a little fancy around, but this time, I hit up my cupboards for inspiration and landed on the Peanut Butter Snow Globe.
I had Rice Krispies. I had marshmallows. I had white chocolate. I had peanut butter cups. And, I literally can’t live without a big ol’ jar of peanut butter.
Picture a Rice Krispie square, swirled with peanut butter, glued to a Reese’s Cup with white chocolate and then doused in white chocolate because there wasn’t already enough going on.
You actually don’t need to picture it. Because I have a picture of it, right here:
I had so little faith in these treats working out, I barely took any mid-recipe photos. I only have the finished product.
And you know what? For all of my doubt, this recipe turned out.
It’s funny and silly and pretty damn tasty.
Really, you can’t go wrong with marshmallows, peanut butter and chocolate. Especially when it’s Christmas themed and holds itself up with a stand that’s also a peanut butter cup.
Peanut butter snow globes
- 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 10 Reese’s cups
- 1 cup of white chocolate
- Sprinkles or coloured sugar
- In a large pot, melt your marshmallows and butter together. Add peanut butter and stir until melted.
- Stir in Rice Krispies and remove from heat. Allow the mixture to cool down enough to handle and form into balls. Melt white chocolate and spoon a dime-sized amount onto each unwrapped Reese’s cup. Top with Rice Krispies ball. Spoon over more melted white chocolate and sprinkle with the decoration of your choice.
- Cool in the fridge for an hour and store on your countertop until ready to eat. I don’t recommend eating them right from the fridge as they harden when cold. If they are too big to handle, try slicing into quarters!
