Peanut Butter Captain Crunch Treats Recipe

These are a twist on the classic Rice Krispie Treats, with a double peanut buttery flavor punch. I use peanut butter cereal, and peanut butter mixed with marshmallows and butter for a rich and delicious flavor.

  • 6 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Bag Large Marshmallows
  • 1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 7 Cups Captain Crunch


  • Melt butter in a large pot, once butter is almost completely melted, add marshmallows. 
  • Stir over low heat until marshmallows are almost melted, then add peanut butter. Stir until combined.
  • Pour cereal into marshmallow mixture and stir until well combined. 
  • Pour cereal mixture into 8×8 pan, lined with parchment paper.
  • Use hands slightly dampened with water to press cereal into the pan. This will keep it from sticking to your hands. 
  • Let cool, cut with a serrated knife, and serve. 


For an even more decadent treat, try drizzling the top with melted chocolate or white chocolate chips. Heavenly!
