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


  1. Melt butter in a large pot, once butter is almost completely melted, add marshmallows. 

  2. Stir over low heat until marshmallows are almost melted, then add peanut butter. Stir until combined.

  3. Pour cereal into marshmallow mixture and stir until well combined. 

  4. Pour cereal mixture into 8×8 pan, lined with parchment paper.

  5. Use hands slightly dampened with water to press cereal into the pan. This will keep it from sticking to your hands. 

  6. Let cool, cut with a serrated knife, and serve. 

Recipe Notes

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