How do you make rice crispy treats better? By adding chocolate topping, of course. These rice crispy treats not only add the extra chocolate finish, but these rice crispy treats are held together with a sweetened peanut butter mixture, rather than marshmallows. These peanut butter and chocolate rice crispy treats are perfect for Halloween or anytime you want a wholesome snack.
