Elvis Fluffernutter Rice Krispie Treats

Ohio State may not be playing a game this weekend, but here in Memphis I am still celebrating yet another PB+Choc Saturday in addition to continuing the celebration of Peanut Butter Lovers Month! Here in Memphis, everyone knows that Elvis’s favorite sandwich was peanut butter and banana. Today I am using PB Crave’s CoCo Bananas Peanut Butter to transform that sandwich into a rice krispie treat. The original recipe used banana chips as well, but I decided the banana flavor in the peanut butter was a adequate substitution. Although I will admit, I had planned on topping them off with banana chips but they mysteriously disappeared into the abyss that is my pantry (which means I probably used them and forgot). Regardless, you won’t want to miss out on these over-the-top krispie treats! One of my labmate’s eyes bulged out upon her first bite. Yea they’re good.

Elvis Fluffernutter Rice Krispie Treats

Two years ago: Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars


Makes 16 bars


1/2 cup unsalted butter

10 oz. mini marshmallows

1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)

1/2 cup PB Crave Coo Bananas peanut butter

5 cups puffed rice cereal

9 full size peanut butter cups (I used Reeseā€™s pumpkins)

1 cup mini marshmallows

10 oz. bag peanut butter chips


  1. Lightly coat an 8-inch square making dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and vanilla bean paste and turn heat to low. Stir until completely smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and quickly stir in peanut butter. Add cereal and mix until fully incorporated. Evenly distribute as best you can.
  4. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Get your hands a little wet with water (to prevent sticking) and press them down into the baking dish.
  5. Top with the peanut butter cups (spaced 3 in a row) and top with marshmallows.
  6. Melt the peanut butter chips in either a microwave or on stove top with a double boiler. Pour melted peanut butter chips over the marshmallows and peanut butter cups and spread as evenly as possible.
  7. Allow to set, about one hour. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.
