Elvis rice krispie treats
I’ve decided to call these Elvis Rice Krispie Treats because of Elvis’ love for fried peanut butter/banana sandwiches. For those who don’t know, the anniversary of Elvis’ death is Aug. 16 so this recipe is coming at just the right time.
I think this dessert is great for after school treats, potlucks, or just weekend yumminess. I also have a friend who might make them for a friend’s birthday in lieu of a cake. The friend of the friend, by the way, loves the King so it’s very fitting!
So, after all that long discussion, here is the recipe.
What you need:
A greased (or cooking sprayed) 9×11 Pyrex dish (I’m sure you can use any kind of container, just not something that melts)
Mixing spoon (not plastic that will melt…trust me!)
1 cup Karo (light corn syrup)
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter (I think creamy is easier and is less drying)
3 tablespoons of dry banana pudding/pie filling mix
6 cups of rice cereal
Melt the sugar and corn syrup together, stirring just about constantly.
Bring the sugar/corn syrup mix to a boil then remove from heat.
Mix in the peanut butter until it’s all gooey and one mix.
Mix in the dry banana pudding mix until well blended.
Slowly add the rice cereal. I personally think it’s easier to mix in half then add the other half.
Spread the mix into the dish and let it set.
Cut into squares if you have the patience, or just tear into with your hands-they’re just that good.
They look like any other kind of rice krispie treat but I’ll share a picture of how my batch turned out just the same:
