Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Rice Crispy Treats

14 Jun

I am in love with Peanut Butter and Co. They have some of the most wonderfully creative peanut butter spreads like Cinnamon Raisin Swirl and Dark Chocolate Dreams. I bought one of each yesterday; they are the answer to my ADD food problem.  I always get bored halfway through a meal because after a few bites of one thing, I want to try something new. It’s the reason why I usually have five different things on my plate at one time.  However, there are so many desserts I could make with these peanut butters that I am peeing in my pants with excitement.  The first thing I made was cinnamon raisin swirl rice crispy treats. They came out tasting like a really good peanut butter cookie but not overly sweet. Enjoy!


  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmellows
  • 4 spoonfuls raisin cinnamon swirl peanut butter
  • 6 cups crisped rice cereal


Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir in peanut butter. Add the cereal. Stir until well combined.  Using a buttered spatula press the mixture into a 13 by 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray. Let cool and cut into 2 inch squares.

    Peanut Butter & Co. RT’d your recipe on Twitter and I followed the link. This looks delicious. I love their peanut butter too. I have tried all kinds of recipes using it, but I didn’t think of Rice Crispy Treats! I like getting some salty pretzels and just dipping them in their different kinds of peanut butter. So yummy and not boring when you dip into a couple different flavors. Very nice blog. I LOVE to bake too.
