juliet had it right

Naming is overrated. As far as I know, the treats I'm about to reveal to you have no official moniker, but that doesn't stop them from being completely addictive and delicious. Nope, it doesn't slow them (or my intake of them) down at all.


"What's in a name?" indeed.

All it takes is one glance at the list of ingredients to know that this is some good candy. It has sweetness, it has crunch, it has saltiness, it has chewiness, and it melts in your mouth.


I've found that the making of this candy can either be tedious or a fun challenge, depending on my attitude at the time. If you work quickly, the mess and overall difficulties are no big deal at all, especially considering the tasty end results.

Good Candy
4 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter
2 pounds white chocolate, chopped

In a large bowl, combine the cereal and marshmallows. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate and peanut butter. Stir the oh-so-drinkable white chocolate-peanut butter mixture into the dry goods and drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper. Let them set until firm and then store in an airtight container.

Amy @ cookbookmaniac said...

beauty, normalality, intelligence and names are overrated. But i reckon this sweet would be fantastic!

jelena said...

sometimes the simplest ingredients make the best deserts...

♥peachkins♥ said...

OMG! It has peanutbutter? My kind of good thing...

Lisa-Marie said...

The milk chocolate versions is called Space cakes here because they look a bit like meteors.

Barbara said...

What's this? Krispy treats with chocolate and pb?? Wow, Grace. You've really created a gem here. Who cares what you call it? There isn't a kid of any age who won't love these.

A Plum By Any Other Name said...

Sounds like you have yourself a no-name winner! It's morning and so I suppose I can justify having cereal covered in chocolate for breakfast. :)

shaz said...

Oh.My.Goodness! I am actually eating Reese's Pieces as I read this. I LOVE peanut butter. This sounds oh so good. I might have to make it with dark chocolate though, not so much of a white choc fan, except when used in baking. But everything else sounds perfect :)

laura said...

This sounds unusual and unusually "good", grace! I love PB and RCrispies in candy!

Joanne said...

Moan. I'm so drooling right now. I think some pretzel bits should be added to this. To get that sweet and salty vibe going :P

LaChelle @ SugarDuchess said...

Ooo, this looks like just the sort of thing I would shove in my face every time I walk by the kitchen. Self control, out the window. And for that reason alone, I must make this! ;)

lisa is cooking said...

Ok, this ingredient list includes four of my favorite things. How can this not be amazing? Must try.

Trissa said...

Ingrid said...

Awww, this is perfect for a non chocolate lovin' family. :)

WizzyTheStick said...

This is the sort of stuff you start off telling yourself you'll make for the kids then end up eating it all yourself....uhhhhhm .....why no I've never done that;-) I'm just saying that I could. LOL

Foodessa said...

No name...how about Gracy treats ;o) When I try making these...I'll certainly have to follow the calendar for my patient time of the month ;)
Not much a fan of white chocolate...although these will be hard to pass up...hence dark choco it is ;o)

Ciao for now and flavourful treats,
Claudia

Marjie said...

Like "Rice Krispie treats" but with chocolate! Delightful!

Abby said...

Nope. Couldn't make this because I'd horde it all for MYSELF.

Carolyn Jung said...

Oooh, I bet this would be heaven in dark chocolate, too.

M D said...

That's so simple and easy! Yet looks fab! I am sure it must have made a great treat!

Lucie said...

I think I would call this "The Most Addictive Thing Ever". And then eat it all up.

Dixie Caviar said...

I just inherited a 1954 community cookbook from Douglas, Georgia, and it is jam packed with old school candy recipes. I can't wait until Christmas so I can start some serious holiday baking.

What's the origin of these delicious looking treats?

pigpigscorner said...

Very good candy indeed.

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets said...

You're right. Who needs a name when a treat looks and tastes this delicious.

Julie M. said...

I'm not a big fan of peanut butter, but I bet all that white chocolate can cancel out any of my doubts. YUM!

God, these treats look delightful. They seem to be bite-sized too which would only mean trouble for me. Awesome.

Those sound tasty. Good Candy is quite an appropriate name!

Amanda said...

This looks delish... and with three small kids underfoot, I think it might be a challenge for me as well! ;)

But I am willing to accept that challenge.

Anything for white chocolate. :)

Robin Sue said...

Oh yummmmmmers these sound so good to me right now! I am bookmarking this to make some time this summer with the kiddies! Thanks Grace!

cookies and cups said...

Oh yum! I love pb and white chocolate combo, and yes..what is in a name?

Deborah said...

Yes - you are right. This does not need a name for me to eat it all!!

Anonymous said...

I make these for my kids, but I use Almond Bark instead of white chocolate. I also add dry roasted peanuts and use chunky peanut butter. Yours sounds delicious!

Sara Steward said...

I would call it White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies~ can't wait to make them!
