Since the holidays are approaching, I’ve had the urge to start baking some of my family’s traditional tasty treats! My best friend and I were talking about which treats were the most common in our households and we came across one similarity: Rice Krispies Treats®. Only, her mom made them with peanut butter and mine made them with marshmallow crème. So we decided to mix our moms’ traditions and make them with both! But of course we couldn’t stop there. After a random internet search, we found the cutest shapes you can mold these treats into on the Rice Krispies site! We chose turkey tracks since Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Together, we came up with a new tradition. Do you have about half an hour? Share our new peanut butter turkey tracks tradition with your family in just 5 simple steps!
Peanut Butter Turkey Tracks Recipe:
Peanut Butter Turkey Tracks Ingredients
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz.) Marshmallows or 1 jar (7 oz.) of marshmallow crème
- 6 cups Rice Krispies® cereal
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 bag of candy corn
- Frosting (I suggest chocolate)
How To Make Peanut Butter Turkey Tracks
Step 1: In a saucepan, melt butter on low heat. Then, add marshmellows and stir until they are completely melted (it’s OK to turn up the heat some to speed up the melting process). Finally, add the peanut butter and stir until it’s melted and smells like heaven. Remove your new mixture from the heat.
Step 2: Add the RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir it in until the cereal is completely covered.
Step 3: Separate the mixture into 24 portions using a 1/4-cup measuring cup coated in cooking spray (if not it WILL stick).
Step 4: Let it cool slightly and then use your hands to shape your treats. I rubbed butter on my hands to be sure they didn’t stick.
Step 5: The easiest (and most fun) part is to spread some frosting where the toes would be. Finally, stick the candy corns to the frosting!
