The best thing is, this recipe is really easy to make and doesn't require a lot of time. You can also make some simple alterations to the recipe to cater to your dietary needs or to make it healthier if you like. No bake treats are the perfect dessert recipes for any occasion, but they are especially great for any time you don't want to use your oven. This Reeses Krispie no bake cookies recipe would also be perfect for the beginner baker or for kids who are interested learning to make easy dessert recipes. You will need to use a stovetop though, so younger kids should be supervised while making this recipe. With dessert recipes like this one, you may even find that you will already have a lot of the ingredients on hand already. You may only have to buy the peanut butter cups for this recipe.

All you need is some sugar, corn syrup, creamy peanut butter, Rice Krispies cereal, some Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can use either the full Reese’s Peanut Butter cups or the mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups for this recipe, just make sure that you chop up the full-sized ones if you use them so that they melt evenly. Melting all of the ingredients together is the only time you need to use heat in this recipe, and it would only take about a few minutes. You could also use the microwave instead of the stovetop if you wanted to. Just be careful to watch how much time it's in there for and stir it often to keep it from burning. The cookies will hold their shape as they cool and then you're left with some solid peanut butter and chocolate cookies to enjoy. It's much like making rice crispies cake without the marshmallows. To make these cookies even more decadent, you could sprinkle some chocolate on top or some melted chocolate for a decorative touch. You could even put some crushed toffee or caramel on top for a really epic treat.

Some ideas to make this dessert recipe a bit healthier is to use a healthier sweetener like maple syrup or honey as the sweetener for the recipe. You could also use almond butter for a healthier nut butter or cashew butter. If you or someone in your household or someone you'll be serving these cookies to is allergic or sensitive to nuts, you can also use a nut-free peanut butter alternative. There are some great new products out there that taste like peanut butter, but they don't contain any nuts at all, so they are completely safe for those with nut allergies. It's always good to opt for this type of ingredient if you're going to serve these at a school or anywhere else, or find out if anyone is allergic to nuts before you make a treat that contains them. There are even healthier versions of peanut butter cups as well that are made with all organic and healthy ingredients that you could use in this recipe. Using chocolate chips that are made from raw cacao will also be healthier than using milk chocolate too, and raw cacao even has some great health benefits and contains a lot of vitamins and minerals.
