white chocolate peanut butter candy


This is my friend Barb’s recipe for a decadent candy that everyone devours. I fell in love with this at first bite and have been making it ever since. It is no bake, gluten free (using rice krispies), and crazy delicious. It is so quick and easy, a batch can be whipped up in 10 minutes.

This 5-ingredient recipe yields a candy that is simultaneously crunchy, fluffy, crispy, creamy, sweet and salty. The combination of white chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in candy heaven~so delicious!

I use Publix or generic rice krispys for this candy, but Barb told me that Crispix also works well. Rice krispy cereals are supposedly gluten free, whereas Crispix is typically not.

The white chocolate chips that I prefer are Ghirardelli, one of the brands that  garnered a recommended rating by Cook’s Illustrated. Taste testers describe these chips’  “sweet cream” flavor as being “rich,” and “milky,” with a “buttery” texture.

Cook’s Illustrated taste tests gave the Nestle chips a “recommended with reservations” rating, describing them as “absurdly sweet.” I think these chips still work fine in this recipe, however, since the saltiness of the peanuts offsets the sweetness of the chips.

A big shout out to my friend Barb for sharing this! It really is a favorite, especially with teenagers! If you try this, please let me know. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
