Peanut Butter Rice Krispies

6½ c Rice Krispies
½ c raisins
1 c peanut butter
2 Tbsp butter
¼ c honey

rice krispies_001In a very large bowl mix together the Rice Krispies and raisins. In a separate smaller bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and microwave until melted. I do 1-2 minutes on power 6-7 sometimes 8 to make sure I don’t burn the peanut butter. This is something you’ll have to play with a little with your microwave and what setting work best.

Pour the microwaved mixture onto the Rice Krispie mixture, mix well with your hands until rice krispies_002everything is nicely blended. Then transfer this into either a 9″ x 9″ or 9″ x 13″ pan, depends on how thick you want the bars when you are done. Once you transfer the mixture press down to make it all stick together. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Then cut into bars and enjoy!

Note: When using natural ingredients it takes longer to melt and can be beneficial to start with the butter, then add honey (if it’s raw), and finally the peanut butter.
