  • 10 ounce bag miniature marshmallows
  • 2½ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 21 miniature peanut butter cups

  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Use a large cookie dough scoop to measure the mixture. Place a scoopful of the mixture into the palm of your hand. Press down slightly and make an indentation in the middle. Place a peanut butter cup in the indentation. Wrap the mixture around the peanut butter cup.
  4. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat until all of the Peanut Butter Krispie Balls have been shaped.
