I make these cookies every Christmas & someone always asks for the recipe. In lieu of white choc you can use colored chocolate discs or semi-sweet chocolate for a variety. Delicious

I changed the recipe to tailor more to traditional rice crispy treats. I used the same amount of peanuts and white chocolate (which I colored green for St. Patrick's Day) but increased the peanut butter to 1.5 cups, marshmallows to 2.5 cups and rice crispies to about 5 cups. I put the mixture into a large pan to harden and they turned out great!

I've made this but have used less marshmallows and added even mini m&m's and coconut. For the holidays, I've even added color sprinkles to them just before putting the balls in the fridge to set.
