  • 2 cups salted peanuts
  • 2 cups peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal


  1. Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease it. Set it aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the salted peanuts and crispy rice cereal. Set aside.
