The other day I decided to jazz up the standard rice crispy treat recipe with some peanut butter and dark chocolate. The results were pure yum and disappeared exceedingly quickly.
- 8 cups rice crispy cereal
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 5 cups mini marshmallows
- Dark chocolate to drizzle on the top
Melt butter in the microwave in a medium sized bowl. Add peanut butter and marshmallows and continue to heat in microwave about 4-5 minutes, stirring every couple minutes, until marshmallows are fully melted, and ingredients are completely combined.
Measure rice crispy cereal into a large bowl. Pour peanut butter/marshmallow mixture over the rice crispy cereal and stir til well combined. Press into a buttered 9×12 pan. Refrigerate.
Melt dark or semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler until liquid. Drizzle over the top of the cereal bars. Chill until chocolate is set. Enjoy!
