Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 20 peanut butter cups cut into 4 pieces
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons light colored corn syrup
  • 10 ounce package plus 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or melting chocolate for drizzle

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine the cereal and peanut butter cups.
  2. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick spray.
  3. In a large pot, melt butter over low heat.
  4. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth.
  5. Stir in syrup and peanut butter until well incorporated.

  6. Remove pot from heat and fold in cereal mixture until cereal is evenly coated. The peanut butter pieces will melt and fall apart somewhat. Be gently so there are some chunks of the peanut butter cups in the mixture.
  7. Press mixture into the sprayed 9x13 inch pan. Use your hands or a large bottomed glass to smooth the top completely. Press firmly to compact so the bars will stick together. Set aside.
  8. In a zip-top bag, add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and microwave at 30 seconds intervals until melted.
  9. Snip corner off zip-top bag and drizzle over bars in a decorative pattern.
  10. Allow bars to sit 30 to 45 minutes to allow the chocolate cool and harden.
