Remember, when I said that my diet was being worked on? It still is. Kinda. Just not as aggressively as originally planned. Whenever I am planning what to make for the week, I do an inventory of what' in my pantry. Marshmallows and chocolate were there last week..and peanut butter. Well, peanut butter is always in my pantry. My 7 year old lives on peanut butter, it's easy and a bit frustrating at the same time. Anyway...back to treats.. grabbing a box of Rice Krispies seemed the logical choice. I was pretty good with these. Only snacked on 1 or 2. It was not easy. They are delicious and if you are trying to diet..you have been warned!
3 TBSP butter
4 cup mini marshmallows or approx 40 regular sized
1/2 cup peanut butter
6 cup Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
In a large saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over low heat. Stir in peanut butter and melt completely. Add cereal 1 cup at a time until well coated. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Evenly press cereal mixture into a greased 13 x 9 pan. Let cool slightly. Melt remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and drizzle over cereal bars. Cool completely before serving.
