Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

Do you ever find a recipe and think to yourself; I can’t wait to try this, only to find it later and think; What was I thinking?  That was the case with this recipe.  I got all the ingredients some time ago eager to make it, but then when I decided to make it I was for sure it wouldn’t be anything good.  I was wrong.  They turned out great and were very easy to make.  They'd good for lunches or a bake sale. 
(Of note, I don’t have it written down where the recipe came from so can’t give credit where due.)


Layer one is a tube of peanut butter cookie dough spread out on a ungreased 9X13.  Bake 10-13 minutes or until edges are beginning to brown and the middle is set. 

Throw on 2 cups mini marshmallows and throw back in the oven and bake until the marshmallows puff up (4-5 minutes). Remove and cool.


Give Josey a marshmallow to play with (and remember to pick it up later before it gets stuck to the bottom of your shoe or becomes glued to the dining room rug). 


In a sauce pan over medium stir and melt 2 cups chocolate chips, ¼ c. sliced butter and ½ cup peanut butter.  Stir until smooth.



Remove from heat and add 2 c rice krispie cereal and ½ c salted peanuts. 

Drop by spoonfuls over marshmallows and spread to cover. 

Cool and cut into bars.

So, I have an entire pan of these and I don’t want to eat them, so... I took them to work where they’ll eat anything and everything.  Now I’ve got an open package of rice krispie cereal.  I could make rice krispie treats, but I’m thinking of trying something else.  Stay tuned!

Sound delicious Julie. I bet you could mix up some peanut butter cookies and use them in place of the bought dough. I will have to give them a try. I bet the volunteers at Hillcrest Thrift Shop would really like them. Patricia
