These bars are a twist on an old-time, but, still new-time favorite treat loved by many!
A classic sticky, marshmallowy, crunchy and chewy rice krispie gets topped with another classic flavor combo loved by most; chocolate and peanut butter!
Smooth and creamy peanut butter gets mixed with chopped mini reesee's peanut butter cups and butterfingers. And as if that isn't enough, the peanut butter filling gets topped with more melted milk chocolate!
Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats: (Brown Eyed Baker, adapted by me)
-6 cups Rice Krispies
-1 bag (10.5 oz.) miniature marshmallows, or 40 large marshmallows
-1/4 cup butter
-2 cups creamy peanut butter
-20 miniature peanut butter cups (6 oz.), quartered
-10 miniature butterfingers (6 oz.), roughly chopped
-1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1. Spray a 13x9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2. Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Microwave the marshmallows and butter together in a large bowl until melted, about 3 minutes. Pour marshmallow mixture over cereal and mix well so that all the cereal is coated. Pour into prepared pan and press mixture evenly into pan.
3. In microwave, melt peanut butter until thin, about 1 minute. Gently stir in quartered peanut butter cups and butterfingers and then pour over the treats, spreading it evenly over the top.
4. Again, in the microwave, melt the milk chocolate chips and spread evenly over the top of the peanut butter mixture. Place pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container.
