I have had this recipe in my book for years. Today is the first time I made it and wow! I wish I would have a long time ago. Peanut butter and chocolate goodness. These are rice crispy treats with a kick! This recipe comes from Food Everyday.
Makes 2 Dozen Prep time 30 minutes Total time 30 minutes
1. In a large, deep saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces, over low heat, about 4 minutes. Add 1 bag(10 ounces) mini marshmallows; cook, stirring, until melted, 6 to 8 minutes.
2. Add 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped; cook, stirring, until melted, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Quickly fold in 6 cups rice cereal and 3/4 cup peanut-butter chips until evenly distributed.
3. Coat a 1/4 -cup dry measuring cup with nonstick cooking spray; scoop mixture onto waxed paper, forming clusters. Let set, about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to several days.
To make squares instead of clusters, use a wet spatula and evenly spread mixture into a buttered 9-by-13 inch baking pan. Let set before cutting with a serrated knife.
*I just poured the chocolate morsels in and it worked fine. I also think I will make them smaller next time.
