A delicious chocolate and peanut butter cereal treat. A simple twist on traditional Rice Krispie treats. Kids love them and they are a great portable snack!
5 Tbs. butter, melted in a large pot
16 oz bag of marshmallows – melt in the butter and stir until all melted and smooth.
1 13 oz box of Reeses Puffs cereal (or any puffed cereal!!)
Melt butter at low-medium heat. You don't want to brown it.
Stir in 16 oz bag of marshmallows. They will melt into the butter. Stir continually until the marshmallows are all melted and the mixture is smooth.
Add the full 13 oz box or Reeses Puffs cereal (chocolate and peanut butter flavor, of course!)
Press into a 9 x 13 pan (I use a casserole dish)
I like to cut the pieces after the cereal treats have cooled a bit but are still warm.
***tip - Put your hands in a food baggie and spray the outside with cooking spray. Makes it much easier to press the cereal down. Your hands don't get as messy!
