Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

If you like chocolate and peanut butter – this recipe is for you!

First, make peanut butter rice crispy treats, recipe can be found at:  http://www.ricekrispies.com/recipes/peanut-butter-treats.aspx#/recipes/peanut-butter-treats

To make it easy, I’ve brought the key parts of the recipe over:

3 Tbsp margarine or butter

4 cups mini marshmallows

1/2 cup peanut butter

6 cups rice crispies

Melt the margarine or butter in a very large sauce pan and add the marshmallows.  Stir until melted and creamy, stir in the rice crispies and then fold in the peanut butter.  Spread the treats into a large pan lined with parchment or wax paper.  This is seriously sticky stuff, so spray a little non-stick cooking spray on a rubber spatula and use it to press the rice crispy treats into the pan.

Admittedly, these are pretty good but imagine adding chocolate and more peanut butter!

So, once you have squished those rice crispy treats into your pan make this peanut butter chocolate frosting:

6 oz chocolate chips

1 cup peanut butter

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then add the peanut butter.  Microwave a little more until it is smooth and creamy when stirred and no chunks of chocolate remain.  Pour the frosting over the rice crispy treats and refrigerate for about 30 minutes, if you can wait that long.

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Squares

Cut into bars and serve.  I always cut the edges off to make beautiful bars of uniform shape and then I eat the edges before anyone sees them!
