The aisles of the market can be the most inspiring. When I saw these Peanut Butter Cheerios on the shelf I knew they would make the perfect riff on the ol’ rice krispy treat. With an added touch of even more peanut butter and a sprinkle of chocolate chips – the cereal became a decadent snack that you can’t stop eating!
6 cups Peanut Butter Cheerios
2 Tablespoons butter
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
10 ounces (approx. 40 ) regular sized marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips
Prep a 9×13 pan by greasing it with butter.
In a pot over medium high heat melt the butter and peanut butter. Add in the marshmallows until you get a nice gooey mess.
Turn the heat off and add the Peanut Butter Cheerios and stir to combine making sure all of the cereal gets coated.
Press into the prepped pan and while the cereal is still warm, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top so they melt slightly.
Let cool and cut into squares. These taste best if served the same day.
