  • Author: Cookies & Cups

Description

makes approx 20 squares


Ingredients

  • 4 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 2 cups “rough” crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 (10.5 oz) bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted ~ optional for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9×9 pan by spraying with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Crush your pretzels (it will take approximately 2/12 cups of pretzels to make 2 cups crushed). I put my pretzels in a ziplock bag and with a rolling pin crushed. Don’t crush them until they are dust.
  3. In a large sauce pan over low heat melt your butter.
  4. When the butter is melted, add your marshmallows and stir until almost melted.
  5. Add the peanut butter and stir until smooth.
  6. Remove from heat. Immediately add your pretzels and krispie cereal.
  7. Stir until combined.
  8. Press evenly into prepared pan.
  9. If desired drizzle melted chocolate on top of krispies.
  10. When chocolate is set, cut into squares.
