247 calories per serving
3 T plus 1 t unsalted butter
4 c mini marshmallows
1/3 c creamy peanut butter
½ t kosher salt
6 c Rice Krispies
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips, melted
¼ c chopped roasted, salted peanuts
Butter an 8×8 baking dish with 1 t of the butter (insert your hand into a baggy and use that as a glove to get good coverage). Mix marshmallows, peanut butter, butter and salt and cook on medium heat until all is melted then add cereal. Spray a spoon with Pam so the contents don’t stick to it and use it to press HALF of the mix into the buttered pan. Spread half the chocolate over the mix and then repeat the 2 layers. Finally sprinkle with peanuts.
