Chocolate Drizzled Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows - OR - 4 cups  miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies® (I don't recommend you skimp here and go name brand) 
  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until melted. 
  2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
  3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. 
  4. Melt 1/2 c chocolate chips and 1/4 c butterscotch chips on low in a saucepan.  Drizzle on top and let cool.
  5. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
I made these for a potluck lunch at work.  They were definitely a hit.  They aren't too heavy and have a great mix of texture and flavor.  This is a fun and easy way to snazz up a classic dessert to make it seem a little more special.
