Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie bars

 In Recipes

Peanut butter chocolate rice krispie bars

Yes, this is as insane as it sound. Rice krispies mixed with marshmallows and butter topped with a layer of chocolatey peanut butter, finished with a glossy layer of chocolate ganache.

I saw the idea for this on Food Network one day but can’t remember AT ALL which show it was or where the idea came from, but it sure stuck. I made these on Saturday and they were finished by Sunday. They are completely addictive and yes, not at all healthy but oh-so-worth it!

Ps. These are also great for bake sales, lunchboxes & kiddie parties (or any parties).
