Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies


Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies (Makes 12 Squares)
Time: 45mins

I had been craving these treats for months and when I finally brought all the ingredients home I noticed the cereal had expired 6 months prior. What a let down! Has that ever happened to you? After getting a new box the following day I decided to make a chocolate peanut butter version and it didn't disappoint. Hope you enjoy these treats, feel free to share links to your favorite versions!

Ingredients:
- 5 1/2-6c Rice Krispies
- 10 oz Bag of Marshmallows
- 4.5tbsp Salted Butter
- 1 1/2c Chocolate Chips 
- 2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Peanut Butter Powder (Just Great Stuff)

Frosting:
- 1tbsp Peanut Butter Powder
- 1 1/2c Chocolate Chips
  1. Melt the butter on medium heat. Make sure to watch the pan to keep the butter from burning.
  2. Add marshmallows to the pan. Once melted, add 1/2c PB Powder and 2tbsp Cocoa Powder to the marshmallow mixture.
  3. Remove pan from heat and add the cereal. You can play with the amount depending on the consistency you want.
  4. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and pour in the cereal mixture. Use a spatula to pack down the treats. 
  5. Melt 1 1/2c Chocolate chips and PB Powder in the microwave (90 seconds - I stir every 30 seconds). 
  6. Frost the cooled treats and enjoy!
