Freakin' Fantastic Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars

Late this summer I decided to dip my toe into baking competitions by entering a few items in our county fair.
Baking was listed under Senior Homemaking ~ does that make me sound old or what!!
When I noticed that one of the categories was cereal bars I knew just the recipe to enter.  I think these cereal bars definitely live up to their name.  If you like the combination of peanut butter, chocolate and rice krispy treats then you'll probably think they are freakin' fantastic too.  The judges agreed and I won first place in the cereal bar competion ~ yay me!  I received a blue ribbon and a $2.00 cash prize - woo hoo!



Freakin' Fantastic Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars
(Adapted from Picky Palate)

6 cups Rice Krispy cereal
4 cups mini marshmallows
3 T butter
2 cups creamy peanut butter
Reese Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
melted chocolate to drizzle

Place cereal into a large mixing bowl, set aside.  In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat.  Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.  Remove from heat and add cereal.  Stir until well coated.  Pour into a well greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish and evenly press mixture into the bake dish.
Melt peanut butter in microwave for about 45 seconds and pour over cereal, spread to even it out.  Sprinkle crushed peanut butter cups on top of the peanut butter and then drizzle chocolate on top.  YUM!
