Chocolate and Peanut Butter Frosted Rice Krispies Treats

I am starting to enjoy experimenting with Rice Krispies Treats.  I bought a box of Reese's Chocolate and Peanut Butter Puffs cereal and thought they would be fun to try in a rice krispies treat.  I also wanted to try frosting the treats this time and it turned a regular treat into a very decadent dessert.  My son had one after school with a glass of milk and he gushed how good it was with every bite.  Even my daughter who can be hot and cold when it comes to sweets loved this one.  If you cannot find the Reese's Puff, just substitute all rice cereal instead and it will be just as good.



Ingredients:
4 cups Reese's Puff Cereal
4 cups rice cereal
4-5Tbs Tbs butter
1 (10oz) bag of mini marshmallows (divided)
1/3 cup peanut butter

Frosting:
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup peanut butter
pinch of salt
chopped roasted and salted peanuts (optional)

Directions:
On medium low heat, melt butter, peanut butter and  marshmallows (reserve 1 cup mini marshmallows).  Once fully melted add the rice cereal and Reeses' cereal and mix well.  Then add the remaining cup of mini marshmallows and mix together with the rice krispies. Pour mixture into a buttered baking dish and press down. Top with frosting and allow rice krispies to set for 2 hours. Cut into squares and serve. Enjoy.


Tip:  I used wax paper over the mixture so I could press down the with my hands.

Frosting:  In microwave (or double boiler) melt chocolate with milk and peanut butter until smooth.
