  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, peanut butter and confectioners' sugar until well blended. Mix in the rice cereal so that it is evenly distributed. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
  2. In the microwave or over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the peanut butter bars. Refrigerate until set before cutting into bars.

These are great, I used regular (not natural) peanut butter which works better, and I used 2 cups of chocolate chips. Delicious!

A little too sweet for my family's taste - I will make again adjusting the amount of sugar in the recipe.

I can't believe how easy this recipe was to make! I made it before work in about 35 minutes. It got rave reviews by all my co-workers. I didn't have quite enough sugar (about 1 2/3 cup), but I t...

although the bar is super peanut buttery, i enjoyed the taste. the cereal in it reminded me of puppy chow.

Delicious! A very quick, simple recipe. I scaled it to serve half as much, and it still turned out perfectly. I'd definitely make this again.
