Marg~oh where oh where has this magnificent treat been hiding all my life? This is perfect for two reasons~(well MORE then two) but right off the top, this tastes to me like a crunchy peanut butter cup. Secondly, I can make these totally vegan by substituting special dark chocolate and melting this in with the corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter. Oh this is over the top great. My son, Bryan (vegan) scarfed them down and there was a half of rice Krispie shell left in the bottom of the pan....I grabbed that before he could :D Thanks Marg, these were really terrific.

I made a double batch of these last night for a bake sale this morning. It started out a single batch...but DH LOVED these!! I also used regular choc chips (only thing on hand) Marg thank you for such an easy and wonderful recipe!! The $$$ earned goes towards Relay for Life and Breast Cancer Awareness. Thank you again!

These are great! I reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup and only use 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. I also substitute a cup of cereal with a cup of quick cooking oats for a bit of whole grain! My whole family loves them.

Absolutely delicious!! With no store-bought marshmallows, I thought these might be a little too hard, but they have almost the same consistency as regular rice krispy treats.

Very easy and tasty! I am not a big sweet eater, so a bit too sweet for my taste, but all raved about them. Next time I may add 1/2 cup more peanut butter. Also, I only had regular chocolate chips. The ones on the top kept falling off (not good if eating in the car or living room lol) Next time, I may add them all into the mixture first or try melting them a bit so they stick to the top of the bars. But, all in all, great just as is! Thanks for posting Marg. : )

delicious and pretty easy! couldn't stop eating them! though good warm, the consistency is much better after being refrigerated for a couple hours, so i recommend making them ahead and chilling for a bit. thanks so much! will make again!

I bought a box of the jumbo krispies and my kids didn't really like them. So I was happy to find a recipe I could use them in! I forgot that they are 'kissed with honey' so they were WAY sweet. But the kids gobbled them up and we didn't waste! I've never been overly impressed with the marshmallow recipe so this was a nice change. Gotta feel good about throwing in some healthy peanut butter, as well! Thanks, Marg.

These are good and very easy to make. I made them as directed the first time but the second time left out the chocolate chips and I liked it even better. Great recipe! I'll definitely be making these again.

These are great Rice Krispie treats. They are easy to make and last longer(without getting hard and stale) than regular treats. I would have liked a little more peanut butter flavor, but I think if I used less chocolate chips that problem would be solved.
