When I make these, I melt the peanut butter and butter together before adding the marshmallows. After pressing them into the pan, I sprinkle about 1/4 c each chocolate and butterscotch chips over the treats, then put the pan into a warm oven for a few minutes to help soften the chips. Swirl the melted chips together to add another dimensions of yumminess to the treats.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare a 9x9 pan by spraying with cooking spray.
  2. Over low heat, melt butter and marshmallows in a large, non-stick pan. Stir frequently until creamy.
  3. Add in peanut butter, and stir until smooth.
  4. Turn off heat and add in the cereal. Stir gently until cereal is evenly coated with mixture.
  5. Scrape into the 9x9 pan and smooth down until flat on top (either use wax paper and push with your hands, or use the back of a large metal spoon).
  6. Let cool, then cut into bars.
