This is the same recipe I grew up eating! We also just sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and let them melt on their own now. Quicker and less mess to clean up, I prefer this recipe as it isn't as sweet as the ones with butterscotch chips. YUM!!!!!

This is the way I like my rice krispies. I suppose this is a scotcharoo recipe without the butterscotch, which is ok by me. I grew up on the plain marshmallow version, but have come to prefer these. I also add a teaspoon of vanilla with the peanut butter and instead of melting the chocolate separately I dump the chips over the warm rice krispies and put them in a warm oven for a minute or two and then use a spatula to spread.
