DIRECTIONS

  • Grease one 8" square cake pan or casserole dish.
  • In a dutch oven, melt the butter; then add the marshmallows and melt them over low heat, stirring as it melts until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Remove from heat and add the cereal, peanuts and coconut, stirring until the mixture is completely covered with the melted marshmallows.
  • With buttered hands, press the cereal mixture into the greased cake pan.
  • Spread the melted chocolate chips over the cereal mixture.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour; then cut into bars and serve.
  • NOTE: the 'cook' time covers the chilling time and the 'prep time covers everything else.
  • Suggestions: swap out the peanuts for another kind, like almonds or macadamia; use a different crunchy cereal like Kix or Cocoa Puffs, etc; swap out the chocolate chips for a different flavor like butterscotch, peanut butter or mint chocolate.
