Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows or 7 ounce jar of marshmallow creme 1
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 12 Butterfinger bites or half of 10 oz bag, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening

Instructions

  • Spray 8x8 pan with Pam or equivalent non-stick spray.
  • Measure out rice krispies and chop Butterfinger pieces before you actually make the rice krispies.
  • Use a large-sized pan and on low-medium heat, melt butter and peanut butter together, stirring frequently.
  • After melted, add in marshmallows and melt, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from burner, and add in the rice krispies until well mixed.
  • Measure out approximately 1/4 cup out of the chopped Butterfinger pieces for the topping and set aside.
  • Add the rest of the chopped Butterfingers to the rice krispies and mix well.
  • Immediately pour the mixture into the 8x8 pan and spread, then press evenly. (I placed waxed paper on top and pressed the mixture down without getting my hands all sticky).
  • After the rice krispies have cooled, cut them evenly into 9 even pieces and place about 1/2 inch apart on waxed paper.
  • Melt the milk chocolate chips and shortening either on the stove or microwave. (I use the microwave, with 30 second intervals - normally a total of 1 -1/2 minutes).
  • Take a ziploc bac and pour chocolate into bag. Cut a very small snip on corner of ziploc bag and squeeze the chocolate to the corner to start drizzling chocolate on each of the treats.
  • Then take the 1/4 cup of chopped Butterfingers that were set aside, and sprinkle on all the treats.
  • With remaining chocolate, drizzle chocolate on top of butterfinger layer.
  • Place the krispie treats in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set the chocolate, (don't leave in longer) then remove them from the refrigerator and store them in a covered container.
