Ingredients

Sweet & Salty Rice Krispy Layer

  • 5 cups Rice Krispies
  • ½ cup broken salted pretzels do not crush up, and reserve ¼ cup for top
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 ounces marshmallows depending on how gooey you want them, plus 1 to 2 cups more
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter

Sweet and Salty Chocolate-Peanut Butter Layer

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

Toppings

  • ¼ cup pretzels
  • ¼ cup mini Reese's Pieces

Instructions

Sweet & Salty Rice Krispy Layer

  • Lightly grease a 9 by 13-inch pan or baking dish and set aside.
  • Pour the cereal in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • Add the marshmallows and peanut butter, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal in the large mixing bowl. Stir to combine and add pretzels to mixture and incorporate.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press it evenly into the pan.

Sweet and Salty Chocolate-Peanut Butter Layer

  • In a microwavable bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and peanut butter together in 20-30 second intervals stirring in between each interval. (A minute and a half is what it is usually is for my microwave.)

  • Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
