I’m pretty sure that every weekend my boys ask me to make “something yummy”, as they say it. Which means something with chocolate and peanut butter. My big boy has a definite addiction to peanut butter, whether it’s cookies, cake, bars, or eating it straight from the jar with his finger. He loves it, so you wouldn’t be surprised to know his favorite candy is Reese’s, can you really blame him? They are amazing!
Today we have a really easy Peanut Butter Cereal Bar to share with you today, these are were simple to make and the pan of bars didn’t last long at our house. Hope you enjoy!
How to Make Gooey Peanut Butter Cereal Bars
- 6 Cups Cereal
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 10 Ounces Marshmallows
- 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1 1/2 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
Step 1 – In a large microwave save bowl, melt the marshmallows and butter – Mine took about 60 seconds on high in the microwave.
Step 2 – Mix in the Peanut Butter and 1 cup of the Chocolate Chips until smooth and well mixed together
Step 3 – Mix int he 6 cups of cereal util well coated
Step 4 – Spread in a greased 9×13 pan and sprinkle the additional 1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips on top – I pressed mine into the cereal mixture slightly. Let set and cut into squares. Enjoy!
Don’t these look like gooey peanut buttery goodness? They are, let me tell you! I’m not a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan, I’d prefer a Lemon Desert any day of the week but these bars are giving my lemon a run for their money. I admittedly ate 4 bars myself, yep, they were good sized too. Yum!!
