Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

  What kid doesn't like Rice Krispies, peanut butter, & chocolate? Can't think of any? Me neither. That makes these Chocolate Marshmallow Bars the perfect treat for an after school snack.

Chocolate Marshmallow Bars
makes 3 dozen

3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. baking cocoa
4 cups mini marshmallows

1-1/3 cups chocolate chips
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Preheat oven to 350*.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter & sugar. Add eggs & vanilla; beat until fluffy. Combine flour, baking powder, salt & cocoa; add to creamed mixture. Spread in a greased 15 inch x 10 inch x 1 inch cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 15-18 minutes.

Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over cake; return to oven for 2-3 minutes.

It will look like this after baking the marshmallows.
Using a knife sprayed with non-stick spray or dipped in water, spread the melted marshmallows evenly over cake. Cool.

For topping, combine chocolate chips, butter, & peanut butter in a small saucepan. (Or melt in the microwave for about a minute or until melted.) Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted & well blended. Remove from heat; Stir in cereal. Spread over bars. Chill.

Try to control yourself after you try them. :)

Enjoy your day!
