Gooey peanut butter marshmallow is dumped over chocolate rice krispie cereal and studded with mini peanut butter cups. Hello. Doesn’t get better than this.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 9 cups mini marshmallows, divided
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups cocoa krispies cereal *see note
  • 1 cup mini Reeses peanut butter cups (or chopped full size ones)

Instructions

  1. Line an 8×8 pan with a sling of parchment paper (or line with foil) and lightly rub sides of pan with butter.
  2. Set aside 1 cup of marshmallows. In a large heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter. Add peanut butter and then the remaining 8 cups of marshmallows. Stir often until melted and smooth.
  3. While marshmallows are melting, in a large bowl combine cereal, peanut butter cups, and remaining 1 cup marshmallows.
  4. When marshmallow mixture is melted and smooth, pour over cereal mixture and stir to combine well.
  5. Transfer mix to prepared pan and let rest until set.

Notes

  • These are very gooey and marshmallow-y because that’s the ratio I like them at 🙂 You can add up to 6 cups of rice krispie cereal if you so desire. Play it by ear while you’re mixing and feel free to adjust to taste.
