These bars are fantastic!!!! My son said they are his new favorite bar cookie and my daughter who refuses to eat pecans was hearing all the rave comments about them, gave in and tried one and low and behold she loved it!!! How can you not love choc,peanut butter and rice Krispie's and marshmallows!!!! Made them for part of my Christmas cookie collection and they freeze very well. Will make more often since they were a smash hit. I did add a bit more marshmallow's to make sure the bottom crust was completely covered, no bare spots and left in a little longer than 3 min. keep watch on them while heating. They should get puffed. Try these they are a real treat!! Thanks so much for posting the recipe!!


These are soooo DELISH!! I made them twice last week! Once for my coworkers and once for my family.. Nothing but great reviews! Even people that aren't fond of marshmellows liked them a lot!

Let me start my review by saying while all the ingredients of this bar (minus the bottom) taste yummy on thier own, I wasn't impressed with the outcome. It sounds yummy and decadent, but they didn't come together and blend well together (tastewise). Maybe because of the layering, because we all know, take the bottom away and they are a peanutbutter rice kripspie treat dipped in chocolate and what's not good about that?? But those would have been better than these bars. Didn't like the bottoms at all. I'm still giving them 3 stars because they are edible... just not a recipe that I will be making again. My husband and 2 boys agree that they were nothing special. :/
