  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Heat the corn syrup and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until marshmallows are melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the crispy rice cereal. Press the cereal mixture into the prepared baking pan. Place a sheet of aluminum foil over the cereal mixture, and use a soup can to press the cereal together firmly to create a dense layer. Remove the foil, and spread the peanut butter on top, then refrigerate the pan.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips with the vegetable oil in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, allow it to cool slightly before spreading over the peanut butter layer. Return pan to the refrigerator, and chill until the chocolate layer has hardened, about 30 minutes. Cut into 36 bars.

Loved these! I warmed the marshmellow mixture and the chocolate in the microwave instead of the stove. I used wax paper instead of aluminum foil to put over the the rice krispie bar part before pressing mixture to dense layer. Super Yummy and very fun to make. Thanks for the great recipe!

Good inspiration but I heavily altered my version to cut down on the fat and sugar. I really like how it turned out; the original would have been too intense for me. I used 1/4 cup of honey instead of corn syrup and 2 cups of marshmallows (not 3). Plain Rice Krispy cereal (not chocolate). Used 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 3/4 cup of choco chips. Melted the PB&CC in a double boiler - did not use oil at all. *Use wax paper, not foil, to press the cereal mixture down*
