Peanut Butter Rice Krispies

This is another little cookie bar recipe I got when I was first married.


  • 24 marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies

Melt the marshmallows, butter, and peanut butter in a double boiler until all ingredients are blended.  Pour over the cereal, mix well and press into a 10×15 baking dish.  Cut into bars.
