Triple Peanut Butter Chex Bars

 I am a PEANUT BUTTER fanatic!  That’s why I had to go all out with the name —  Triple Peanut Butter Chex Bars!  

Something about melted peanut butter and marshmallows mixed in with some crunchy chex cereal…it is just a crunchy peanut butter-y experience!

I’ve been making these for my boys since they were little… the older boys, that is.   And, they still think this is such a treat whenever I make them!  These bars are gobbled up before the day is even over!

After these bars are cooled down and cut into squares… then they’re dipped in melted white chocolate with peanut butter chips!  Oh my!

I usually make these with Reese’s Pieces.  But since I took a little pit stop in the Easter candy isle…we ended up with other peanut butter filled candy this time.

This is super easy to mix up!  One bowl and the microwave.  Here’s all what you’ll need for this recipe:  marshmallows, creamy peanut butter, a few tablespoons of butter, only 5 cups of corn chex, peanut butter candy pieces, white chocolate and peanut butter chips.

Put a small (10 ounce) bag of mini marshmallows in a large microwavable bowl with 3 tablespoons of butter.

Melt for 1 minute.  Take out and stir.  Put in for an additional 30 seconds.  Or until completely melted.

Add 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter.  Put back into microwave for another 20 to 30 seconds to heat the peanut butter just a little bit.

Stir the warm peanut butter through the melted marshmallows.

Add 5 cups of corn chex to the melted mixture.  And kinda fold it all in together.  Don’t worry about breaking up some of the chex.  It all comes out perfectly delicious!

Pour in some peanut butter chips and peanut butter pieces and mix a little more.

Put the whole peanut butter, marshmallow-y delicious mess into a 8 x 8 inch baking dish.  (You can put in a little bigger pan, the bars just won’t be as thick.)

Let these bars set up and completely cool (about 15 minutes, if you can wait that long!)  But while you’re waiting to cut into these… go ahead and get the final step ready.

Pour 1/4 cup of peanut butter chips and 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips.  Melt in microwave for 30 seconds and stir.  Put back into melt for 10 seconds intervals, if needed.  Just keep stirring and the chips will melt by the heat you’ve already done.

When you’ve cut the bars, dip the bottom of them into the white chocolate and peanut butter melted mixture.  And set on wax paper or parchment paper to finish cooling the melted bottom.

Look at how the creamy marshmallows blend well with the peanut butter.  It is just a ooey-gooey event of crunchiness!

  5. Oh, Gloria, I wish I could make these!!! I am allergic to peanuts! I suppose I could use almond butter since I don’t know what peanut butter tastes like and I won’t know what I’m missing! Or, I could just make them using only the marshmallow!!! :) Courtney saw them too……she is already asking me to make them! :)

    • Amy, you could easily omit the PB and just use marshmallow. And toss in whatever little candies. Courtney could even make these by herself! She’s so dang cute! (=
