Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Here is a nice no-bake-one-bowl dessert for you all.  Seriously minimal effort here with big time results.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
4 cups rice krispies
1 cup mini marshmallows

1. Melt chocolate chips in microwave or double boiler.  Stir in peanut butter. Add in rice krispies and marshmallows, stir to combine.
2. Press into a foil-lined, greased 9x13 inch pan*.
3. Chill for at least 30 minutes in the fridge until set, I just rested mine on the counter for an hour or so.  Cut into bars.

*When I pressed my bars into the pan I was nervous that I wasn't able to pack the mixture dense enough.  If you feel you are having a similar issue, I wrapped a cookbook in plastic wrap and placed it on top of the bars while they hardened.

These bars are perfectly decadent!
