Sailor's Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Two blogs that I check regularly are "Prudence Pennywise" and her daughter's blog "Sailor: Little Girl on the Go!" I should rephrase that - I check Prudence Pennywise and whenever my daughter hears the song on her blog by Gracie Fields "If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake" she runs over to my computer and asks to check Sailor's blog. I always oblige since I love looking at it as well. A while ago Sailor made these yummy fudgey bars and one cold November day - Logan knew it was the perfect time to attempt them in our home.

Sailor's Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
6 oz Semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 sticks + 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
One 16 oz jar peanut butter
3 cups Rice Crispies
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups confectioners sugar

1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. In a medium saucepan, melt half of the chocolate and 1 tablespoon butter over low heat. Remove from the heat; stir in 1 cup peanut butter, then 2 cups rice cereal. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan; refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Wash out the saucepan.
2. In the saucepan, combine the remaining 2 sticks butter and the salt; melt over medium heat, stirring. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining peanut butter and the confectioners' sugar. Spread half of the peanut butter mixture over the cereal layer. Top with the remaining 1 cup cereal.
3. In a small bowl, microwave the remaining chocolate at medium power until melted, 1 1/2 minutes. Stir into the remaining peanut butter mixture. Spread evenly on the cereal-topped peanut butter layer; refrigerate until set, about 45 minutes. Cut into 16 pieces.

Have a huge glass of milk on hand! These Peanut Butter fudgey morsels are over the top sweet, over the top good, and over the top easy! We can't wait to see what Sailor does next! Check out her cute blog today!

You are so cute! I am so glad that you made my recipe and that you liked it. It really is Rachael Ray's recipe but I loved it too. Thanks so much for always coming to my blog. I can't believe you were born in Rochester! I love it there. We try to go for a visit every fall. Love, Sailor
