Blizzard Bars

A kid friendly bar, it's like a chocolatey, candy loaded rice krispie treat!

Mels Kitchen Cafe

12 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips or M&M’s

Garnish: mini marshmallows and additional M&M’s

Lightly grease an 8X8- or 9X9-inch baking pan and set aside.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips for one minute. Stir. Then continue to microwave in 30 second increments until the chips are completely melted. Stir in the peanut butter until combined. Let the mixture cool slightly, about five minutes. Add the rice cereal, marshmallows and chocolate chips and/or M&M’s. Fold together with a rubber spatula until well combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Press additional marshmallows and M&M’s into the top of the bars, if desired. Let the bars cool and set for 5-6 hours until they are firm and no longer gooey and melty or speed up the process by putting in the refrigerator.  Once the bars are firm and set, cut into squares and serve.
