Ingredients

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
1 (10 1/2-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
6 cups oven-toasted rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
Cooking spray
3/4 cup peanut butter chips

Preparation

Combine the peanut butter and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high 45 seconds or until mixture melts. Add marshmallows; microwave at high 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Add cereal to peanut butter mixture; toss until well-combined. Pat cereal mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Place peanut butter chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high 30 seconds or until chips melt. Spoon melted chips in a small heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag; drizzle melted chips over cereal mixture. Cool slightly; cut into 24 pieces.
