So this dessert is what happens when you combine s'mores with Rice Krispie Treats and Reese's cups and it is wonderful. There is so much crunch to it and it's also delicious. If you haven't tried a s'mores with a Reese's cup instead of a Hershey's bar, I highly recommend it! It's my favorite way to eat s'mores. All the elements together work so well and it's really such an easy dessert to make. You don't have to be ridiculously skilled at making desserts to make this. You layer most of the ingredients and the other half is just melting a chocolate mixture in the microwave and stirring peanut butter and Rice Krispies into it. So anyone can make this. If you have kids (or have friends with kids or you're an aunt/uncle/cousin etc to kids), this would be a great recipe to make with kids of any age.

What you need:
  • 5 whole graham crackers
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1/2 cup mini peanut butter cups
Directions:
  1. Prepare an 8x8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and the line with parchment paper that overhangs the sides.
  2. Arrange graham crackers on the bottom of the pan. If you have to break some pieces to fill in the gaps, that is okay!
  3. Top graham crackers with marshmallows evenly and then bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 7 minutes or until they are puffy.
  4. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. In a large microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips, corn syrup, and butter and microwave for 30 seconds at a time on half power until mixture is smooth. Stir well between each heating.
  6. Then stir in peanut butter and fold in Rice Krispies.
  7. Top marshmallows with peanut butter cups evenly and then press Rice Krispies over the top evenly.
  8. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
  9. Life bars out of the pan using the overhang and cut into square or rectangle pieces.
  10. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
