I love peanut butter and chocolate. Always have. Here is my new recipe, Reese’s Cocoa Pebbles Treats. The ingredients are cereal, marshmallows, butter, peanut butter and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Pumpkins. A peanut butter and chocolate lovers dream.
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 entire bag and 3/4 bag of miniature marshmallows
3/4 package of Halloween Reese’s pumpkins or Peanut Butter Cups (the rest were tasted for quality control 😉), roughly chopped
10 cups of Cocoa Pebbles cereal
Melt butter. Add peanut butter to the pan and melt the peanut butter into melted butter. Add in the roughly chopped Reese’s pumpkins or peanut butter cups. Once melted, stir in the cereal and press into a buttered 13 x 9 pan. Decorate if desired and once cool, cut into squares. Enjoy!
There a so many things I could have called this recipe. The Lazy Recipe, for the most part, no measuring (yay!), The Breakup Dessert (guaranteed to make you feel better after a breakup) or Satisfy All Your Cravings Bars. These bars are quick and easy to make and are delicious. The perfect salty and sweet combination.
Layers 1 and 2
3 1/2 cups of pretzel sticks
1 stick butter, melted
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag toffee bits
1 bag peanut butter chips
1 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
lightly crushed potato chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
Line a 9 x 13 pan with foil. I used nonstick foil but you can also use regular foil, just spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Let the foil hang out over the edge so it can be lifted from the pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a food processor or blender, crush the pretzels in to crumbs. Add sugar and melted butter. Press pretzel crumbs on top of foil to form the bottom crust.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of pretzel crust. I used about half a bag.
Next, sprinkle toffee bits on top of of chocolate chips. I used about half of a bag.
Layer 4 and 5
I sprinkled a half bag of white chocolate chips on top of the toffee bits and then I sprinkled peanuts on top of the white chocolate chips.
I covered the peanuts with a half bag of peanut butter chips and the last layer was crushed potato chips. The glue that binds everything together is the sweetened condensed milk. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the chips. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Lift out of pan and cut into squares. Enjoy!
