Peanut Butter Bars

Peanut Butter Bars


I've always made a variety of cookies, bars and candy for my Christmas gathering and events. I remember when my mom and I would work all day making Christmas cookies. It was so fun decorating the sugar cookies and we made a huge mess.   I love that memory and wish that I had done more of that with my girls, but something must have stuck because here we are in different cities baking away. One of the candies that I make at Christmas is this Peanut Butter Bar or Bark Bars.  It is really simple and is so good.  Rhonda, my previous boss, brought this into work several years ago and of course I had to have the recipe.  I've made it every year since then. It is quick and easy and good - my favorite combination in a recipe. 

1 lb Vanilla Almond Bark
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 c mini marshmallows
1 1/2 c Rice Krispie cereal

Melt bark in the microwave according to instructions.  Add the rest of the ingredients and pour into a lined
9 x 13 inch pan.  Let set in refrigerator about 15 minutes or until it cools.  Cut into squares.
