  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 16 ounces marshmallows divided
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups rice crisp cereal
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup buttersctoch chips


  • Line a 9x13 inch pan with foil or parchment and preheat oven to 350 while you move on to next step.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter.
  • Reserve 2 cups of marshmallows and set aside. Stir remaining marshmallows into the pot.
  • Add peanut butter and stir until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla and salt, then stir in reserved marshmallows for 1 minute until semi-melted. Stir in cereal.
  • Spread into prepared pan, pressing down slightly (not too much) to create an even layer in the pan. (see tip)
  • Sprinkle milk chocolate and butterscotch chips all over the top and transfer to preheated oven for 5-10 minutes until chocolate/butterscotch chips are semi-melted.
  • Use a spoon or spatula to spread chocolate/butterscotch into an even layer. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars and serving or storing in airtight container.


Spreading into pan: spritz a rubber spatula with nonstick spray before using to spread/press gooey cereal mixture into the pan. 
Cooling the bars: to speed up the process of cooling, I usually put my pan into the fridge for 10 minutes or so.
