While there's nothing wrong whatsoever with the classic rice krispie treat—I can eat them by the pan full—sometimes a girl's gotta mix things up. Because sometimes you have a family-size box of Reese's Puffs cereal and a bag of mini marshmallows in the pantry and you so want to find out if you can make a peanut buttery, chocolaty, puffs-y version of everyone's favorite marshmallow treat.
I mean, it's been done with Lucky Charms and Trix cereals and those turned out deliciously well,
Who doesn't love a dessert you can make using four ingredients and have ready to serve in about 10 minutes...or less if you eat it straight from the pot and ignore the 9x13-inch pan altogether.
These Reese's Puffs cereal bars were gone within hours. And even if I hadn't given a third of the pan to our neighbors to stop me from eating them all, the rest of the family would have licked the pan clean by bedtime. If you love Reese's Puffs cereal, you totally have to whip up a batch of these Reese's Puffs cereal bars!
