From the Kitchen: Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

This is a bit of a combination of two separate "crisped rice cereal" recipes I found on various off-brand boxes. Survey says they were definitely worth making again.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Bar Ingredients:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 regular package marshmallows, minus however many you eat
6 cups crisped rice cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
Topping Ingredients:
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Microwave margarine in bowl until melted. Mix in brown sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Fold in marshmallows until covered. Microwave until marshmallows are large and melty. Mix until smooth, microwaving more if necessary. Fold in cereal gently to avoid crushing it. When mixture is evenly coated, mix in chocolate chips. They will likely melt a bit, but that's OK. Press into greased 9"x13" pan. Melt topping ingredients in microwave and mix until smooth. Spread onto bars. Let cool, then cut into bars.
