Double PB Krispie Treats

I had no idea it was national peanut butter lover's day when I grabbed a teaspoon full of natural peanut butter and called it breakfast this morning but it was a good start for the day.  When I discovered what day it was, I went to my downstairs pantry and started grabbing a bunch of ingredients to make this fun bars.







Double Peanut Butter Krispie Treats

4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup peanut butter chips
6 - 1.5 oz Hershey's chocolate bars

In a large saucepan, melt butter and peanut butter.  Add in mini marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies.  Finally stir in peanut butter chips before placing mixture in a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Pat down mixture using a piece of wax paper until it's relatively level.  Place Hershey bars side by side on top and place in a warm oven for a few minutes until melted but still holding their shape.  Spread out with a spatula.  Place pan in the refrigerator or a cold place until the chocolate hardens.
