Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cereal Bars

A perfect crispy, chewy, peanut-buttery and chocolate treat that is a family favourite of ours. Try them for an end of summer bbq or after-school snack!


  • 10  1/2 cups of puffed rice cereal
  • 10 oz (284g) mini marshmallows – approximately 8 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup light peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1  1/2 cups of semisweet or milk chocolate chips


  1. Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper (so you can easily pull out the bars once cooled), and set aside.
  2. Place rice cereal in a large bowl (with enough room to stir once you add the melted marshmallow mixture – I use my largest stainless steel prep bowl).
  3. Combine marshmallows, butter, peanut butter and corn syrup in a large non-stick pan (I use my wok!) and cook over medium heat stirring until melted and smooth.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into cereal.
  5. Combine cereal with marshmallow mixture, pouring in chocolate chips as you mix.
  6. Spread into your 9 x 13 pan and press in firmly and evenly.
  7. Let the bars cool, and then cut into squares (makes 32 squares).

Note: You can also halve the recipe and make in an 8 x 8 pan which will yield approximately 16 squares.
