Peanut Butter Bars

Warning - these are extremely easy to make and extremely addictive to eat! 

I found this recipe on the side of the PC Brand Honey Nut O's box.  Oh my goodness, I love them.  I probably shouldn't make them again, but I will.  They are very yummy.

3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups Honey Nut O's
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Melt the marshmallows, peanut butter and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.   Stir until smooth.  Stir in Vanilla.  Add the cereal, mix well.  Press into a 9 inch square pan.  Shake chocolate chips over top.  Allow to cool (I put mine in the freezer so the chocolate chips wouldn't melt).  Cut into bars.  I am storing this in the fridge as it is pretty warm right now.

This makes me think of PB fudge, and these are making me drool!

Will have to try these as we have 3 boxes of Honey nut Cheerios (Andrew keeps buying things that are not on the list I give him, and buys stuff I already got, we now have 2 jars of mayo and 3 bottles of Bullseye).

I used to have a thing for peanut butter cup bars, which are also VERY addicting, and easy to have kids help make.
