One of my most fondest memories as a teenager was of making rice krispie treats with marshamallows. This version is amazing and definitely satiates my peanut butter and chocolate cravings.

Love that there are only 5 ingredients going into this thing and that it comes together in about 5 minutes. Just gotta wait for it to set in the freezer. Major tip, wait for it to defrost before slicing into it; it will be rock hard.
