Memorial Day: Last Minute BBQ Dessert

Today is a kick back and barbecue day.  A hooray we have no work or school day.  A remember WHY we have no work or school day.

We have so much to remember and be thankful for.  I wish I could bring an entire tray of these crispy squares to every soldier and their family. 

Just to say thank you.  Because you rock. 

This recipe is a last minute, "we have to bring something!" dessert.  It's an easy twist on crispy squares and it doesn't require the oven.

Easy and no oven.  I love the good ole' win-win.   

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Crispy Squares

3 tble butter or margarine
1 10oz bag mini (or large) marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Grease and set aside 9x13 inch baking dish.

Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat.  Once melted add marshmallows.

Stir until smooth.  Remove from heat and add crispy rice and peanut butter.  Stir until crispy rice is well coated in peanut butter and marshmallow. 

Add half chocolate chips and stir in, set aside other half.  Press crispy rice mixture firmly into pan using flat, greased spatula. 

Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over top.  Press firmly to set.

I refrigerate until firm and then cut and serve.  If you are blessed to have central air and you are organized enough to make ahead and not last minute, refrigeration is optional.

Have a fabulous Memorial Day!
