Rice Krispys with a twist

I don't think I have personally ever made Rice Krispy treats. I may have been in the kitchen once when my mom made them. Anthony is in charge of his work party this year. The caterers brought some kind of Rice Krispy treat that he enjoyed. It involved a peanut butter layer and mini marshmallows.

So.

We made the regular rice krispys treat recipe
www.ricekrispies.com
Look for the ORIGINAL recipe. There are other variations.

3 tablespoons butter
10 ounces marshmallow
6 cups cereal

Melt the butter, then add the marshmallows and melt them too, last you add the cereal and smoosh it all into a pan.

Next we took 1 cup corn syrup and boiled it (it boils FAST)
Then added 1 cup peanut butter to the hot syrup and stirred it until smooth

We spooned the peanut butter mixture over the rice krispy treats

Lastly we sprinkled peanuts, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows over the wet peanut butter layer.

Now it is sitting in the fridge.
I have no idea if this is like the dessert DH had but he seems satisfied with it.
