  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the marshmallows, peanut butter, chocolate chips and butter. Cover and microwave on high for 2-1/2 minutes. Stir until well blended (the mixture will be lumpy). Add cereal and peanuts; stir until well coated. Spread into a greased 13-in.x 9-in. x 2-in. pan. For the frosting, combine chocolate chips, butter and milk in another microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 1-1/2 sugar and vanilla. With an electric mixer, beat frosting until smooth. Spread over the cereal mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares.

so yummy, the marshmellows melted a bit more than they should have, but they're still amazing! I put the sqaures in the fridge to harden before making/putting on the topping. This is a great e...

Soooo easy to make! The frosting is wholly unnecessary; they are plenty sweet without it. I skipped the peanuts and instead used extra rice cereal to make these go a bit further.
