Double Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Bars
Ahhhhh…these here chewy and crispy chocolate bars take me right back to the farm. Double Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Bars were one of my favorite childhood treats, and an especially wonderful find in the kitchen when the school day was done. Paired with a tall glass of cold milk, they were the perfect welcome home.
Today I’m excited to be featured by my friend Kim

Double Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Bars
Double Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Bars were one of my favorite childhood treats.
- 1/2 c. unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 T. cocoa
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 c. mini marshmallows
- 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 c. creamy peanut butter
- 1.5 c. Rice Krispies cereal
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9'' x 13'' pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and stir to combine. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes. Do not over bake. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over the top and bake 3 minutes longer. Cool completely on a rack.
- Once pan is cool, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter over low heat, stirring to combine. Pour in the Rice Krispies cereal and spread mixture evenly over the marshmallow layer.
- Once set, cut into bars. They will cut easier if the top layer is allowed time to set up, especially if they are chilled in the refrigerator a bit.
This is a favorite childhood treat from Mom’s recipe box, a recipe she got from Dinah K. after a church potluck.

These totally take me back to being a kid. My Mom used to make a version of them for me often — they were my favorite! I just loved the peanut butter/chocolate crispy layer. She hasn’t made them in years and I think I would have forgotten about them had I not seen your lovely picture. Thanks for the reminder! :)
These look like a sweet dream!! I love anything with marshmallow. Planning to try them for Easter goodies and can’t wait.

I LOVE these. I’ve been making them for YEARS. I am pretty sure I ate an entire pan all to myself once haha. I got the recipe from one of my Mom’s cookbooks back when I stilled lived at home.
I love these, Brenda. I’ve featured them in this week’s Mingle Monday Highlights. Thanks so much for sharing them!

They remind me of those star crunch little debbie things, remember those? Chocolate crispies with caramel in the middle? Yum!
Oh Goodness! My grand-daughter is coming this week during her March Break. We are going to make these for her to take back home! (I may just have to keep a square or two…you know for taste-testing purposes only :)
