¾cupsmooth peanut butter
2 ½cupssemisweet chocolate chips
In a large sauce pot on medium-low heat, melt the butter with the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir in the salt.
Once the peanut butter mixture is melty and combined, stir in the marshmallows until they are melted and only a few little clumps remain.
To the PB marshmallow mixture, fold in the Rice Krispies until just combined and sticky.
Grease and line an 8x8 pan/dish and transfer the Rice Krispies treats to it. Gently press into an even layer, without pressing too hard.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring after each. You should only need 1:30 total, with a good stir at the end - the residual heat will melt the rest of the chocolate.
Pour the chocolate over the treats and either set aside at room temp or place in the fridge until set. Fridge will take about an hour, room-temp will take a few hours.
