  • You could use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like – dark chocolate, milk chocolate, semisweet chocolate. Your call.
  • Line the bottom of the baking pan with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
  • To ensure these treats are gluten-free, check the packages you buy. But rice cereals are typically gluten-free.
  • Store the treats in an airtight container.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter, marshmallows and peanut butter together in a large pot over low heat, stirring often. 
  2. When melted, turn off the heat and stir in the cereal.
  3. Press the mixture into a buttered 13x9-inch baking pan with buttered hands.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 45 to 90 seconds. Stir in the vegetable oil. Pour the chocolate over the top of the cereal. Let the bars sit at room temperature to harden before cutting into squares.
