Crispy Chocolate Squares

A slight deviation from my norm, these bars don’t require baking. Reading through the recipe, I thought these sounded like a sure Quinn-pleaser. Chocolate, peanut butter, nuts, marshmallows, Rice Krispies… actually it sounded pretty good to me, too.

My version of these bars have pecans, since I realized too late that I had no peanuts. Also, I omitted the frosting because I thought they were just fine without it.

These were a breeze to make. Essentially, melt everything in the microwave, stir, spread in pan, refrigerate, and eat. They’re not going to be winning any baking awards any time soon, but they’re a good thing to whip up for a quick treat.
