Peanut Butter Cookie Crunch Bars


1 (17.5 oz) package peanut butter cookie mix (such as Betty Crocker)

3 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Tbsp water

4 cups mini marshmallows

Crispy Topping:

1/4 c mini marshmallows

1 1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 c creamy peanut butter

1/2 c chunky peanut butter

1 Tbsp butter

1/4 c oats

1 1/2 cup Crisp Rice Cereal



Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 13x9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine cookie mix, oil and water until a soft dough forms. Press dough onto bottom of pan. Bake for 14-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Remove from oven and cover cookie base evenly with marshmallows. Return to oven for 5 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly toasted.

Meanwhile, melt marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butters, and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix constantly until melted. Stir in oats and rice krispy cereal. Allow to cool slightly.

Spread mixture over marshmallow layer evenly. The mixture may be a little thick so spread as well as you can. With a knife, run the marshmallow layer and chocolate layer to create a marble.

Allow to cool before cutting.
