TodGru's chocolate chip peanut butter rice krispie marshmallow trail bar

TodGru's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Trail Bar

Ingredients

Fluid:

1/4 cup honey 258
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips  240
1/2 cup butter (one stick)  800
10  oz  minature marshmallows 1000
1   cup peanuts (ground)  854
1   tsp vanilla

Dry:

1/2 tsp salt
1   cup quick oats	166
4   cup kellog rice krispies  416

TOTAL CALORIE COUNT: 3734
each per dozen: 311

Procedure

  1. In a 4 quart pan on low heat, melt butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, honey and peanut butter.
  2. Use the butter stick paper to grease 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  3. Add vanilla and salt when all is melted.
  4. 1/4 cup at a time, slowly and thoroughly mix in dry ingredients.
  5. Spread as evenly as possible in casserole dish.
  6. Let it all cool to room temp, then store covered in the fridge.

BONUS:

On the trail, these treats hold up OK. I keep them wrapped securly in a plastic bag, deep in my pack.

At home, add more honey or chocolate chips for easier mixing of the dry ingredients.

Drink plenty of water with these gooey treats.

I can't believe you did a recipe as a gist. Bars are awesome!

Note: too much chocolate chip, over 3/4 cup, will cause the trailbars to be too chocolaty. They might melt, causing a mess when on the trail. Off trail, the added chocolate is great!
