cups Cocoa Puffs, slightly crushed
1 1/2
cups peanut butter, divided
1/2
cup honey or light corn syrup
6
tablespoons butter, divided
1/2
cup brown sugar
1/2
tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
3/4
cup heavy cream

Directions

  • 1 Spray an 8x11 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour Cocoa Puffs into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • 2 In a small, microwave-safe bowl, place 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of corn syrup, 3 tablespoons of butter,1/2 cup of brown sugar, and vanilla. Heat together for 1 minute, then stir. Heat an additional minute, then remove from microwave and stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

  • 4 Place the remaining peanut butter and butter into a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, stir, then spread the melted peanut butter over the cereal layer. Place pan in fridge or freezer for 5-10 minutes, while you prep the final layer.
  • 5 Place the remaining chocolate chips and the heavy cream in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30-90 seconds, then stir until smooth and creamy. Spread over the peanut butter layer.
