Charmel Dodd likes these No Bake Rice Krispy Roll ups-
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cup Milk Choc Chips
1/4 cup Butter
10 1/2 oz mini Marshmallows
Melt butter in a large stock pot or kettle, add marshmallows and melt them over low heat. Then add Rice Krispies. Mix well. Spread evenly into a greased 10 x 15 baking sheet. Combine Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter. Melt in a microwave safe bowl, 1 minute for each ingredient, stirring between minutes. Spread mixture on top of the Rice Krispy mixture.
Let stand till mixture sets. Don't let chocolate get too hard, then loosen the mix with a spatula. Starting on the long side, roll the pan mix up into a log. Sprinkle the roll with sprinkles, if desired.
Slice the roll and enjoy!
