These are a little bit messy to make, but totally worth it!
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
2 sticks (8oz.) plus 1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 16oz jar creamy peanut butter
3 c rice krispies cereal
1/4 tsp salt
3 c powdered sugar
Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper or foil. In a medium saucepan, melt half of the chocolate and 1 tbsp butter over low heat. Remove from the heat; stir in 1 c peanut butter and 2 c cereal. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan; refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Wash out the saucepan.
In the saucepan, combine the remaining 2 sticks butter and the salt; melt over medium heat, stirring. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining peanut butter and the powdered sugar. Spread half of the peanut butter mixture over the cereal layer. Top with the remaining 1 c cereal.
In a small bowl, microwave the remaining chocolate until melted. Stir into the remaining peanut butter mixture. Spread evenly on the cereal-topped peanut butter layer; refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Cut into 16 pieces.
