The first step to making Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares was to dump some margarine and peanut butter into a sauce pan over med/low heat.

Once the margarine and peanut butter had melted together I stirred in some semi sweet chocolate chips.

When the chocolate chips had melted into the liquid in the pot I removed the sauce pan from the heat.  

I allowed the mixture to cool until I could touch the bottom of the pan.

When I was able to lay my hand flat under the pan and only feel a bit of warmth I added in some gluten free Crisp Rice Cereal.

Here is the cereal I chose to use for this step.

I stirred until all the cereal was coated with the chocolate peanut butter mixture.

Then I dumped in some mini coloured marshmallows.

I stirred in the marshmallows until they were all coated in the peanut butter chocolate mixture.

Next I lined a 9″ x 13″ pan with some wax paper.

I scraped all the contents of the sauce pan into the wax paper lined baking dish.

Then I used a large spatula to press the mixture down evenly in the baking pan.

I placed the baking pan in the fridge to let it set for a couple of hours before using the wax paper to remove the Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares from the baking pan.

Then I used a sharp knife to cut into the size of squares I wanted.  The size will be based on your personal preference and whether Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares are being served as a stand alone dessert or being added to a dessert tray where people might prefer a sampling size.

For me this recipe can yield between 24 and 40 squares depending on the serving situation.

Whether served alone, or as part of a holiday dessert tray, these squares provide a colourful, eye catching addition to brighten up any occasion.

Enjoy the many flavours and textures in this delectable dessert square!
