3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bag (10 ounces) marshmallows
¼ cup smooth natural peanut butter
3 cups graham cereal, lightly crushed
1 sleeve of graham crackers (9 sheets), lightly crushed
1 cup semisweet chocolate bits
½ cup lightly salted peanuts
Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a large saucepan over medium-low, heat the butter, marshmallows and peanut butter. Stir until completely melted and smooth.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the graham cereal and graham crackers. Stir to coat. Using buttered fingers, press the mixture into the prepared pan. Set aside.
In a microwave-safe dish, melt the chocolate bits by heating in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Spread the melted chocolate over the bars and sprinkle with the peanuts. Allow to cool and then cut into bars.
