Ingredients

4 tbsp butter
16 oz bag of marshmallows
½ cup crunchy/salted natural peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (generic is fine)
½ cup Oregon raspberry or blackberry preserves

Preparation

Step 1
Grease or line with wax paper a 8x8x3” baking dish.

Step 2
In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt the butter and marshmallows, stirring often with a silicone spatula. When the marshmallows have melted, stir in the peanut butter and turn off the heat.

Step 3
Fold in the Rice Krispies until thoroughly combined, then press half the mixture into the greased/lined pan. (It’s okay if it’s not completely level at this step; the jam layer will be rippled and wavy, which looks kind of cool.)

Step 4
Spread the warmed preserves on top, making sure to get all the way to the edges.Press on the remaining Rice Krispies mix on top, getting it as level as possible.

Step 5
Cool for 45 minutes, then cut into squares or bars. These are best if eaten within a day or two, but they can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
