Description

If you love Reese’s Puffs cereal, you will enjoy these easy 6 ingredient no bake treats! 


Ingredients

Reese’s Puffs Layer

  • 1/4 cup (4 Tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 10.5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
  • 6 and 1/2 cups Reese’s Puffs cereal

Chocolate Fudge Layer

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cubed
  • optional: 1-1 and 1/2 cups Reese’s Pieces

Instructions

  1. Spray an 11×7 (or 9×9) baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, remove pan from heat. Stir in the Reese’s Puffs until they are completely coated with the marshmallow. Press into prepared baking pan. I used a spatula sprayed with nonstick spray to make the sticky cereal mixture easier to press down.
  3. Make the chocolate fudge layer by microwaving the chocolate chips and cubed butter for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until chocolate can be stirred smooth. Once completely melted smooth, spread chocolate on top of Reese’s Puffs treats. If topping with Reese’s Pieces, press them lightly into the fudge frosting so they stick.
  4. Chill bars for at least 1 hour so the chocolate can set before cutting into squares. Store covered in the refrigerator during hot months to avoid the chocolate topping from melting.

  1. What a yummy twist on rice krispie treats! And super decadent with the chocolate frosting on top. This is the best way to get your treats without sweltering over a hot oven! And they look so summery too.

  2. Baking Serendipity says:

    These might be one of my favorite no-bake desserts yet! I love Reese Puffs cereal, and the Reese Pieces on top are the perfect final touch!

  3. Try adding some carmel ice cream topping to the chocolate. Oh so yummy. Used to make rice krispie bars adding pb to the bars and carmel to the melted choc chips for frosting. Frosted flakes are another option. Didn’t have some of these cereals when I was a kid. In az we are now pushing 110+, so I invested in a convection oven microwave. Small, but the heat goes out the vent instead of into the space.

    1. YUM! The caramel topping idea sounds delicious.

  4. Oh my, I would eat the whole pan!! These would become my addiction! 🙂

  5. I would love to win that beautiful cake plate! I also like to collect those as baking is my favorite thing to do!!! Fingers crossed!! 😉

  6. I tried this recipe for the first time after looking for the perfect reeses’ cereal bar recipe, and I definitely found it. I love this recipe and I’ll be making it again!

    1. So happy you liked these bars Nikki! You’re reminding me how much I love them too- gotta make them again soon!

  7. I’ve heard of Cocoa Puffs as well, will they work too?
