Sweet Marie Bars

My family enjoys these sweet bars for a treat.  They are quick and easy to make in the microwave.  Enjoy!

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 cups Rice Krispies

2/3 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  1. In a microwave safe bowl place peanut butter, sugar, corn syrup and butter.  Heat in microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.
  2. Remove from microwave and add Rice Krispies.
  3. Press into a greased 8- or 9-inch square pan.
  4. For icing, melt chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl (I use a glass measuring cup) for about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 20-30 second interval until mixture is melted.  Be careful as chocolate burns easily in the microwave! 
  5. Spread chocolate over bars and let cool in the refrigerator until set.
