Directions

Butter an 8x8 baking dish with 1 t of the butter (insert your hand into a baggy and use that as a glove to get good coverage). Mix marshmallows, peanut butter, butter and salt and cook on medium heat until all is melted then add cereal. Spray a spoon with Pam so the contents don’t stick to it and use it to press HALF of the mix into the buttered pan. Spread half the chocolate over the mix and then repeat the 2 layers. Finally sprinkle with peanuts.
