The kids thought these were great. I made each part in a pan on the stove instead of in the microwave. I didn't have peanut butter chips so I just used 1/2 cup peanut butter. This recipe is a keeper for my family.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Crunch Bars
3 cups miniature pretzels, coarsely chopped  
10 tablespoons butter, divided   
1 package (10-1/2 ounces) miniature marshmallows 
3 cups Rice Krispies  
1/2 cup light corn syrup, divided  
3/4 cup peanut butter chips  
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips 
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped
 
Reserve 1/3 cup chopped pretzels. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave 6 tablespoons butter on high for 45-60 seconds or until melted. Stir in marshmallows; cook 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until marshmallows are melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in Rice Krispies and remaining chopped pretzels. Immediately press into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan.

In another microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup corn syrup. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45-60 seconds or until butter is melted, stirring once. Add peanut butter chips; cook 30-40 seconds or until chips are melted, stirring once. Spread over cereal layer.
 

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the remaining corn syrup and remaining butter. Cook on high for 45-60 seconds or until butter is melted, stirring once. Add chocolate chips; cook 30-40 seconds longer or until chips are melted, stirring once. Spread over top.

Sprinkle with peanuts and reserved pretzels; press down gently. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or until set. Cut into bars. Store in airtight containers. Yield: 3 dozen.
