'Too Good' Payday Bars!

So..just aimlessly looking on Pinterest, I found Homemade PayDay Bars. Man, they looked SO good..but sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter chips..didn't have those on hand, so I made a quick, too good version, of PayDay bars! These sweet and salty bars are addictive and taste just like the real thing! The coconut oil makes them crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, so yummy!

First put Two Tablespoons of Coconut Oil in a large pot on low heat. 

Now, add one bag of Mini Marshmallows! (Not healthy, but hey. Trust me these are really good!) 

Stir until the marshmallows become smoothhhh. 

Take off the heat and add: 1 1/2 cups of peanuts, 1 tablespoon of Pb2 or your favorite peanut butter, and 3 cups of Rice Krispy or Chex Cereal! (Basically like sweet and salty Rice Krispy Treats!) 

Stir gently until well combined. 
Now press into prepared baking dish (parchment paper!) and sprinkle entire treat with salt! 

Try these out and tell me what you think!

Here's the full recipe:
