How to make chocolate peanut butter rice crispy treats

Melt Lily’s Sweets dark chocolate baking bars.
Pour melted chocolate over rice crisp layer and refrigerate to set.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
Use natural smooth peanut butter. The only ingredient should be peanuts (and maybe salt). Natural peanut butter doesn’t contain stabilizers, so it is drippy and liquidy enough to evenly coat the rice crisps.
Line your baking pan with parchment paper. You’ll be able to easily remove the rice crispy treats.
Melt chocolate using a double boiler. Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate to avoid burning. If you don’t have a double boiler, use this DIY method:
Fill a saucepan about 1/4 full with water.
Place a glass or metal mixing bowl over the saucepan. Make sure the bowl is not touching the water.
Add chocolate to the bowl.
Bring water to a boil, and stir chocolate occasionally until melted.
