Begin by gently warming the creamy peanut butter and honey in a saucepan, stirring until well combined.
Remove the mixture from heat and stir in vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavors.
In a separate bowl, mix rolled oats and rice cereal. Pour the warm peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients and fold them together.
Press the mixture firmly into a lined or greased baking pan to create an even layer.
Place the pan in the refrigerator to allow the bars to set and firm up.
For an extra touch of decadence, melt chocolate chips and drizzle them over the chilled Peanut Butter Crunch Bars.
Once the bars are fully chilled and set, cut them into squares or bars. They're now ready to be served and enjoyed
