CAN YOU MELT Chocolate IN THE MICROWAVE?
You can definitely melt white chocolate in the microwave. I used white chocolate wafers but white chocolate chips work great too. Put the wafers in the bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Take it out of the microwave and stir it. Repeat the process until all the chocolate is melted. Takes about 1-2 minutes.

Tips for Making Reeses Peanut Butter Cereal Bars:
- Chop your peanut butter cups before you start making the cookie bars (It goes really fast and you’re pretty much stirring the entire time.
- Have your white chocolate ready too
- Spray your baking dish with non-stick spray
- Let the cereal bars cool for about 10 minutes before you serve them or they will be hot and won’t hold up.
- Boil only for 1 minute, otherwise, your cereal bar will be too hard when it cools.
