Stir in up to 1 cup of dark chocolate peanut butter (again, if you can't find dark chocolate, regular will do), 1-1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix well. Add in 8 cups of Rice Krispies, about one cup at a time, and stir until they are evenly coated.

Remove the pot from the heat and stir in your chopped up dark chocolate Reese's peanut butter cups and one cup of dark chocolate chips (and if you can't find dark chocolate... you guessed it... use regular).

Now dump your ooey gooey mixture into your 9 x 13 pan. Spread as evenly as possible, continually pressing on the surface until it is flat.
