  1. Heat marshmallows, butter and Nutella in glass bowl in microwave.  Stir every thirty seconds until smooth. 
  2. Pour marshmallow mixture over rice cereal.  Stir to coat evenly.
  3. Press mixture into a greases 9" X 13" pan.
  4. For topping, combine ingredients in a glass bowl and microwave on high, stirring every 15-30 seconds until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.  Spread over pan of rice krispee treats.
  5. Chill for an hour before cutting into squares.

  4. This looks great! It reminds me of Mars Bar Squares, except instead of the nutella, you melt mars bars(I believe 4)

  5. With a cup and a half of Nutella, it should be very good and a little pricey for me!
