Butter a 9×13-inch pan and set aside
Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal and mix well so the cereal is coated. Pour into the prepared pan and use a buttered piece of wax paper to press evenly into pan. Make sure it is buttered or it will just stick on the wax paper.
In the microwave or saucepan, melt the peanut butter until thin, about 1 minute in a bigger bowl. Gently stir in the quartered peanut butter cups into the peanut butter and then pour over the treats. Using a spatula, gently spread the peanut butter mixture evenly across the top.
Again in the microwave or saucepan, melt the chocolate chips 15 second at a time in the microwave so you do not overheat it. Using a spatula, drizzle the melted chocolate across the top. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container.
