1 Line a 30cm x  18cm baking tin with parchment paper.
2 Place 1 cup of chocolate chips and 3 tbsp of peanut butter in a heatproof bowl.
3 Microwave for 60 seconds and stir until smooth and combined. Microwave for few more seconds if needed.
4 Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Place the pan in freezer for 2 to 3 minutes or until hardened.
5 Meanwhile, in a clean bowl, place the marshmallow fluff, ¼ cup peanut butter and icing sugar. With a wooden spoon or spatula stir until it forms a soft dough. Remove the dough from bowl and press with your fingers on top of the chocolate layer.

8 Refrigerate for 5 minutes until set.

10 Place the pan in the fridge for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has set. Cut into bars with a sharp knife.
