In a skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Add marshmallows and melt. Remove from heat; add cereal and stir until well coated. Press mixture evenly and firmly into a buttered 8˝ (20 cm) square pan.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Spread a thin layer of chocolate over mixture in the pan (about half the chocolate). Let cool to harden chocolate. Refrigerate if necessary.

Meanwhile, with a food processor, crush ½ cup (125 mL) peanuts with the icing sugar. Add Cottage Cheese and the remaining cooled, melted chocolate. Process until smooth.

Spread cheese mixture over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts, a little cocoa and icing sugar. Cut into squares and serve.
