A classic no-bake dessert taken to the next level, with marshmallow krispies on the bottom, milk chocolate peanut butter in the middle, and a bittersweet chocolate on top.
4cupspuffed rice cereal
1/2cupcreamy peanut butter
3ozbittersweet chocolateabout a 1/2 cup, measured
In a wide saucepan or skillet, melt 4 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add the mini marshmallows, and stir for about 5 minutes, until the marshmallows have completely melted. Stir in the puffed rice cereal, and stir to coat.
Scrape the marshmallow cereal out into an 8x8 square pan, and press it down with a spatula to really compact the marshmallow squares. Let that cool while you start on the peanut butter chocolate layer.
Melt the milk chocolate and peanut butter in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30-second intervals, then spread the mixture evenly over the top of the marshmallow cereal. Refrigerate for about 2 hours until firm to the touch.
For the final layer, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and the bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Spread the mixture over the milk chocolate peanut butter layer, and refrigerate for another half hour or so, until firm to the touch. Cut into squares and enjoy!
