FYI: This could kill you. Very awesome. And it’s not really cake..but I thought that sounded more fun than ‘bars’.

Made these for a weekend away at the cabin and they were gobbled up like a boy at an all girl’s school. (Lame..i know..but i tried.)

3 parts to this – recipe from JoytheBaker.com – originally called ‘ Peanut Butter Fudge Snacks’ or something boring like that:)

Rice Krispies

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • – OR –
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal (or any puffed rice cereal)

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.2. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Make Peanut Butter Fudge.

I split the recipe up among a few little giveaway containers and one rectangle pan.

Peanut Butter Fudge

recipe from Alton Brown

  • 1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pound powdered sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour over the Rice Krispy treats in the pan and spread evenly. Let cool in the fridge while you make the Chocolate Fudge.

Easy Chocolate Fudge

  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Combine butter, milk, sugar, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows, chocolate, and vanilla,. Beat for about 1 minute, or until marshmallows melt and mixture is thoroughly combined. Pour over peanut butter fudge, spread evenly and place in the fridge to harden and cool. EAT!!!

I put mine in cute little pans so I could give them out. They are RICH so a tiny piece will go a LONG way:)

It also is much more fun to make when you have a dear little nephew hanging out in the kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • Melting Chocolate (milk or dark)
  • Anything you want
  1. Melt chocolate (I do this in a glass dish in the microwave)
  2. Add anything you like (nuts, mini marshmallows, crushed candy, pretzels); mix well
  3. Dump mixture onto a sheet of wax paper (add sprinkles on top if you wish) and wait for it to get hard
  4. Break into pieces

So much easier than making chocolate covered things. Not as fancy, but still delicious!
