My first treat, was something I'd been thinking up for a while. NOw I didn't come out perfect so i have some tweaking to do but here it is basicly. A three layer chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge rice krispy treat.
Prepare a 9x13 pan by lining it with either wax paper or tin foil. Set asside and being layers as follows.
Layer 1- Peanut Butter Fudge ( i need to half it i think)
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup peanut butter-any kind will do
1 lb powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (i actually forgot this step and it came out fine)
Put butter and peanut butter in a microwaveable bowl or double boiler. microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Remove and stir. Place back in microwave and microwave for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in powdered sugar and vanilla extract (preferably with a wooden spoon) until mixed thoroughly. Place in an 8X8 glass dish or metal pan lined with waxed paper or foil.

NOw at this point it also says to place in fridge for 2 hours. I did not for this next reason!
Layer 2-Rice Krispies treat
Who doesn't know this recipe? But for safe keeping here it be:
3 Tbsp. butter
10 oz. (1 bag) marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
In a 3-quart saucepan, heat butter and marshmallows over medium heat until melted.
Remove from heat, and immediately stir in the cereal, using the prepared spatula.
Spread into the prepared pan. Flatten gently with the spatula. Let cool and harden completely. Cut into squares.
In this case the prepared pan is the one with peanut butter fudge in it.
Layer 3-Fudge-ridiculously easy fudge at that
16 oz. (450 g) chocolate chips
4 Tbs. (57 g) butter
14 oz. (396 g) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Throw the butter and chocolate chips into a medium metal bowl or double boiler. Pour the sweetened condensed milk on top. Fill a small pot with about an inch of water and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to simmering. Do not let top pan of double boiler or metal bowl touch water. After a few minutes over the heat, start mixing the melting chocolate together with the melting butter. Now you can constantly stir it like I do OR you can let it heat then mix alternatly. Once melted remove from heat.

Pour this fudge over the rice krispy treats.
Allow to chill in fridge for at least 2 hours or until set.
Once set cut in to small squares. I emphasize small because it will be a rich treat. and TADAAA.
The above fudge recipe is so stinkin easy and simply I used it for two of the other treats.
Peanut butter Chocolate Fudge Rice Krispy thingies!
4 tbsp butter or maragrine
12 oz bag semi sweet chips
10 oz bag of peanut butter chips
1 can condensed milk
Approx 4-5 cups rice crispies
1/2 c. walnuts
Place rice kripsies in medium bowl and set aside. Put butter, chips, and milk into bowl over water or double boiler. Melt, stir, blah blah. Spread walnuts onto bottom of a foil lined 9 x 13 baking dish. or if you want thinker bars 9x9. Pour 3/4 of melted fudge into pan, spread out evenly. Take other fourth of fudge and pour it over rice cripies. Stir and mix until all cereal is covered. Spread out fudgey cripies over still warm and melted fudge in pan. Chill, cut, enjoy. Kinda tastes like a candy bar.
