Triple Decker Rice Krispie Treats

Moving = do not buy groceries.

So I decided to search though the pantry and come up with something sweet for you.

Things I found: Rice Krispies, peanut butter, chocolate chips, Kraft caramels and marshmallows…

Sounds like a delicious discovery.

What I came up with were some triple decker Rice Krispie treats.  Regular Rice Krispies followed by a peanut butter marshmallow layer, caramel layer and chocolate layer.

We are settling into our new place and I will try to spend some time in the kitchen and share some new recipes with you soon!

Recipe: Triple Decker Rice Krispie Treats

3 Tablespoons Butter

10 oz Bag Marshmallows

1/2 Jar Marshmallow Fluff

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

7 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal

14 oz Bag Caramels

1 1//2 Cups Peanut Butter

12 oz Bag Semisweet or Dark Chocolate

Directions:

Butter a 9×13 pan.

Melt butter and marshmallows together in a greased saucepan.  Once melted add vanilla and pour over Rice Krispies in a large bowl.  You may want to grease the bowl before putting Rice Krispies in, the marshmallows tend to stick to everything!

Unwrap caramels and melt over medium heat until just melted.

While the caramel melts, combine peanut butter and fluff into a small bowl and add a tablespoon of hot water, mixing until combined.  Add more hot water until you reach a desired consistency.  Spread that over top of the Rice Krispies.

Place that in the refrigerator while caramels finish melting.  Once caramels are melted pour and spread quickly over peanut butter mixture.

Place that in the refrigerator and place chocolate into a microwave safe bowl.  Melt chocolates in 20 second intervals,  making sure to stir well each time.  Once melted, spread over top of caramels and place in refrigerator.

once chocolate is set, remove from refrigerator and let caramel come up to room temperature before slicing and serving.
NOTE: I used chunky peanut butter and you can do one of two things to make the caramel softer (which I will do next time).  Add 1/2 cup peanut butter to melted caramel or add graham cracker crumbs to the melted caramel.

You can use pretty much anything for these layers and as always, add more or less marshmallows depending on preference.
