  • 1/3 c peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2nd Layer: Peanut Butter Fudge
  • ½ c non-dairy butter, softenend
  • ½ c smooth peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ c powdered sugar
  • 1 ¼ c mini peanut butter cups (vegan option - chopped Justin's dark chocolate PB cups)
  • 3rd Layer: Cereal
  • 3 c Crispy Rice cereal
  • 1/2 of a 10 oz bag of vegan marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy butter, softened
  • 1/3 c peanut butter (optional)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 4th Layer: Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache
  • 1 c + 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 2 c chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Prep a 9 X 13 pan, or something close to that, by greasing the bottom and sides with butter or a butter spray.

  2. 1st Layer: Measure out your 3 cups rice cereal and set aside. In a large microwave safe bowl, put in your ¾ cup marshmallows, butter, peanut butter and vanilla. Melt in the microwave for around 45 seconds, take out…stir…put back in for a few more seconds. Do this until the mixture is smooth. Stir in your rice cereal and dump into pan. Spread it out evenly and press firmly.

  3. Peanut Butter Fudge: Measure out powdered sugar and set aside. On the stovetop (or microwave) melt butter and peanut butter until smooth. Remove from heat, add powdered sugar and vanilla and stir until smooth. Dump over 1st layer of cereal and spread evenly. Spread out your mini peanut butter cups (Reese’s Pieces would work too) and gently press into the fudge.

  4. Let the fudge set for a few minutes before you add the next layer of cereal. I popped my pan into the freezer for a few minutes.

  5. 3rd Layer: Prepare this layer as you did the first. Only add the peanut butter if you really want a strong peanut butter flavor, which I did J Then pour oven the fudge and spread it evenly and press firmly. Make sure you try to cover up all the peanut butter cups, so that the next layer doesn’t hit the fudge.

  6. 4th Layer: On the stovetop, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips until smooth. Stir constantly to avoid the chocolate from burning. Let cool for a few minutes, the pour evenly over the cereal layer and gently shake pan to evenly distribute chocolate.

  7. Carefully cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer or fridge to firm. Cut into bars and enjoy death by chocolate and peanut butter!
