Yes, these ARE what you think they are. Rice Krispy Treats, topped with a layer of peanut butter fudge, topped with a layer of chocolate fudge. Oh, baby. It’s practically too much to wrap your mind around, right??
This recipe comes via one of my favorite websites for sinfully sweet stuff, Joy The Baker, and she credits them back to a combination of the classic Rice Krispy Treat plus a peanut butter fudge recipe from Alton Brown, plus a standard recipe for chocolate fudge. As you can see, it takes a village to make something so incredibly, decadently good. They are really, really easy to make — the hardest part, quite honestly, is waiting in between stages for the various layers to cool.
When you make these (because let’s be honest, you KNOW you are going to make these), here are a few pieces of advice. Cut them into SMALL pieces. I cut mine into one inch squares. Eating a piece bigger than one inch could make all your teeth fall out at once. Second, I store mine in the fridge. There is definitely enough sugar in these to keep them perfectly fine stored on the kitchen counter, but I liked the harder consistency of the cold fudge. That’s just me, though. Fudge consistency is a very personal decision, and I leave that up to you.
I think that is all I have to say about these, except that you have to make them as soon as humanly possible. You only go around once.
