Rice Cereal Treats

  1. Melt butter over low heat in a large pot. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add rice cereal and stir until everything is mixed up well.
  3. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray  and press in the rice mixture (pro tip: spray your fingers with a little cooking spray so the mixture doesn’t stick to your hands!)  Let cool while you make the peanut butter fudge.

  3. Pour over the rice cereal mixture and spread it out evenly, then pop it all in the fridge while you make the chocolate fudge.

Chocolate Fudge

  1. Put butter, milk and sugar in a medium heavy pot.  Bring to a boil and stir for 5 minutes (yes, constantly.  It will be worth it.)  Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in marshmallows, chocolate, and vanilla until marshmallows melt. Pour over peanut butter fudge, spread evenly and place in the fridge to harden..
  3. Cut into 1-inch pieces (or smaller,  if you have the strength). Save some in a secret place for yourself!
