Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispy Treat!!

Okay, there are some new posting thingys (like my techy terms??), on this blogger site.  I am hoping that it all still works out okay - I am having trouble getting the text and photos to align left....sorry!  Our weekend was pretty uneventful - running kids to all sorts of activities and play dates -
wondering how/when they have developed a better social life than us but thankful that we are able to do such things for them!  And thankful for the fun friends that they have!

I made these wonderful tasting things on Saturday night.... they are simple to make but do take a little time because there are 4 layers....
Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispy Treats
1st Layer:
3 Cups Rice Krispie Cereal
1/2 of a 10oz. package of mini marshmallows
2 Tbsp. Butter
1/3 C. Peanut Butter
1.2 tsp. Vanilla
2nd Layer:
1/2 C. Butter
1/2 C. Peanut Butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Confectioners Sugar
1 1/4 C. Reese's Mini's
3rd Layer:
3 C Rice Krispies
2 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 (10oz) Bag Mini Marshmallows
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
4th Layer:
1 C. Peanut Butter
2 C. Chocolate Chips (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
DIRECTIONS:  Grease a 9x13 with butter.  In a saucepan over low-meduim heat melt the ingredients for the first layer (minus the rice krispies).  Once butter, peanut butter, marshmallows and vanilla are all melted - add rice krispies.  Stir until well combined.  Pour into pan and spread evenly and press firmly into bottom of dish.  For 2nd layer - melt butter and peanut butter until smooth.  Add powdered sugar and vanilla and stir until smooth.  Spread evenly over first layer.  Sprinkle peanut butter cups over the top and press lightly into the peanut butter mixture.  Place in fridge while making 3rd layer.  To make 3rd layer - melt butter, marshmallows and vanilla in a saucepan.  Stir in rice krispies and spread evenly over the peanut butter cups, pressing firmly.  For the 4th layer - melt peanut butter and chocolate chips.  Pour over the rice krispy layer.  Place in fridge to firm up the chocolate.


P.S. Can I just say how much Rosie just fits into our family!   She is so much fun and well, pretty much rules the roost around here!!
