Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge Krispy Treats

Phew, I just returned from Korea, and as expected, I’m suffering from jet lag 😦  I didn’t spot nearly as many bakeries or patisseries in Korea as I have in other Asian countries (especially Taiwan, where there’s a bakery on every corner), but at least I did get to snag a bite of Beard Papa’s before I left 🙂

Anyway, having been away from an oven for so long, I decided to make it up by making something extremely rich and decadent.  So when I laid eyes on a recipe for chocolate & peanut butter fudge rice krispy treats, I jumped to the occasion!  As Joy the Baker states in her blog, “these bars are so rich, so over the top” that they’re almost too much… even for me.  Oh well, exactly what I wanted!

Strangely, with all the time I spend making sweets, I never bothered to make rice krispy treats before.  I don’t know why… they’re easy to make and delicious to eat!  But I guess I considered it TOO easy… without considering to add layers of peanut butter and chocolate fudge 🙂  This recipe is simple, quick (no actual baking involved) and probably serves 30 even though it comes in a 9×13 dish.  Even though these are delicious, even I couldn’t eat more than a small piece before feeling guilty…

P.S.  I dedicate this post to Sandra, whose birthday I was not able to celebrate with a cake because I was flying over the ocean at the time.  I’ll make it up to you some day!  Happy birthday!
