"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave?" - Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail)

Triple Layer Rice Krispie Treats

1 stick of butter, divided
1 16 oz. bag of large marshmallows, divided
1 9 oz. box of Rice Krispies Cereal, divided
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. peanut butter

Cut the stick of butter into 4 equal pieces, each measuring 2 tablespoons. Measure the cereal out into 3 equal portions, each measuring about 3 cups. Divide the marshmallows into 3 equal portions, about 20 in each portion.

For the first layer: Melt 2 tbsp. of butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Once melted, add 20 marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and add vanilla, stir to combine. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Pour into a 13x9 pan. Using one section of the butter, smear some on your finger tips and press the first layer into the pan.

For the second layer: Follow the above instructions, but melt the chocolate chips before adding the cereal instead of the vanilla. Buttering your fingers again, press on top of the first layer.

For the third layer: Follow the above instructions, but stir the peanut butter in this time instead of adding the vanilla or chocolate chips. Buttering your fingers again, press on top of the second layer.

Allow to cool for at least 1 hour and then cut into squares and serve. Makes 24 medium treats.
