If you don't want the cake type bottom layer, then use your favorite brownie recipe. This was a hit at bowling today. This is easy to assemble and has great results. We are adding this to our recipe collection.

Phenominal! The bottom was a bit spongy and very chocolaty, the top was a rice krispy treat that was oh so yummy with the peanut butter! I am a teacher and made this for the teachers in the school...it was devoured! Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe! xo LA :-)
