Chocolate Peanut Butter Double Layer Crisp Rice Treats

I know, the title is a mouthful, but then again so are these bars! While perusing the local specialty food market here in town I saw a giant bin of assorted ‘gourmet’ crisp rice treat.  Now, what you may not know about me is I am a complete sucker for any kind of crisp rice treat.  I rarely make them because around me they are dangerous.  I may have, and I can neither confirm nor deny this, eaten an entire pan all by...
