Briana~ these look amazing! Any thoughts on how they would taste if I obmitted the peanut butter and peanuts? I have a child that is allergic to all nuts. Thanks!!! Looks wonderful!

Char -
I think it would still be really good...it would just taste more like the Smores Bars that I've posted earlier: http://sweetpeasandbb.blogspot.com/2011/03/smores-bars.html

The only thing is that your peanut butter is what sticks the rice crispies together. Perhaps you could do it similar to a rice crispie treat recipe for the middle layer and then add the candy corn layer on the top of that. That sounds pretty tasty actually! =)

Hope you're able to use this recipe and have a great week!
