A chocolate cake bottom topped with a chocolate, peanut butter rice cereal topping, and a gooey marshmallow filling. Prep time includes making the peanut butter topping. this can also be made successfully in a 13x9-inch baking pan, in fact I make it all the time in that size pan, and the rice cereal/peanut butter mixture can be doubled if desired.
