    My fellow disers, we need your help. We are looking for a great tasting microwave cookie, bar or brownie recipe. My daughter is taking microwave foods for 4-H and she has to submit a microwave creation in the cookie, bar or brownie recipe. They gave us 5 samples to choose from or to find our own. We want something a little different. I knew we could count on you all to give us suggestions.

    I don't know how original this is, but it's delicious...

    Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie treats:

    1 cup caro syrup
    1 cup sugar
    1 c crunchy peanut butter
    5 1/2 c Rice Krispies
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup butterscotch chips

    In large bowl, mix syrup and sugar, microwave 3 minutes or until boiling. Mix in peanut butter thoroughly, then Rice Krispies. Spread into a greased 13x9 pan.

    Slowly melt choc and butterscotch chips in a separate bowl in microwave. 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, etc until chips melted and mixture is creamy. Spread over cereal and cool in fridge 30 minutes.

    I don't know if this would count, but Alton Brown had a great recipe for microwave peanut butter fudge:

    1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
    1 cup peanut butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 pound powdered sugar

    Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

    You can liven it up by adding chopped nuts (macadamias are great), chocolate chunks, crumbled banana chips, mini M&Ms, or coarsely crushed pretzels after you've stirred in all of the powdered sugar.
