These are Brownies taken to another level!
Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the box of Brownie Mix.
1 Box of your favorite Brownie Mix, prepared according to the directions on the box. (I always use Ghirardelli.)
1 - 9" X 9" Baking Pan lined with Foil cut 2" extending of all 4 sides. I cut two separate pieces, the size of the interior of the pan. It's easier to release.
1/2 C Chopped Roasted Peanuts
12 Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups, chopped.
2 C Dark Chocolate Chips
1 TBS Butter
1 1/4 C Creamy Peanut Butter
2 C Rice Krispies Cereal
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Salt
Prepare the Brownie Mix.
Bake according to the directions on the box, but remove them 5 minutes before they are finished baking.
Evenly distribute the Reese's Cups over the Batter.
Sprinkle evenly with Peanuts.
Return the pan to continue baking for the last 5 minutes.
Remove the pan to a rack and smooth the top with an offset spatula.
Allow to cool completely on the rack.
In a Large Glass Heatproof Bowl for a Microwave:
Heat for 30 seconds in a Microwave, stir and return to continue heating until melted and creamy smooth.
Gently stir to combine well with a Silicone Spatula.
Spread evenly over the Peanut Butter layer.
Refrigerate for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until completely set.
Lift the Brownies out of the Pan using the Foil.
Transfer to a Cutting Board and cut into squares or bars.
Peace in the Kitchen!
