Crazy name for brownies, huh? These brownies have been making the rounds on food blogs and I thought New Year’s Eve would be the perfect occasion to make these. I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t like chocolate. It gives me headaches and makes me feel blah, so I would not be a good judge of these brownies. But, I can say that everyone who had one during New Year’s Eve really enjoyed them. They are **extremely** rich so you will get a lot of serving out of one batch.
1 batch box-mix brownies
1 C salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt)
2 C chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
1 1/2 C milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 T butter
1 1/2 C Rice Krispies Cereal
Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Remove and top with peanuts and peanut butter cups, and bake for 4-6 minutes more.
While they are finishing baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Stir in cereal. Remove brownies from oven and evenly pour chocolate mixture over top.
Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
