This recipe is flying around the internet and I wanted to try it for myself. I did change the name for use in this post because I think the name is ridiculous. Better-Than-Crack Brownies is the name. To me this implies two things; that the person has used crack and that they must have thought crack was pretty great but these brownies are even better. Anyway, they are really good brownies, I think they taste like crispy crunchy peanut butter brownies. I made them I guess because…everybody’s doing it.
1 batch brownies for 9×13 pan (boxed mix or homemade brownies)
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
1½ cup milk chocolate chips
1½ cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon butter
1½ cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 18-20 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 finish baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in microwave. Stir in Rice Krispies cereal. Remove brownies from oven and gently spread chocolate mixture over top.
Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
