variations on a theme: brownies - round 2

Oh my goodness...these brownies!!  I don't have words.  My love for peanut butter and chocolate is obviously well documented, and these just take it to the next level. 

Let's go over this for a minute. A layer of brownies, a layer of chopped reese's peanut butter cups and roasted peanuts, and a layer of peanut butter- chocolate rice crispies. One word - heaven.

Below...the melted peanut butter and chocolate before adding rice crispies.  So, so good!

These were definitely enjoyed by all who had the pleasure of being at my friend's game night.  I will definitely make these again.  I think they may top the list of my favourite peanut butter chocolate concotions and they're too easy!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie Bars

1 batch brownies (boxed mix or this brownie recipe)
1/2 cup salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt)
1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

1. Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13 pan. Remove and top with peanuts and peanut butter cups, and bake for 4 minutes more.
2. 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.
3. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.


  1. these look sooo good. I just headed over here for that cookie pie recipe (for a second time), and to my surprise something else wonderful!

  2. OMG. I ate so many of these! When you left that giant brick behind at my place I was in heaven! I had the most delicious breakfast of my life! Not to mention that my roommates were also in love with these freaking delicious masterpieces!
