Crack Brownies

Have you ever tried crack? Yeah, me either. After eating these brownies, though, I feel like I would probably be less addicted to crack. I mean, how can that not be the case with brownies, peanuts, marshmallows, Reese's peanut butter cups, chocolate, peanut butter and Rice Krispies all present in a single bite?! This recipe comes from my very good Heather, and I am very grateful that she shared it!

Prepare 1 package of brownie mix according to the package directions. Coat a 9x13 baking dish and bake in the oven, also according to package directions (20-25 minutes).

While the brownies are baking, chop enough Reese's peanut butter cups (I used minis) to make 1 cup. Feed extras to hungry children running by, or pop them into your own mouth.

Add on top of the baked brownies:

1/2 cup salted peanuts

1 cup Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped

2 cups miniature marshmallows

Return to the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for an additional 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows begin to puff and brown and the chocolate begins to melt.

In a medium bowl, combine:

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

Microwave on high for 1 minute and stir until melted and creamy. 

Add 2 cups of Rice Krispies cereal and stir until completely coated with the chocolate-peanut butter mixture.

Pour mixture evenly over the brownies.

Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours before serving. 

Cut into squares, and prepare to feel like you might need addiction counseling.

You think I'm kidding!
