Introducing the aptly named Crack Brownies. You will NOT want to stop eating these once you start. Consider that your warning.
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.
