Marshmallow Crunch Brownies

How do you make a brownie better? You add peanut butter, of course. And, if you want to make it even better, you add rice krispies and marshmallows. What you get is brownie heaven. I remember my grandma making something similar once or twice when I was younger, and really loved them, so when I found them on a blog I read frequently, I was super excited. You must make these now.

Recipe by Peabody, modified

INGREDIENTS

Brownies
1 cup butter, melted (no substitutes)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp vanilla

Topping
7 oz mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 TBSP butter
1 1/2 - 2 cups rice krispies

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together all brownie ingredients. Pour into 9 x 13 pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until just done.

Remove brownies from the oven and sprinkle with the mini marshmallows. Immediately return to the oven and bake for another 3 minutes. Remove immediately.

While the brownies are in the oven, mix together the topping by doing the following:

Place the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly, until melted. Remove from heat, add the rice krispies, and stir. Let cool for about 3 minutes and then spread over the brownies. Allow to cool completely and then chill. Serve cold.

These look like a dream! Peanut butter AND marshmallow. I don't think you could get better than that even if you tried. Bookmarked!

I am a firm believer that peanut better can make anything better. Add the marshmallows and brownies and I am in dessert heaven. Thanks for the recipe, the next time I make brownies I will give these a try.
