  • 1 18 oz box your favorite brownie mix with chocolate chips 13 x 9-inch size
  • 16 single Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups extra chunky peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
  • water, oil and eggs needed to make brownies


  • Prepare the brownies according to the directions and bake for about 5 minutes less than the recipe states. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top with chopped peanut butter cups. Return to the oven and bake for 5 additional minutes.
  • While they are baking, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in the cereal, coat well. Remove the brownies from the oven and pour the chocolate and peanut butter mixture over top. Spread to cover evenly. Refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
