Over-the-Top Brownies

My friend Cheri dropped off a plate of these brownies at our house on Sunday. They are OMG out-of-this-world delicious. She was given the recipe by a co-worker, Amy, for publication in the upcoming Hospice of Northwest Michigan cookbook...which I'll certainly be purchasing for holiday gifts.

Not only are these brownies tasty, I like it that the recipe makes a 9x13" pan of goodies that, in turn, must be cut in very small pieces because it's so the result will feed a gang. Be sure to store them in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

1 batch brownies (boxed mix or your favorite recipe)

1/2 cup salted peanuts

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

Mix brownies according to directions. Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13" baking dish (prepared according to the directions on your brownie recipe).

Remove from oven and top with peanuts and chopped peanut butter cups. Bake an additional 4-6 minutes.

While they finish baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Stir in cereal (do not skip the cereal, it does add a lot to the recipe). Remove brownies from the oven and spread chocolate mixture over top.

Refrigerate at least two hours until set. You will probably need to keep these refrigerated.
