Sinful Three-Layer Brownies

Every once in a while it's nice to take a break and relax while enjoying a decadent dessert. However, these three-layer brownies are more than decadent...they are sin on a plate! If you love chocolate and peanut butter, then this recipe is for you! The chewy brownie base, crunchy peanut butter center and crisp cereal topping are sure to leave you friends and family wanting more!

1 box of brownie mix
¼ cup of unsalted peanuts
4-5 chopped Reeses’s peanut butter cups
1 ¾ cup peanut butter
1 ½ cup milk chocolate chips (for brownie mix)
¼ cup milk chocolate chips (for garnish)
1 ½ cups of Rice Krispies cereal
1 ½ teaspoonful of butter

Kitchen Essentials:
Stand mixer or mixing bowl and hand mixer
9x13 baking dish
Oven mitts
Measuring cups and spoons
Cutting board
Medium Pan
Wooden spoon

Chop the peanuts and peanut butter cups. Preheat the oven according to the directions on the brownie mix box.

First, make the brownies according to the directions on the box. Once the brownies are done, remove from the oven and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and Reese’s peanut butter cups. In a medium pan over low heat, melt the butter and add the milk chocolate chips. Do not increase the heat or the chocolate will burn. Stir continuously until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Add the peanut butter and continue stirring so that it incorporates with the chocolate. Lastly, add the Rice Krispies cereal and mix well. Once the mixture is complete, pour it over the Reese’s and peanut topped brownies and with a spatula, smooth out the mixture so that it is one even layer. Sprinkle some milk chocolate chips on top and place in the fridge for approximately three hours. Once the brownies are firm, cut into squares and enjoy!
