When the brownies are almost done baking, make the rice krispy mixture.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter. When it’s melted remove it from the stove and add the vanilla and mix well. Add the Krispy rice cereal and mix well.

 

Immediately pour on top of the brownies. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Serve and enjoy. It will make 35 brownies – so there are plenty to share! 

These are so good and so sweet – so be sure to share them with your neighbors and kids’ teachers. 

You can also change up this recipe and replace the peanut butter cups for another candy bar. This is a great recipe to keep handy for that extra Halloween candy.
