Fancy Brownies


I have learned over the years that making a good dessert does not always correlate with how much sugary sweetness or fat it has.

However, these brownies do not reflect that lesson. Instead, they taste like a candy bar glued to a fudgy brownie. I suspect these would be a big hit with children.

This is a tough week school-wise for Pat, since he has all his projects due and exams are coming up, so I wanted to do something sweet for him – pun intended? maybe (:  I wanted to make something other than the usual cookies, and I had bookmarked this recipe awhile ago.

adapted from how sweet it is and Juenessa


For the brownies

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cup sugar

2 teaspoon vanilla

4 large eggs

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

For the topping

1 cup chopped peanut butter cups

1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1 1/2 cup peanut butter *I used chunky so the topping would have more texture

1/2 tablespoon butter

1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, mix the oil and sugar together. Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing until blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa, and salt.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl, stirring until combined.

Pour into a greased (very important!) 9 x 13 pan and place into the oven. Cook for about 25 minutes, or until the brownies are almost done.

Remove and top with peanut butter cups, and bake for 4-6 minutes more.

In a medium bowl, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter, stirring until it is a smooth, creamy chocolate sauce. Stir in cereal.

Evenly pour the chocolate mixture over the top of the brownies, and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
