Peanut Butter Cup Crunch Brownies

I recently saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought it would be a great treat to make and take to a casual get together, school outing, church or family get together. The recipe is so simple, and from the reviews of family and friends they are delicious!

Peanut Butter Cup Crunch Brownies
Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker.


1 9x13 batch of brownies from scratch or box
10 peanut butter cups chopped
1/2 cup salted peanuts
11/2 cups of milk chocolate chips
11/2 cups of creamy peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter
11/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal


1. Prepare your brownies according to the directions and bake for 5 minutes less than the time stated. About 20-25 minutes.

2. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the peanut butter cups and the peanuts. Bake an additional 5 minutes.

3. In the meantime, on low heat, mix butter, peanut butter and chips until melted and smooth. When done add the Rice Krispies Cereal.

4. Pour mixture over the brownies and spread evenly. Let cool a few minutes and then place into fridge for 2 hours. Cut and serve. Store in air tight container in the refridgerator.

I changed the recipe, I took a short cut and used a box, dark chocolate brownie mix. I did not use the peanuts as I don't really like them.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! I see a few more baking projects in my weekend plans! Enjoy! Come back and tell me if you make these and how you like them!

Like you, I love to bake. BUT, I wish I had the willpower like you, to give it all away:))) I do hope you save some treats for yourself!
