These peanut butter marshmallow krispie topped brownies are the perfect after school treat. Tons of chocolate flavor with just a hint of peanut butter.

I was wandering around the house and I knew I needed to make something for the blog but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to make. Eventually, I realized chocolate is 100% what I was craving. I searched for something yummy and found it on fellow bloggers page – Cookie Madness.

The recipe combined, chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows and rice Krispies. Hello, good times in my mouth! For the brownie bottom of this dessert, you can use either boxed brownies or homemade brownies. I went the boxed route because I’m all about taking a few shortcuts in the kitchen. Plus, I sorta don’t hate boxed brownies.

After you make the brownies you just throw on marshmallows, let them melt, spread them out and top with a delicious peanut butter chocolate rice Krispie mixture. The hardest part about making peanut butter marshmallow Krispie topped brownies is waiting until it’s actually set to cut into them. I HATED waiting for them to set up because I wanted them RIGHT AWAY!

Of course, because I know how to follow directions (sorta laughable because I often don’t) I let them set up completely before cutting into them. I mean, I didn’t want a giant chocolate mess on my hands if I hadn’t waited and I knew that was exactly what I was going to get.

Want to know the good news? Worth the wait. 100% worth. the. wait. These babies are packed full of peanut butter chocolate flavor and the whole crunchy topping chewy middle soft brownie bottom thing just totally works. PLUS you won’t be able to stop eating them. Which is both a blessing a curse.

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Krispie Topped Brownies

These peanut butter marshmallow krispie topped brownies are the perfect after school treat. Tons of chocolate flavor with just a hint of peanut butter.

Yield: 9x13 pan

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 (18 ounce) brownie mix
  • 4 cups mini-marshmallows
  • 1-1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal

Cookie Madness

Directions:

Preheat oven to temperature directed on brownie package.

Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper.

Prepare brownies according to box directions.

Two minutes before the brownies are fully cooked, pull brownies from the oven and add marshmallows on the top. Return to oven for 2 minutes to soften marshmallows. Remove from oven and spread marshmallows over the top of brownies. Let cool completely.

In a microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add cereal and stir to combine.

Drop spoonfuls of chocolate mixture over marshmallow layer, spreading as evenly as possible. Things will be very messy at this point. Don't cheat and try to cut too soon. Put the brownies in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.

Lift from pan and cut into squares.

    These look ridiculously good! The brownie recipe on the bakers chocolate box is really good, if you haven’t tried it. I believe it is called one bowl brownies. I bet they’d taste good with this recipe 🙂

    I have to make these! I don’t have the rice Krispies though so I’ll try it with fruity pebbles. ☺
