Okay, so I have these brownies. And they are utterly sinful. Like the kind of dessert, that after one bite you can virtually hear your thighs warning you to stop. So I could be an angel and not share these devilish treats with you, but I'd rather repent later and enjoy the moment. Because you will be blissfully happy as you eat these, and you will be glad I shared, and then, well, you might feel the need to start an all leafy green diet.

-1 box of your favorite brownies, I use a dark chocolate
-2/3 c. salted peanuts
-1 bag of Reese Cup minis, these are the tiny, unwrapped ones
-15 Dark Chocolate Reese Cup, miniature, wrapped, chopped
-1, 12 oz. bag semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
-1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
-1 Tbsp. butter
-2 c. Rice Krispie cereal
Preheat oven to temp on brownie box. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare brownies according to box instructions. Pour evenly into pan and bake for 20-22 minutes. I bake 20 minutes because I like a moister bottom.
While brownies bake, in a small bowl add peanuts, bag of Reese minis, and chopped Reese miniatures. After brownies have baked, evenly toss the peanut mixture over the top and bake additional 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a sauce pan over medium-low heat, melt chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter together. Once smooth, stir in your cereal. Pour over the top of brownies, and use an offset spatula to smooth evenly. Immediately refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until the topping has hardened.
Using a sharp knife, cut into 24 bars, and then I usually cut the bars into halves. These are rich! And delicious! And I dare you to just eat one little triangle! Mwwah-hahahaha!
