I really only share the best of the best recipes.  These brownies are to die for.  My sister Becca found this recipe in KSL newspaper some sixteen years ago and this was given an award for one of the top brownie recipes tested.  Thanks Becca for making these for so many family parties!

Here it is…

Peanut Butter Crunch Brownies
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
6 T. cocoa
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/3 c. all purpose flour
One 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
1 c. creamy peanut butter
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 c. crispy rice cereal

Cream together softened butter and sugar; add cocoa.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla extract.  In a separate bowl mix the flour and salt.  Slowly add the flour and salt mixture to the wet ingredients.  Pour this into a 9×13 baking dish and bake for 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Cool completely.  Spread marshmallow cream over the brownies.  Next, melt the chocolate chips carefully in the microwave or using a water bath over the stove.  Mix the peanut butter into the chocolate.  Now add the crispy rice cereal to the chocolate peanut butter mixture.  Spread this over the marshmallow creme layer.  Cool and store in the refrigerator. Once the brownies are firm cut into one inch squares and place in muffin liners.  Because they are so thick a one inch piece is plenty – although it’s hard to just eat just one!
