ok, these were requested to Rex's fathers Day dessert and oh man am I glad he wanted them. They are sooo good! So rich, but so good. Be prepared to drink a 1/2 a carton of milk while eating these because they are ultra sweet....my favorite :) Of course I altered them to make them lower in fat, YUM!!
Brownie mix (Pillsbury is the only one that works low-fat:)with applesauce, egg whites and water or homemade brownies here (if you use the homemade brownies don't include the pecans or carmel topping :)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons tub butter (I love Brummel and brown yogurt butter)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 teaspoons milk
3/4 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups rice krispies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1-2 cups chocolate chips
1. Whip up those brownies. Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or what box says. Let completely cool.
2. Time to make the frosting. You could always use frosting from a can, but this way is much lower in fat. In a medium bowl combine butter and powdered sugar with a hand mixer. Add in vanilla. Slowly add just a little bit of milk until you get a nice frosting thick consistency. Not to thick, you don't want to pull apart your Brownies when spreading. So nice and smooth.
3. Ok, when your brownies are cool, frost with frosting and sprinkle peanut on top. Set aside. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together. While that is melting measure your cereal into a bowl. Once the chocolate is nice and creamy, pour it over the cereal and using a spoon, combine until all cereal is coated.
4. Spread the chocolate peanut butter cereal over the frosted brownies. Cool completely about 30 minutes to an hour. Cut into bars and eat!!
