peanut butter cup crunch brownies

not exactly health food! recipe is adapted from here. it goes without saying that brownies are SO GOOD.  And pretty easy to make using a boxed brownie mix. 🙂


  • 1 batch brownies (i used a box mix)
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts
  • 8 chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups rice krispies


  1. Mix brownies according to directions in a 9 x 13 pan and bake for about 5 minutes less than what the box calls for.
  2. Remove from oven and sprinkle with peanuts and peanut butter cups, as pictured above.  Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes.
  3. While brownies are finishing in the oven, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in cereal and mix well.
  4. Remove brownies from oven and evenly pour pb/chocolate/rice krispie mixture over brownies.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares.  Enjoy!!


  1. Oh wow, they look extremely decadent and utterly delicious!

  2. I made something similar to what you just made…we were probably knee deep in PB cup heaven about the same time over the weekend 🙂 Great minds think alike: choc + PB!

  3. I can think of no better food combination that chocolate and peanut butter. These look incredible.

  4. These look so dangerous!
