Goody Brownie Bars by Betty Crocker

You can make this recipe from scratch OR use a brownie mix! Either way, these are really great bars! 
  • 1  cup Vanilla frosting (from 16 oz container)  or your own made from scratch (1 stick of butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2-4 Tbsp of Milk)
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1-1/3 cups (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips


  1.  Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with cooking spray or shortening.       
  2.  Make and bake brownies as directed on box or from your own recipe. Cool completely. Frost brownies with frosting.  Sprinkle with peanuts; refrigerate while making cereal mixture.    
  3.  Measure cereal into medium bowl; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. 
  4.  Pour over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Spread over frosted brownies. 
  5.  Refrigerate 1 hour or until set before cutting. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
