I recently made these for a friend who was recovering from surgery. Let me tell you, pregnant or not, these are amazing! And they are rich, but if you are going to have a something sweet in my opinion you should just go all out :) Make a batch and invite some friends over, you won't want to be left alone with these in the house!
*I kept mine in the refrigerator and liked them best cold :)
Brownie Goody Bars Source: Betty Crocker
box your favorite brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
cup vanilla frosting
cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped (I didn't measure mine but could have used more)
cups Rice Krispies cereal
cup creamy peanut butter
cups (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan (I used a 9 x 13 pan) with cooking spray. Make and bake brownies as directed on box. Cool completely.
- Frost brownies with frosting. Sprinkle with peanuts; refrigerate while making cereal mixture.
- Measure cereal into medium bowl; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Spread over frosted brownies.
- Refrigerate 1 hour or until set before cutting.
