  • 18 oz brownie mix
  • 3 TBSP Water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup vanilla frosting from 16 oz container
  • ½ cup salted peanuts coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • cup peanut butter creamy
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips 1 1/3 cups


  • Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with cooking spray or shortening. (For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan.)
  • Make and bake brownies as directed on box. Cool completely.
  • Spread brownies with frosting. Sprinkle with peanuts; refrigerate while making cereal mixture.
  • Measure cereal into medium bowl; set aside.
  • Microwave peanut butter and chocolate chips for 1 min 30 seconds. Add additional time in 20 second intervals until chocolate has melted and mixture can be easily stirred together. Pour over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Spread over frosted brownies. I found making small, short strokes with a rubber spatula made it easier to spread the mixture.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until set before cutting. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 columns. Store tightly covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
