Peanut Butter Cup Crunch Brownie Bars

Hey everyone!  Between work and all this healthy business going on at my house, I haven't had much time to devote to cooking.  But, my husband finally finished his biggest loser competition!  We are awaiting the results....wait, not even husband just got the results!!  He WON!!!   Well, I guess now is the best time of any to bust out an amazing dessert, right?!  ha ha.  These brownies are SO amazing!  I had been eying these ever since brown-eyed baker posted these on her blog.  I absolutely love peanut-butter and chocolate together, and these just bring that combo to a whole other level.  Hope you enjoy this one :)

Printable Version

1 batch of your favorite brownies (baked in a 9 x 9" pan so they are thicker)
1 (12 ounce) bag Reeses peanut butter cups, crushed
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup Rice Krispies cereal

1.  Prepare brownies, and bake 5 minutes less than recipe calls for.  Remove from oven and sprinkle Reeses on top.  Put back in the oven and cook last 5 minutes.
2.  Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir in the cereal evenly to coat.
3.  Remove brownies from the oven and pour chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the top.  Spread evenly.
4.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting and serving.
