Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

You can tell from my posts that I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  LOVE!  So when Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO posted this recipe, I just had to share it.  The peanut butter layer is like a cheesecake filling thanks to the addition of cream cheese.  Rich, decadent and perfect!

A timesaver for this recipe is to use your favorite brownie mix for the bottom layer.

Marshmallow Brownies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies on Top

That’s quite a mouthful of a name!  But darn if these aren’t great.  Everyone I’ve given a piece to has asked for the recipe.  And that’s a lot of people!

The recipe was based off of one published in Taste of Home magazine.  The only change I made was using a box brownie mix for the first layer instead of making one from scratch.  Doing that made this a very easy recipe.

The top layer is a combination of chocolate and peanut butter that has been melted and combined (that is one heck of a divine combination) to which rice krispies have been added.  If you aren’t a rice krispies fan you can easily leave them out.
