Peanut Butter Krispie Topped Brownies

After yoga practice this week, a friend asked me if I had ever made bars with the following ingredients: brownies, marshmallows, Rice Krispies and peanut butter. She described these as utterly decadent, so I whipped up half a batch of these Peanut Butter Krispie Topped Brownies to test them out myself.

She was spot on. I used my Fudgy Chocolate Brownies for this trial run…soooooo good!!!!

 Peanut Butter Krispie Brownies!

Beware that these layered brownies don’t slice into picture-perfect squares. The marshmallows are super sticky. I didn’t try freezing them before cutting, but that certainly could help or use a hot dry knife.

I always line my baking pans with non-stick foil to assist in removing sticky treats from the pan…but from there, things went downhill. Not in flavor but in trying to cut the perfect bar!

But I don’t think anyone will complain a little chocolate goo on the marshmallow layer after taking their first nibble. I need to hide these babies before I eat them all!  These Peanut Butter Krispie Topped Brownies will surely become a new family favorite treat!

If you love this flavor profile, these chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies will also please your palate! Or these Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies. Check out all my Brownie Recipes, too.
