Everything that's irresistible about a candy bar just got rolled into one recipe—brownies on the bottom, frosting and peanuts in the middle and crunchy cereal on top.
box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker™ Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 16 oz container)
cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
cups crisp rice cereal
cup creamy peanut butter
cups (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
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.
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. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
This recipe is just part of the grand-prize winning entry of the Trinity Lutheran Church Women of Birchwood, Wisconsin, in Betty Crocker's 1999 national Bake Sales Competition for nonprofit organizations that hold bake sales as a means of raising money.
