  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of vanilla powder (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mini unwrapped Reese's peanut butter cups
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In another medium-sized bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together melted butter and sugar until well-combined. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until well-incorporated.

Using a spoon, stir in dry ingredients. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, sprinkle the mini Reese's peanut butter cups on top. Then, return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

In the meantime, melt together the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter over a double boiler or in a microwave. Once completely smooth and melted, stir in Rice Krispies and mix together to evenly coat.

Immediately after removing the brownies from the oven, spread the Rice Krispie layer on top. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting and serving.
