Day 21: Easy Peanut Butter Marshmallow Krispie Topped Brownies

We didn't get to make a personal delivery today since Matt had to stay a little after school then we had to rush for him to do a health talk at the church. But they still got given out and we met some people there that we didn't know. By the way, if anyone has any people they know that we could deliver to, feel free to give us their name! So next Saturday, the 29th, is when we're having the little health talk thing in our backyard. It's basically the same thing we did today. Whoever wants to come is invited. It'll be at 7pm and last maybe like 30 min. or so. I think it'll be fun. We'll probably have some (healthy) snacks too, nothing major though. If you need the address just let me know!
Today's "cookie" isn't a cookie. I don't think you'll complain though, this thing is delicious!!! It was just calling my name. I love the marshmallow layer and the top has a really nice crunch. It's easy to make but takes a little while with all the cooling. I've made these using Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Brownies and regular fudge brownies. Ok let's get to the important stuff and not keep the recipe waiting any longer!

Easy Peanut Butter Marshmallow Krispie Topped Brownies
adapted from cookiemadess

1 box (18.3 to 21 oz) brownie mix plus eggs & oil (or whatever box calls for)
4 cups marshmallows (small ones)
1 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups crispy rice cereal

Preheat oven to temperature directed on brownie package (mine said 350 degrees F.).
Line the pan with non-stick foil. Parchment should work too.
Prepare brownies using amount of oil, eggs, water called for on box. Two minutes before they are supposed to be done, pull brownies from the oven and sprinkle marshmallows across top. Return to oven for 2 minutes to soften marshmallows. Remove from oven and spread soft marshmallows over top of brownies. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Prepare topping. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted and mixtue is smooth. Add cereal and stir to coat. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate mixture over marshmallow layer, spreading as evenly as possible. Things will look gooey at this point, so don’t even think about cutting. Put the brownies in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.
Lift from pan and score into squares (about 16 or 20).
