AntiChrist Brownies

I thought I'd repost this recipe because it is a bit hard to find (one more reason I need to revamp this blog huh?) Anyway, Ill be bringing these for my students after their final on Monday and Tuesday....

For lack of a better title (other than The AntiChrist of Weight Watchers Brownies) I am going to call them 'chocolatechipnutbuttermarshmallowbrowniekrispys'. You can make up your own title.

fudge brownie mix 1 pkg (2 eggs, 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup water)
1 bag mini marshmallows
chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I like Jif for baking but whateva)
1 tbs butter
1 1/2 cups rice krispys
13x9 pan

mix and cook brownies as directed on box. I like the fudge-y-er brownies from Duncan Hines but whatever is on sale or use what you like. (I haven't made brownies from scratch in years-who's got time for that?)
cook about 25 mins (see box)
check for done-ness with toothpick allow to cool

sprinkle marshmallows on top of brownies, I know it says a whole bag of mini marshmallows but dang, that's a lot of marshmallows-I just use enough to cover.
bake another 5-10 or until marshmallows golden brown, allow to cool

Recipes are like the pirate's code

While brownies are baking, mix chocolate chips (I like Ghirardelli milk chocolate morsels but use whatever suits you), peanut butter and butter in sauce pan and melt completely on low temp
add Rice Krispys to chocolate mixture
spread on top of marshmallows
The Chocolate mix should still be warm enough to spread easily with a spatula or wooden spoon. I don’t worry about the Marshmallows mixing with the chocolate, though I do believe that the original recipe says should be three layers; brownie, marshmallow, and chocolate. If you want to do it that way, allow the chocolate mix to cool and then spoon evenly on marshmallows.
Allow to cool completely or place in freezer for 15 minutes before cutting into 1.5"-2" squares.
