Taste testing should be reserved for me, what were they thinking.
Stir in Rice Crispy’s or Cocoa Crispy’s into the melted peanut butter/chocolate mixture.
We used Envirokidz Organic Chocolate Koala Crisps since it’s the cereal we buy for the kids and it worked great! (They haven’t sent me product or paid me to use their name this is my own personal opinion.)
Spread chocolate, peanut butter, crisp mixture over the top of cooked brownies with peanut butter.
Place in refrigerator 2 hours before serving or 45 minutes to an hour in the freezer until chocolate sets.
Cut to desired serving size and serve with Ice Cream if you’re feeling extra naughty.
These are extra rich so I suggest small slices.
