In honor of my one hundredth blog post on my WordPress blog, I decided to do a little celebration by baking something luscious, and I also chose to cook something because I need to practice baking for Thanksgiving and Christmas. So tonight I did just that by baking these amazing and not to mention huge brownies. My brother and sister helped me some, but I did most of the work. The result of my brownies turned out to be fantastic. 

Have fun baking these delicious bad boys. 

Peanut Butter Cup Crack Brownies 

One box brownie mix (not family sized) prepared according to package directions in a 9x9 pan
½ C chopped salted or honey roasted peanuts
12 Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp butter
 1¼ C. creamy peanut butter 
1¾ C. crispy rice cereal
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp Salt

Directions

Bake brownies according to package directions in a 9x9 pan lined with foil and lightly grease it with non-stick cooking spray. Then during the last five minutes of baking, remove from oven and spread the chopped peanut butter cups and chopped peanuts on top. Return to oven for remaining five minutes to melt the chocolate. Then as soon as you pull them out of the oven, spread the melty peanut butter cups/peanuts with an off-set spatula to smooth over the top.

Let brownies cool. Next in a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Heat in microwave for one minute, stirring when done. If needed, continue heating in twenty-second increments until the chocolate chips has melted. Stir in cereal, vanilla and salt until evenly combined.Pour over brownies and smooth. Place brownies in the fridge and let them Chill until chocolate is hardened, about two hours. Cut into squares to serve
