Aunt Pam and Cousin Julie via Taste of Home



·         1 cup butter, softened

·         2 cups sugar

·         4 eggs

·         6 Tb cocoa powder

·         1 cup flour

·         2 tsp vanilla

·         ½ tsp salt

·         1 jar, 7 oz, marshmallow cream

·         1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or creamy

·         2 cups chocolate chips

·         3 cups rice cereal


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until well combined.  Add the eggs one at a time, mixing between each addition.  In another bowl whisk the cocoa and flour.  Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture in batches until combined.  Finally, add the vanilla and salt and mix until combined.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until set in the middle and the edges start to pull away from the pan.  Allow to cool.

Once the brownies have cooled, spread the jar of marshmallow cream over the top.  In a large microwaveable bowl melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter.  Once melted, stir to combine.  Fold in the rice cereal.  Spread this mixture over the marshmallow cream.  Refrigerate until set.
