So yesterday Matt and I went over to his brother’s apartment to have dinner with him and his girlfriend, and I decided that I wanted to make a fun dessert. I was craving chocolate (and made the executive decision that everyone else would be) so brownies felt like the way to go. I remembered Jessica’s (over at How Sweet Eats) better-than-crack brownies, switched up some of the ingredients, and created a Jessica-inspired version of my own.
Sugar Coma Brownies
1 boxed brownie mix
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup carob chips
3/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1 T earth balance butter spread
2 1/2 cups rice crispies cereal
Make the brownies as you normally would, in a 9 x 9 pan if possible, for 20 minutes. When the brownies are 5 minutes from being done, melt the chocolate chips, carob chips, peanut butter and earth balance in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir the mixture into the rice krispies. When the brownies are cooked, pour the mixture over the brownies in the pan, and top with LOTS of sprinkles. Put back in the oven for 5 more minutes. When finished, refrigerate for at least an hour.
Enjoy! And Jessica, you’re a genius.
