Okay. So if you are looking for a healthy, low-fat, non-life threatening dessert . . . close this post right now and move on. If you are looking for a simply, to-die-for dessert . . . read on. As you can see from the major ingredients above, this is NOT heart-healthy. Now if you know me, you know that this is NOT my typical dessert -- I pretty much stick to quinoa, rice, beans, low-fat, low-cholesterol . . . blah, blah, blah. But every once in awhile, I allow myself an unhealthy indulgence and these brownies fit the bill!
The original recipe was found on a delightful blog, "Deliciously Yum". Kathi shared this recipe and she calls these Krispie Peanut Butter Cup Brownies. You can click on the link to get the recipe. I followed her recipe exactly. The only suggestion I have is that after they chill in the refrigerator, let them set out for about 10 minutes before cutting. If you try cutting them straight out of the fridge, the rice krispie top tends to separate from the brownie part. Once I let the sit out a bit, they held together just fine.
Is your mouth watering yet?? This made a 9X13 of these killer bars. They were so thick and rich that I cut them into 1" squares. The first plate went to the Women's Bible Study dessert fellowship and there were none left. I had a second plate of them that went to work with me . . . gone.
As an added bonus, after removing the brownies from the baking dish, I scraped out all of this luscious goodness! About a cup or more of the 'dregs' -- so I put it all in a ziplock bag and tossed it into the freezer. I'm thinking this will be awesome as an ice cream topping (fat free ice cream, of course) or to go on top of angel food cake slices!
So eat like a bird for a few days, THEN, head on over to Kathi's site and make these brownies!
