Brownie Goody Bars

Everything that's irresistible about a good candy bar just got rolled into one recipe. What's your favorite part? The brownies on the bottom? The frosting and peanuts in the middle? Or the crunchy cereal on the top?


16 servings


1 (1 pound 2.4 ounce) box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium
brownie mix
water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
1 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 16 ounce container)
1/2 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 cups crisp rice cereal
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/3 cups (8 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease bottom only of a 9-inch square pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour. (For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan.)

Make and bake brownies as directed on box. Cool completely.

Frost brownies with frosting. Sprinkle with peanuts; refrigerate while making cereal mixture.

Measure cereal into medium bowl; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Spread over frosted brownies. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set before cutting. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.
