Fudge Crunch Brownies

Pin It




Do you ever have those day's where chocolate is really the only thing you want to eat?
Me too.
Ever have those days where chocolate is really ALL you eat?
Uhhhhh.... me either.
Just in case you are prone to having days like that, I made you something special. They have cereal in them so you can eat them for breakfast. And the peanuts totally count for protein, so why not eat them again for lunch? And the base is the fudgiest yummiest brownie. You deserve one after a long hard day, so go ahead and eat another one for dinner.
Uh oh. I feel another one of those days coming on. :)






Side note:  When I was a kid used to make these with chocolate cake  as the base, 
and I used marshmallows instead of peanuts.  
I have a soft spot for  brownies, but this variation is really yummy too,
 and a good option if you have nut allergies!
Fudge Crunch Brownies
by: Back For Seconds



  • 1 batch of your fave brownie batter
  • 3/4 cup salted peanuts
  • 3 cups rice krispies
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350*
Whip up a batch of your favorite fudge brownie and bake in a 9x13" pan at 350* for about 20 min or until fudgy crumbs come off when tested with tooth pick. Immediately sprinkle the peanuts over brownies. 
In a large bowl melt chocolate chips and peanut butter. Stir in rice cereal and pour over brownies right away. Chill in the refrigerator until set.  I stored these in the fridge but you could leave them at room temp. Just don't let them get warm or the chocolate will melt! Good luck eating just one...
Happy Chocolate Day!!

Oooh! I saw these in a magazine awhile back and lost the recipe--glad you made them because I thought they looked SO good, especially for those chocolate days :) almost like a cocoa krispy treat meets brownie meets awesomeness.
