  • 1 box brownie mix (18.3 oz)
  • 3 c mini marshmallows
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c light corn syrup
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 2 c Rice Krispies
  • 2 c salted peanuts


  • Prepare the brownie mix according to the box instructions.  (Be sure that you're preparing it in a 9x13 pan - some brownie mixes these days only fit an 8x8 square pan).
  • Remove the brownies from the oven and immediately put sprinkle the marshmallows over-top; return to the oven for 3 minutes.
  • While the brownies cool a bit, make the topping.  In a microwave-safe bowl, stir together the chocolate chips, corn syrup, butter.
  • Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until smooth.
  • Add the peanuts and Rice Krispies and stir until they are evenly coated.  
  • Carefully spoon the mixture over the marshmallow-covered brownies.  Use a rubber spatula or knife to spread it out evenly.
  • Cool the bars completely before cutting.  (You can put them in the fridge to help set the bars more quickly, but cut them before they harden too much!)
