Heavenly Brownies

Healthy ~~ Absolutely NOT
Delicious ~~ Absolutely YES

If people think brownies are just some same old dessert, these brownies will knock them out of the ball park. Oh my goodness. Can brownies be sent from Heaven. I believe so. AND these are a snap to make. 

You will not lose weight eating these brownies
You may get a sugar buzz eating these brownies
And though there are several food groups involved in these brownies, they do not fit any meal plan

What you will find though, these sinfully delicious brownies may make your spouse love you more, your friends will want to hang out with you more and they will plain and simple, bring a smile to your face as you eat them. I like a lot of different sweets, but these are just really good. These are a current favorite. 

Heavenly Brownies

These nuggets of love contain a brownie on the bottom, marshmallow middle and a cocoa krispies, chocolate, peanut butter topping. WOW... a combo platter to make anyone smile. This recipe makes an 8 x 8 pan, for a regular family or friends, this is good. If you were making them for a tray or large group, please double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan.

Heavenly Brownies
adapted from
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (divided - 1/2 cup & 1 cup)
20 large marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup cocoa krispies

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 x 8 pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add the butter and the unsweetened chocolate. Place in microwave for 1-2 minutes until melted. Check and stir after 1 minute. Remove from microwave, stir in sugar. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and flour and mix together. Batter will be thick, stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

Spread batter into pan and bake for 22 minutes. The brownies will not be completely done, but remove from the oven and place the marshmallows on top. Return back to the oven and bake for another 6 minutes. The marshmallows will be soft and smashable. Spread the marshmallows over the brownies.

As your brownies start to cool, using the same bowl, gently melt the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir together until melted, add cocoa krispies and spread over the brownies. Let the chocolate layer harden before cutting.
