Triple Threat Brownies

I LOVE having company over because it gives me a reason to make a dessert!  And I really LOVE having company over to EAT the dessert otherwise I will keep eating it until it is GONE!  We had some family stay with us for a long weekend, so I got to make a few desserts while they were here.  YAY!  This recipe combines several of my favorite things 1- Brownies, 2-Cheesecake, 3-and Peanut Butter.  YUM YUM and YUM!

Ingredients
  • 3 Cups Rice Crispies
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 12 oz bag of  Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 12 oz can of Cream Cheese Icing
  • Brownie Mix (made according directions on box)
Make brownies according to box in a 13x9 inch baking dish.  Let them cool completely.  When cool, spread the cream cheese icing evenly over brownies. Place in freezer for about 20 minutes or long enough for the icing to become hard.  This will make it easier to spread the third layer on top.  
 In a sauce pan combine chocolate chips and peanut butter.  Over medium heat stir the peanut butter and chocolate chips as they melt.
 When the mixture is smooth and creamy and all chocolate chips are melted, remove from heat. Add in the rice crispies and gently stir to combine.
 Make sure you stir gently so you don't crush the rice crispies.
 At this point, my kids asked me if this is how you make Cocoa Crispies...they always make me laugh!
 Remove brownie pan from freezer and spread the rice crispy mixture evenly on top.  Refrigerate the triple layer brownies for about a half hour.  Cut with sharp knife and serve with a glass of milk!!!
