Whew, it has been awhile, hasn't it? Sorry for those who have been waiting desperately (ahem ;D) for an update. I do have a few posts lined up, but somehow have not managed to time to write them. In a bid to end procrastoblogging, I am just shouldering through it all and writing one up. RIGHT. NOW.
Anyways, this was from awhile ago, last year, lol. The sisters and I were visiting the cousins + the one brother in Bradford and we really really wanted to make something. Because for once, we had an oven in reach! It was a bit hard because of limited equipment available so we decided to make something easy. Or at least, it looked easy. :P Looked super tasty too, which is oh so very important. Apologies about the pictures, as the kitchen was rather dark... I tried my best though! Anyway, here we go! :)
What you need:
For the brownies:
Use your favourite recipe :P I simplified the original author's recipe for brownies, which is as follows
2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
For the Krispy topping:
1 cup chopped Reese's peanut butter cups - did NOT have this unfortunately, so we subbed with peanut butter + chocolate. *sad face*
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
What you do:
- To make the brownies, melt butter and chocolate in the microwave. Add in sugar and mix until fluffy. Add in eggs, beating in one at a time. Add flour and stir until just combined.
- Pour into greased baking pan, ours was 9x11 or something. Bake at 180 C for 20-25 minutes.
- Remove and top with broken up Reese's Pieces (we just slathered on peanut butter and sprinkled chocolate chips...) and bake for 4-6 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Stir in cereal. Remove brownies from oven and spread this chocolate mixture on top. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. <3
Lookit all those layers. :3 This was lovely indeed! The brownie was fudgy, the rice krispy layer gave a ncie crunch to it all and was deliciously peanut buttery. I don't like peanuts but I LOVE peanut butter with chocolate. *drools*
We cut out a portion for ourselves and gave away the rest to the the cousins and brother and some housemates too. Hope they enjoyed it! <3
Quote of the day: There's nothing like unrequited love to take all the flavor out of a peanut butter sandwich.
