Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Brownies

A while back, Aaron got a job doing statistical data compilation for the BYU library. He did a great job and impressed the HR manager :) he now does all kinds of projects for the library, and has a few interviews for other jobs. What a stud. Oh, and it was his birthday yesterday. We are celebrating today by going to Rodizio's Grill and The Avengers (in 3D). He didn't really want a cake, but I did make these little darlins'. I saw a similar recipe on Pinterest, but the original recipe had chocolate chips at the bottom, and I wanted brownie instead. Oh holy Moses these were good. Aaron and I ate the whole pan (this is why I only make one treat a week).

"May the fourth be with you."

Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Brownies

1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg*
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Peanut Butter Rice Krispies:
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp butter or coconut oil
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup brown rice krispies (or regular)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray mini-cupcake tin with nonstick spray.
  2. Beat butter (or coconut oil) and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat for another minute.
  3. In separate bowl, mix together cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix well before mixing in chocolate chips.
  4. Fill each muffin tin about 1/4-1/3 of the way full. Cook for 8-10 minutes.
  5. While brownies are baking, combine peanut butter, butter (or coconut oil), powdered sugar, and vanilla in bowl. When mixed, add rice krispies.
  6. After brownies have cooled, fill the rest of the tin with the rice krispy mixture. Chill in fridge until set. Inhale. The end.
*I used chia seed substitute and it worked great.

Oh, and I made this cute cake stand. I found the top part at my old apartment (no one claimed it so I took it), the leg was salvaged from our old ottoman, and the bottom was from Lowes. It cost almost nothing to make and I'm pretty happy with the results!


  1. I love the cake stand!! It turned out amazing. I will soon love the new recipe too. I can tell this just by looking... I appreciate the updates on the daily doings of your life together. You two are a great couple.

    1. Surprising, Aaron was behind at least half of the creativity :) I bet you'll like the treats, I know we did. Thanks! I'm glad you are enjoying the updates.
