How To Make these Brownie Batter Krispie Treats
If you have made rice crispy treats before, you will have no problem making these! You just need a few extra ingredients to give them that brownie edge. First and foremost you will need brownie mix.
You could even use cocoa krispies if you wanted to boost up the chocolate flavor even more, but I have found that if you do that, they taste less like “brownie batter”and more just like chocolate. Not a bad thing, mind you, just a little off target.
The of course you should chop up some brownies and throw them into the brownie batter krispies as well. And yes, I almost always cheat this step and use premade brownies. If you are an over achiever, or just happen to have some brownies that didn’t get eaten (what?) you can use homemade. I won’t judge you for that, if you don’t judge me for my use of premade. See? We CAN get along!
Mix your chopped brownie pieces right into the rice krispie cereal and stir that all together with the melted marshmallow mixture.
Press the gooey goodness into a pan and wait as long as you’re physically able to cut them into squares.
The Brownie Batter Krispie Treats are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. They’re such a fun dessert, and sure to be a crowd pleaser!
