Last week I was seriously craving brownies, but with two kids at home now I just didn't have time to bake! That's when I remembered a recipe I had mentally bookmarked, no bake brownies, now even I could find time to make these. I didn't have the exact ingredients on hand so I hand to wing it and hope for satisfactory results. The good news is they turned out delicious! And they are so easy to make that you should head to your kitchen and mix yourself up a batch. Rich, fudgy chocolate and peanut butter flavors combine with a nice crunch to create a decadent and irresistible quick brownie. Enjoy and happy no baking!
1 c chocolate, I used milk and semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tbs butter
6 Tbs corn syrup
40 miniature marshmallows
1 c peanut butter
1 1/2 c Chex cereal, I used corn
In a medium sized saucepan over low heat melt the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly to avoid burning. Remove from the heat and stir in the marshmallows until smooth, add the corn syrup, peanut butter and cereal and stir to combine. Press the mixture into a greased 8"x8" pan and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm. If you like a soft brownie let the mixture set at room temperature, this will take longer but is equally delicious. Slice and serve.
Yields 16 brownies
