Make these layered brownie, marshmallow, and peanut butter cereal squares for a melt-in-your-mouth dessert.




  • Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions, using a 13x9x2-inch baking pan and the directions for chewy (not cakelike) brownies. Bake according to directions.

  • Sprinkle baked brownies with marshmallows and return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

  • In a saucepan, combine chocolate pieces, peanut butter, and butter or margarine. Heat and stir until the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat; stir in the cereal. Pour evenly over marshmallows.

  • Refrigerate until topping is set. Cut into bars. Serve at room temperature. Makes 36 bars.


Instead of melting the chocolate, peanut butter, and butter or margarine in a saucepan on the range top, melt them in your microwave oven. Place the three ingredients in a microwave-safe mixing bowl and microcook the mixture on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted, stirring once. Stir in the cereal and continue as directed above.
