Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Brownie Bars

This was the first time I've made these and they were SOOOOO yummy! Some of my favorites all rolled into one delectable treat!

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt

2+ cups mini marshmallows

1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups crisp rice cereal

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat together. Combine dry ingredients and stir into wet mixture. Spread in a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows over the top and bake for 3 more minutes. Cool completely.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine peanut butter and chocolate chips. Melt in the microwave by heating for 30 seconds then stirring, repeated until all the chips are melted. Do not overheat. Mix in cereal and spread on top of marshmallow layer. Refrigerate two hours until firm. Cut into bars to serve.
