Brownie Mallow Treats

Let me preface this by saying that my Mom and I are known for our desserts. Mom and I both love to bake and through the years we've acquired some awesome recipes. Every family function I can remember, we were on dessert duty. So I figured that as I bake things, I'll try to post the famous recipes on here as well! Why not share the wealth right?! I've followed in Mom's footsteps and always make desserts when I'm invited somewhere. I just love to bake and sometimes will just bake because I'm in the mood. So we had our annual block party this weekend and our house number was assigned either a dessert or salad. You guessed it-dessert it was!

So I chose this recipe....actually Mom and I made these years ago and LOVED them. Then we lost the recipe somehow! We always thought about them, but never found our recipe. The genius that I am (haha) decided to look on the internet and voila-there it was! I have no idea what they're really called, but Brownie Mallow Treats sound good to me! So here you go:

Brownie Mallow Treats
1 box fudge brownie mix (for a 9 x 13" pan-larger size box)
1 bag (10oz roughly) mini marshmallows
1 tbsp. butter
2 cups chocolate chips (I used an entire bag-it's close enough)
1 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
1 1/2 cup crisped rice cereal

1. Grease bottom of 9 x 13" pan (or spray with non-stick spray). Mix brownies according to box instructions. Bake roughly 20-22min. on 350.(I usually bake less than the box says because if you do it that long, they'll be over done).

2. Take out of oven, top with marshmallows and bake another 3min. The marshmallows will not be completely melted. Let cool on a wire rack.

3. In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Add cereal and stir until coated. Pour mixture over marshmallows and spread. Refrigerate about 2 hours before serving.

I usually cut these into small pieces because they are pretty rich.

And here they are ready to go!They were a big hit....and a piece of heaven!

I may actually make these someday! You are too funny with your pictures, but it helps with the dessert challenged...myself!
