{August 16, 2010}   Sticky Peanut Brownie Bites

I didn’t think anything could be better than the Snickers Brownies, but this one… this one… OMG this one is super!!  AND — even though it uses a box mix for the brownies, you’d never know it!

Sticky Peanut Brownie Bite


Recipe from:

The Ingredients


  • 1 box brownie mix (I used the Betty Crocker Supreme kind with the extra chocolate syrup, yum)
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/3 cups peanut butter chips (I used about 9 oz)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 1/3 cups salted, dry roasted peanuts


  1. Heat oven to 325-350 degrees F (depending on your oven – just use whatever you would normally do for brownies).  Grease the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish with cooking spray (I use the Pam for Baking).
  2. Make brownies as directed on the box.  Since I used a bigger baking dish, I did it for about 20 minutes and then used a toothpick in the center to see if it was done.  A tiny bit underdone is ok since it will be going back in the oven.
  3. Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows and bake for 2 more minutes until the marshmallows begin to puff.
  4. Using a knife, gently spread the puffed marshmallows for even coverage.
  5. In a 3 qt saucepan, heat corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and peanut butter chips over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until chips are melted, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in the cereal and the peanuts.  Spread evenly over the marshmallows.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes or until firm.
  8. Slice into bite-sized pieces and store in refrigerator.

They look messy, but they really aren’t that bad.  The marshmallow keeps everything held together.

*edit*  Can’t believe I forgot to post the link!  Sorry Ms. Crocker!  🙂  I found this recipe from their newletter e-mail I subscribed to, but you can also click here to see the original.
