Brownie Goody Bars

1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix

Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box

1 cup Betty Crocker® Cream cheese frosting (from 16 oz container)

1/2 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped

2 cups crisp rice cereal

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/3 cups (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips

Notes/Story: Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with cooking spray or shortening. Make and bake brownies as directed on box. Cool completely. Frost brownies with frosting. Sprinkle frosting with peanuts; refrigerate while making cereal mixture:

Measure cereal into medium bowl; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Spread over frosted brownies. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set before cutting. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and boy they are GOOD. I just about fainted with my first bite. No joke. Good thing I have a plan for these bars and bringing them to work...otherwise they would not last very long around here!
