What else can I say about these fabulous brownies?
I guess the name says it all, although I don't know if they are truly better-than-crack, thank goodness!
But, what I do know is that these brownies are sinful and are full of pure delicious-ness.
You have a fudgy chocolate brownie, topped with chopped up Butterfingers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, which then gets topped off with a mixture of melted chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter and then Cocoa Pebbles cereal gets mixed in! Wow, I know, trust me they are gooooood!
These brownies are chewy and fudgy, crunchy and smooth, and chocolatey and peanut buttery! It's like eating a brownie, a candy bar, and a scotcheroo all in one!
I have made these several times and everywhere I take them, they are a huge hit!
Go make these brownies : ), don't wait!
Better-Than-Crack-Brownies: (adapted from How Sweet It Is)
-1 batch brownies for a 13x9-inch pan (boxed or your favorite homemade)
-1/2 cup chopped Butterfingers
-1 cup chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
-3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
-3/4 cup butterscotch chips
-1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
-1 1/2 cups Cocoa Pebbles cereal
Make brownies according to directions for a 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, just so that they are slightly underbaked. Remove and top with chopped Butterfingers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and bake 4-6 minutes more.
While they finish baking, melt chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter together until smooth. Stir in cereal. Remove brownies from oven and evenly pour peanut butter mixture over top.
Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. I think they taste best cold straight from the refrigerator!
