Peanut Butter Cup Crunch Brownies

How to Store Leftovers

If, by some miracle, you have leftover brownies, here’s how to keep them at their best:

  • Room Temperature: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Refrigeration: For longer storage, refrigerate for up to a week.
  • Freezing: Brownies can be frozen for up to 3 months. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and then foil.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Now, let’s dive into the delightful process of creating these Peanut Butter Cup Crunch Brownies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in granulated sugar until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually add the egg mixture to the butter-sugar mixture, stirring until well incorporated.
  4. Sift in the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  5. Gently fold in the chopped peanut butter cups and crispy rice cereal.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  8. Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting into squares.
