For a day filled with errands like grocery shopping and a post office run, I had to fight the strong urge to wear a white v-neck and cutoffs. I find that the easiest way to make an otherwise mundane day more exciting is to dress up a little bit. I chose this F21 blouse and accessories, Vince riding pants, Burberry bag and Jeffrey Campbell clogs.
I am widely known by friends and family as a chocolate fiend, so when I came across a recipe called "Ooey Gooey Peanut Butter Marshmallow Krispie Topped Brownies" I felt it was my duty as a chocoholic to make these as soon as possible. I know this isn't exactly a food blog, but it would be plain selfish not to share the recipe, so here it is:
1 box of brownie mix (plus any ingredients the box calls for to make them)
4 cups mini marshmallows (usually one regular sized bag)
1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups crispy rice cereal
•Preheat oven to temperature directed on brownie package
•Line the pan with foil
•Prepare brownies using the ingredients the box calls for.
•Two minutes before they are supposed to be done, take brownies out of the oven and sprinkle the marshmallows evenly over top of brownies. Let cool completely.
•Prepare topping. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add cereal and stir to coat. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate mixture over the marshmallow layer, spreading as evenly as possible. Things will look gooey at this point, so refrain from cutting them just yet. Put the brownies in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.
•Cut into squares, this recipe yields about 16 to 20 brownies.
