Rice Krispie treats just scream “kid!” to me. They are every child’s lunchbox dream. Add that to the bottom of a fudgy brownie, put it in your kid’s lunchbox, and you’ve got yourself one happy child with jealous friends (Pack her/him pack extras and tell her/him to share. I remember how sad I used to get when my best friend would have treats in her lunchbox on the days I didn’t. Life was tough back then).
These are really great. I was honestly expecting the Rice Krispies to get soggy, but fortunately they stayed nice and crunchy and made a great crust to these fudgy, dense brownies. The bottom caramelized from the marshmallow.
I highly encourage you to make these babies and pack them in a lunchbox (Even in your adult lunchbox. No judging here. I have one, too).
- 10 Rice Krispie Treats (Packaged or Homemade)
- 1 Box Brownie Mix
- In a 9×13 inch pan, smash Rice Krispie Treats to form a crust.
- Follow the instructions on the box to make the brownies. Pour over the Rice Krispie layer.
- Bake according to the box instructions. (Mine are so thick because I made them in an 8×8 pan… that’s up to you, though!)
- Cool and eat!
