Brownie Batter Krispie Treats


So today my family thinks I am a crazy-woman.

Which is always about half-true.

But seriously.

You moms out there will understand that saying the same thing 400 times makes you a little insane.

Especially when no one listens 399 times.

It’s only the 400th time when your head literally spins off your body, your mouth contorting into weird geometric shapes while spittle flies as you speak in a strange demon voice that “people” tend to take notice.

And THEN they say really dumb  things like, “Geez.  I can hear you” and look at you like you are basically an unhinged woman who gets enraged for no reason whatsoever and just enjoys yelling and making ugly-angry faces all the live-long day.


So that may be happening to me right now.



Ok, sorry about that.

Let’s talk happy stuff now.

Brownie Batter Krispie Treats.

They just seem too obvious, but they had to happen this week.

You all knew I was going there.

So it’s basically not even a recipe.  It’s a dump-some-brownie-batter-in-some krispie-treats tutorial.


And I even added some for-real brownies in there…
For good health and all that.
PhotobucketGet your butter and marshmallows all melty.
Add some dry brownie mix.
PhotobucketThen your krispies and chopped  brownies…
PhotobucketPress it into a pan and then let it cool.

Just a few minutes is all it takes.

Flip the pan over and here’s what you’ve got..
PhotobucketCut that bad-boy into squares and you are Brownie Batter Krispie magician.
PhotobucketReally, it basically makes itself.

I can so relate to your life! Why do they not listen when we speak normally??? It’s ok, you made brownie batter krispies! Just withhold the krispies until they listen the first time! And, we all knew a brownie krispie was coming for sure since you are the queen of krispies:-) These do look all sorts of awesome!!!

What a great week this is turning out to be! Love the “brownie” theme!

June 26, 2012 4:46 pm

Days like that are when I find myself saying “Well I wouldn’t BE nagging if you’d do it the FIRST time I asked!!!” I’m getting ragey just thinking about it ;P

So the dry brownie mix that I can get is a just-add-water type thing. Do you think it’ll work for your brownie batter loveliness or is the dried egg and vegetable oil gonna make it funny? (or should I test and return to you with results?)

Oh man, I totally get you. I hate that 400th time, because it’s usually a yell and then there are tears or anger or whatever and “jeez mom you don’t have to yell at me!” Then my head really spins off its axis. I love how you put brownie pieces in there, so yum!

oh my good gosh, i’m loving this series! i love how you incorporated brownie batter into the desserts i never would’ve thought to incorporate it in…lol, my mom is basically the type of person who does that nagging and won’t take me not listening to her opinion for an answer..gets pretty annoying!

The bad part is when I finally make my husband look up from his ipad in the recliner to deal with whatever Jon David isn’t listening about…

Then he looks at me like I’m crazy because OF COURSE, he thinks it’s the first time I’m asking. Also, just because you say things directly IN FRONT of a man, if it isn’t actually TO them, they don’t hear it. It’s like a scientific fact.

I wish I had one of these krispies right now…

Who am I kidding, I want the whole dang pan.

Just when I thought rice krispy treats couldn’t get any better! I have the krispies…just need to pick up a pack of mallows!

June 26, 2012 10:19 pm

I feel healthier just looking at these! I mean, rice krispies treats are like LIGHT desserts. At my world.

June 27, 2012 12:17 am

Wow – that sounds just like my house! At that point my kids say, “Mommy, you scare me when you yell.” Which is when I yell back, ” Why is it that you don’t listen to me unless I yell then?” UGH! So…next time I turn into crazy lady, I’ll make these and feel sane again 🙂
