Better-Than-Crack Brownies (Treats For Co-Irkers)

Sometimes you come across a recipe that demands your immediate attention. Maybe you're sitting in rehab somewhere trying to find a substitute for crack. Maybe you're a suburban housewife who just needs a jolt of chocolate and peanut butter. I'm going to leave it up to you to decide which of the aforementioned I am, but in any event, I guarantee you that you're going to adore these treats. I'm hoping that the co-irkers adore them too.

I'm not even going to post the recipe here because I flagrantly and unabashedly stole it from Jessica at How Sweet It Is. I changed nothing in the recipe and the only additional thing you need to know is that you can pass any drug test after eating these.

You may be able to practice some self restraint but I knew IMMEDIATELY that my will power was non existent, so I'll be shuffling these goodies off to work with hubby tomorrow. They can decide if they belong in a crack house or not.

Thanks Jessica for sharing such a great recipe!

Moogie said...

Mags, I only have one question. How do you know it's better than crack? Mmmmm.... I'll be waiting for your answer over at Joe's Bar.

Marjie said...

We often succumb to cheese crack (curls) or potato crack (chips), but I've never had brownie crack before. I just love your title.

Jessica @ How Sweet said...

Hahahah! Aren't these the devil?! They are so good!

Pam said...

I could never, ever bake these and even think of giving any away.

Nanan said...

You crack me up!

Barbara Bakes said...

They do look irresistible. How could you send them away.

These bars look delicious!

Marisa said...

YUM YUM YUM! Bring on the crack, I say. ;-)

The Mom Chef said...

Rich, creamy, gooey, keeper.

Natalie said...

You said: "Sometimes you come across a recipe that demands your immediate attention." I'm currently trying, and failing, to avert my eyes from this post. If I wasn't already eating dark chocolate, as I am, I'd likely run off to the kitchen right now to make this recipe. Perhaps tomorrow. Early.

This is what happens when a brownie, a Reese's peanut butter cup, and a rice crispy treat get together for sweet monkey love. It's a ménage à trois of epic and sublime proportions.

Seriously, this makes it in the Coirkers top 5. Which when you look over the divine desserts with which we have been graced should tell anyone reading this to stop reading and start baking.

And make sure to share - it may make you as beloved as our own Mags.

Thank you our clever, cracktastic cameriere.

Oh, and Mags, if you ever need to stage an intervention with your next baking masterpiece, we're here for you.

Julie said...

Mags, these look amazing. Sitting here wishing I had something yummy. Wish I could grab one from the screen.

Laurie said...

Mags! You're killing me! Oh man ... I adore peanut butter and chocolate. Unfortunately due to a peanut allergy in our family I can't get my fix. But if I could ... this would be it! I'll just have to stare at the screen and imagine how they'd taste. Chunks of peanut butter cup with the crunch of Rice Krispies!?!? OMG!

Katrina said...

OOh, those DO look divine!

Shelby said...

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction said...

Oh my! I am catching up on my RSS reader after vacation, and I just saw these on Jessica's blog. Now I'm seeing them on yours... I am now considering a trip to the store for ingredients so I can make them tonight!

Debbie said...

Total addiction is what these look like!!!!

chayacomfycook said...

If you were a really good friend, you would make a package of these up, for each person who left a comment.

I wanted to make myself something, today, and maybe, this will be it.

I bake, almost exclusively for the hubby but I was thinking, I deserved something and why not some crack, of the brownie type.

megan said...

These look addicting and I would need a rehab center after baking these. Habit forming indeed!
