Day we go!

So no more excuses...the kids are all gone during the day, I have time on my hands, (for now) and I bake almost everyday. I am always so excited to share...even if its is only with pictures and recipes sometimes...that I have decided to start blogging. Yes, I am finally joining in the millions of legions of bloggers despite my computer tech...handicaps. (that's what my kids are here for right?) So today I am sharing with you a recipe for something sinfully chocolate and fun to eat....a little time consuming if you make the brownies from scratch, but worth it you will find.

Brownie Crunch Bars:

2/3 cup butter divided and melted
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 and 3/4 cups sugar
2 egg whites
1 and 1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (not really needed but why not?)

Combine cocoa and soda in bowl, add boiling water and whisk until combined. Slowly add 1/3 cup melted butter and hand mix. Add sugar and egg whites and continue to stir until thoroughly combined. Add the rest of ingredients..chocolate chips lastly. Bake in a parchment pined 9 x 13 inch pan at 350 for 26 min.

Take Brownies out of oven and top evenly with miniature marshmallows, return to oven for an additional 6 min. or until marshmallows are perfectly toasted.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Topping (the Crunch Bar part!)

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 spoonfuls of peanut butter
3 to 4 cups rice krispies

Melt semi sweet chocolate chips, add 2 big spoonfuls of your favorite peanut butter (peter pan all the way for us!) and the rice krispies...mix until well blended. Spread "crunch bar" topping over brownies and refrigerate until cool and set.

These are rich...cut into small squares and ENJOY!
