recipe wednesday: grandma's triple decker brownies

 A delicious treat from Anne this week. 

 My Grandma used to make these brownies every weekend for my family.  We would always visit her on Sunday after church. On the way to her house we would stop by this local homemade ice cream shop called Charlaps and pick up a gallon of ice cream.  The combo of the triple decker brownie with ice cream is awesome.  I recommend a vanilla bean ice cream because the dessert is already very rich.  This dessert is a chocolate lover's dream!  The layers consist of a base of brownie, middle of marshmallow, and top of chocolate covered rice krispies and peanut butter.  Grandma knew the key to all our hearts, a big bear hug and dessert!  So if you have any loved ones that are stopping by this weekend, don't hesitate to whip up some of Grandma's brownies and give them each a bear hug too!

Thank you for posting my recipe, I just realized I forgot to mention the addition of peanut butter. To melted chocolate add 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Stir till both are thoroughly mixed. Then add in rice krispies. Sorry for the confusion.
