About This Recipe

I love brownies in all forms. But I especially love them when they are layered with a fabulous filling and a creamy, rich frosting. My personal favorite flavor combination in a layered brownie is chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel.

And it’s easy to make your own homemade peanut butter caramel. All you do is combine brown sugar and corn syrup and bring it to a boil. then add some peanut butter. That’s it!

For this recipe, I add crunchy cereal and chopped peanuts to the peanut butter caramel mixture. And I use my best chocolate ganache to top the whole thing off – made with more peanut butter, of course!
