Triple Layer Brownies

These might be my favorite dessert recipe on The Beard and The Baker. One of my favorite bloggers, What’s Gaby Cooking has a few recipes for “slutty brownies” and this is just a little variation of those. Instead of oreo’s in the middle of these triple layer brownies, we are using rice krispies! Have you all ever wondered where Home Goods gets all those fancy foods? I read this article once about how they source their food and it was pretty interesting. All of their food items are carefully bought and more carefully crafted than you think. So, next time you are in there and you see a giant bag of gourmet baking cocoa, snag a bag or two. I love homemade brownies. I think they are seriously the best. But, I find the batter so weird. How can something so weird and thick and ugly end up being the most delicious dessert? 
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to put cookies on the bottom or brownies on the bottom. Instead, I did both. Make sure you butter your pan or put parchment down first because nobody wants sticky brownies. Now for the middle layer! Typical “slutty brownies” have oreos or candy in the middle but instead who are making rice krispies. Also, maybe I shouldn’t call these “slutty brownies” and instead something a little more feminist sounding. Or maybe I’m thinking into it too much. Probably, that one. These rice krispies get real sticky, real fast. Make sure you mix them up quickly. Then, you can just set them aside until you finish up the other layers. You can use a spatula to try and spread the rice krispies on top of the brownies if you’d like. I would recommend actually just using your hands to smoosh them. It will be way easier since they get so sticky. Guys, I have a confession to make. I hadn’t used a hand mixer in I don’t even know how long. I literally always use my stand mixers. That’s probably embarrassing but whatever. I used a hand mixer this time around and it wasn’t the worst thing in the world. I think I’ll keep to my old ways though. Definitely less messy. I didn’t have any chocolate chips handy but luckily I had some mini chocolate bars around. Thank you leftover Halloween candy! Just chop some of those in half and voila, chocolate chips. To keep things even, I used a cookie scoop to top the brownies off. Again, just use your hands to smoosh the cookie dough into a nice even layer. Easy peasy. Just a side note that if you make the brownies on top, you might need to keep them in the oven for another 5-10 minutes. And ta-daaa! Triple layer brownies are done and delicious and literally I want to eat them all again. These are actually super perfect for all those fun cookie swaps you have going on this December. Make sure to use the #TheBeardAndTheBaker when you make these yummy little treats this holiday season!
