A recipe for Chocolate Ooey Gooey Bars that everyone will love with brownies on the bottom, marshmallow cream in the middle and Cocoa Pebbles Bars on top.
Spring break and the Easter holiday are over. I hope you had a wonderful vacation. It was nice to have some time off of work and school but since we had to get back to the real world, I knew that something chocolate would make the transition a little easier!
If you like your bars to be nice, clean cut squares that look pretty on a platter, then this recipe isn’t for you. But if you are all about the ooey gooey goodness when it comes to chocolate desserts, then you have to try making these bars!
Start by making an 8×8 inch pan of brownies. You can use store bought or homemade brownies. (I used Betty Crocker Supreme Triple Chunk.) Remove the brownies from the oven and put spoonfuls of the marshmallow cream on top. Allow the marshmallow cream to heat and spread out on its own.
For the top layer, microwave butter for 20 seconds in a large bowl, until melted. Add mini marshmallows and stir to coat. Microwave for 45 seconds and stir until smooth. (If the marshmallows aren’t completely melted, microwave for an additional 30 seconds.)
Mix in chocolate crispy rice cereal. (I used Cocoa Pebbles.) Carefully spread the marshmallow cream out evenly.
Then, drop the chocolate crispy rice mixture by large spoonfuls over the marshmallow cream layer and carefully spread out evenly. I put my hand in plastic baggie with a little butter on it and gently spread it out and patted it down.
Allow the bars to cool and set before cutting them into squares.
These Chocolate Ooey Gooey Bars spread once they are cut, so you might want to wait to cut them until right before serving.
Ooey Gooey Bars are a favorite for kids of all ages. Zack is the biggest fan of ooey gooey bars and while enjoying these bars, he said “It’s like ooey gooey bars and brownies got married and had a baby!”
