Brownie Goody Bars

Jump to recipe!

There is something to be said for an ooey, gooey chocolate brownie – sometimes we just need to indulge. These Brownie Goody Bars are super easy too! They start with a brownie mix (or make them from scratch if you like), topped with frosting and then to send them over the top – a mixture of peanut butter, chocolate chips and rice cereal.

I first tried these delicious Brownie Goody Bars a few years back when I visited Betty Crocker Kitchens. I’m not sure what I liked the best – the moist brownie on the bottom, the creamy frosting or the combination of chocolate and peanut butter with a little crunch on top.

Perfect for just about any occasion – they are easy to serve at potlucks or picnics, can be made ahead a day or so, great for a birthday celebration but elegant enough you could serve them at a dinner party.

    1. Thanks Carrian! Hope you like them!
      Happy Baking!

  2. SUPER DUPER YUMMY!! I want to run to the kitchen right now and make these. What a wonderful, and simple, idea to dress up brownies. You have a great site…I am happy to find you today at Ingredient Spotlight. I’ll be back I’m sure…

  3. Hi Liz,
    I just love these Goody Bars…someone shared them with us at Full Plate Thursday today. They really look good. I think I am going to try them. Thank you for sharing and have a great week end!

  4. Hello
    I have been a cake decorator, baker, florist and all around party planner for MANY MANY years now, way too many to say, and I’m new to your site. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE IT !! I haven’t had time to look thru a lot of it yet (Boy you have tons of info)but I love what I’ve seen so far.

    I remember back in the day my mom used to make bundt cakes. They were delicious and they always had some kind of filling in the middle. Nowadays you can’t find any recipe for those bundt cakes.
    I had an idea for St. Patrick’s day for a cake but don’t know how to make it.
    I would love to make a white cake with an Irish Cream filling in the middle. A filling like the kind in the middle of a Hostess cupcake, smooth & creamy. Is this possible ?? Do you or anyone have a recipe for something like this ??
    Thanks Cinde

  5. These are delicious… a friend of mine makes hers with marshmallow fluff instead of frosting in the middle… very yummy!

  6. I think I just figured out what to bake this weekend!

  7. These look really good and I know my four kids would like them too.

  8. I bookmarked these yummy brownie bars. I like using brownie mixes too, and my kids prefer them over homemade. Great recipe!

  9. These look really easy but so delicious! I’d definitely make the frosting from scratch but I think that is worth a few minutes of extra work.

  10. I love that you start with a brownie mix, it makes recipes like this so much easier. They sound wonderful.

    Sweet Tooth Friday is up, I hope you’ll stop by and link up!
