Chocolate crunch brownies

Every so often, I feel the need to post something that's truly brownie-related. Here's a nice recipe for you, from The Wife's family cookbook.

4 eggs
1 cup butter (you could use margarine, but why would you do that?)
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 cup flour
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow creme
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (Ghirardelli works especially well...)
3 cups Rice Krispie cereal

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar; add eggs. Stir in cocoa, flour, vanilla and salt. Spread onto a greased 9X13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until brownies test down. Cool. Spread marshmallow creme over cooled brownies. In a small saucepan, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in the cereal. Spread over marshmallow layer. Chill before cutting. Store in refrigerator.
