Crunchy Top Brownies

One of the wonderful childhood memories that I have is coming home from a long day at school to a nice after school treat. In the years when I was a stay at home Mom I loved making special treats for my kids to have for their after school treats. This is my retro Crunchy Top Brownies that have severed as an after school treat for my kids plus many of their friends. This brownie is just like fudge on the inside with a little crunch on top. When I make these brownies they sure bring back so many great memories!

Crunchy Top Brownies
Miz Helen's Kitchen
1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
4 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
For The Topping
1/4 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Pour the 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder into a electric mixing bowl.
Add the melted butter and mix until smooth.
With the mixer running gradually add the flour and sugar alternating with each addition.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the vanilla extract, then add it to the brownie batter.
Pour the batter into a foil lined 9X13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the center test comes out clean.
While the brownies are baking, make the topping.
In a electric mixer bowl mix the 1/4 cup soft butter, milk, Cocoa Powder and powdered sugar, mix until smooth, then add the vanilla.
With a mixing spoon stir in the cereal until it is cover with the chocolate mixture.
Spread the topping on the warm brownies and let cool for at least 2 hours. 
(I know that the cooling time is a hard wait)
After the brownies have cooled then slice and serve.
