Chocolate, peanut butter, macadamia nuts, and marshmallows in a decadent brownie. What more could you want? You may wish to cut these cookie bars smaller than usual, because they are quite rich and decadent, almost like eating a candy bar. Feel free to substitute your favorite nuts such as peanuts or cashews.

1 package family-style brownie mix
2 cups mini-marshmallows
1 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
