Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe

Are these the best peanut butter brownies ever? I’ll let you decide. I have tried a lot of different brownie recipes but peanut butter is a first. These were so rich, moist and delicious… I could eat them all day. These brownies are stacked. The chocolate brownie bottom is topped off with a peanut butter frosting but that’s not all, the peanut butter frosting is topped off with a chocolate glaze. You can drizzle the glaze over the frosting but I tripled the glaze amount and lightly spread it over the top completely. These can be a little expensive compared to most brownies but overall, the price isn’t bad. Chances are you probably have quite a few ingredients already (if you enjoy baking). It is important not the over bake the brownies otherwise they will not be as moist. I left mine in the oven for about 20 minutes. Enjoy.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ ounce semisweet chocolate

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan melt semisweet and unsweetened chocolates and butter over low heat. Cook until mixture is smooth. Set aside and allow the mixture to slightly cool.
  2.  In a medium bowl beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy and pale colored. Mix in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add flour, salt, and melted chocolate mixture. Stir to mix well.
  3. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13” baking dish. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (do not overbake).
  4. You will want to bake into a toothpick comes out almost clean (the toothpick should come out with some crumbs on it).
  5. Remove from the oven and allow the brownies to cool.
    While cooling, to make the frosting- In a mixing bowl add peanut butter and butter and beat until combined and smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar (1/2 cup at a time). The mixture will become crumbly.
  6. Blend in cream until the mixture is fluffy and has reached your desired spreading consistency. Evenly spread and chill until firm.

oh these brownies are such a tease! i see that you can use margarine for the glaze. have never baked with margarine before. does that make the glaze more syrupy or something? somehow the word 'margarine' makes me cringe. i just don't particularly fancy it. :D anyway, your brownies rock!
