Altered ingredient amounts.we used double cream instead of whipping cream, this turned out really nice.-28 Feb 2011

i followed this recipe to the letter. Even measured everything out into seperate bowls before I started. I dont see how the amounts can be right. The brownie mix was thick and sticky like cement so doesnt really spread like proper brownie mix would, and i've made a LOT of brownies before this! The topping was runny and is never going to set in a month of sundays and it looks nothing like the very misleading photograph which has a darker layer on bottom and top. Not what this recipe results in as the chocolate is in the middle :/-06 Apr 2014

this was a huge hit with the family. our 2 sons enjoyed joining in the making of this easy recipie. it will be a regular on the table.-28 Feb 2011

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Each sport has it’s own special type of fan. Whether it’s hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball, or football, fans show their love for the game in such unique ways. There is one fan trait that all sports share, the fan that thinks they can ref, coach or play the game better than the actual team. If you’ve ever been to any sporting event, you know exactly what I’m talking about. We’ve all seen the guys (and women too) who spring to their feet as soon as a whistle is blown. They wave their arms wildly and scream so loudly and with such force that veins pop out of their necks. Let’s be real, when you are sitting in the nosebleed seats, you are gonna have to yell pretty loudly to be heard above all the OTHER fanatical fans.

There is something so exhilarating about seeing a sporting event live. Aside from the “coaches” in the stands, you get to see the kids and their eager faces, the band, the music, the cheers, and even heckles. BUT, you also get beverages spilled on you from the overzealous fan next to you. You have to wait in line to use the bathroom. It could be 90 degrees or it could be 20 degrees with wind, rain or even snow. The bleachers are cold, hard and make your butt feel very flat and very numb. You pay way too much to park and even more to eat and drink. The food might be good, but nothing beats a good tailgating in your OWN home (with your own bathroom)!

Seriously, why deal with the crowds and the elements? Tailgate at home instead! Grab your family and your friends, fire up the bbq or start the slow cookers and EAT! You stay warm and dry and save yourself some $. Whatever you do, don’t forget about dessert! This chocolate peanut butter brownie is a must at any tailgate. It’s thick and rich with creamy peanut butter and peanut butter cups mixed right into the batter. The frosting is smooth, silky and absolutely decadent! This is a dessert you won’t find at any stadium!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Oh boy, I have the most decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie recipe to share with you! This one is way over the top delicious and is sure to make the chocolate peanut butter lovers in your life very happy. Let me show you how to make them.

They start with my recipe for homemade chewy, fudgy brownies. This time, I used a dark chocolate cocoa to make them extra chocolatey. If you are in need of a shortcut, feel free to use your favorite boxed brownie mix, and follow the recipe on the box for a 9 by 13 inch baking pan.

When the brownies come out of the oven, let them cool while you make the creamy peanut butter filling. Just mix together peanut butter, softened butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. It is similar to the inside of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, but a little creamier.

When the brownies have cooled for about an hour, they are ready to be topped. I like to use a cookie scoop to evenly distribute the peanut butter filling over the top, and then gently pat it into an even layer.

Now it’s time for the chocolate ganache! Just microwave a mixture of semisweet chocolate, butterscotch chips, and heavy cream until smooth and silky. It will be pourable when warm but will set on top of the brownies to a semi-firm consistency, almost like fudge. The butterscotch chips add a really nice balance to the dark and semisweet chocolate and compliment the peanut butter really well. You could also substitute peanut butter chips or milk chocolate chips instead of butterscotch if you prefer.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies can be chilled or kept at room temperature, but you may want to speed up the cooling time by popping them into the fridge for an hour or two after making them just. I think I prefer the texture when they are chilled. Be sure to use a plastic knife rather than a metal one to avoid having brownie stuck to the knife.

So fun to make my favorite brownies with a little something extra! We are enjoying spring break with the boys this week and these were the perfect thing to take along on all our adventures. Hope you all enjoy them as much as we did.

How to make easy peanut butter brownies

Step 1: Make brownie mix

Make brownie batter according to directions on package. Then pour about 2/3 mixture into the parchment lined pan.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies

Last week, I shared my favorite chewy fudgy homemade brownie recipe. My hungry fiancé and friends asked for them again (they’re that good), so today I bring you chewy fudgy homemade brownies, peanut butter style.

These brownies will blow your chocolate and peanut butter loving mind.

The idea is quite simple. Make my ultra fudgy homemade brownies. Stuff them with a peanut butter cup filling of sorts and top with… you guessed it… more peanut butter and chocolate. Sip a healthy smoothie as you go and then put on your fat pants. Prepare to overindulge it’s amazing.

I explain quite a bit of science behind making the perfect brownie here. Learn all about the chocolate to sugar to flour to egg ratio, and why each ingredient is so important. You can’t really bake my homemade brownies without a little background knowledge. After all, baking is like chemistry. Delicious chemistry.

Let’s discuss the peanut butter filling. It’s basically the same peanut butter filling that I use to make my Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter Bites. It’s a very, very thick filling – like a crumbly cookie dough. You’re going to grab chunks of it, flatten them out, and layer on top of brownie batter. It doesn’t have to be pretty. Mine certainly isn’t!

Then, top the peanut butter layer with the rest of the brownie batter. And press a few chocolate and peanut butter chips on top.

The brownies take about 35-38 minutes, or longer depending on your oven. Sometimes mine take 35 minutes, other times 40. My oven is full of surprises. Just keep your eye on them after 30 minutes a toothpick inserted in the center should come out with only a few moist crumbs. That’s when you know they are done.

Waiting for the brownies to fully cool will feel like a lifetime.

The brownie layer is fudgy and chewy, while the peanut butter layer is soft and dense. Kevin and I both thought the peanut butter filling was reminiscent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup filling. Yes, these brownies are basically a giant pan of Reese’s cups.

I made these brownies for my bud Erin. I’ve been dog-sitting her new puppy while she’s at work – he’s a goldendoodle and only weighs 6 pounds. His name is Chips, so naturally I call him Pickle Chips. I left today’s brownies for her and she said her coworkers gobbled them up in minutes! I’m absolutely not surprised. Breakfast of champions, ya’ll.

These insane brownies should really come with a warning label!

Cut into squares to serve.

These were really good. I took them out after 25 minutes, and they were perfect. I made them for a party and everyone loved them!

We LOVE this recipe! No one can believe that it came from Cooking Light. I have learned this recipe by heart we have made it so often. :)

I followed the directions exactly. The bottom is hard and the tops are not goey more like gluey. I don't think I'll make this again.

This is my go to brownie recipe. I make it often and everyone loves it and asks for the recipe. No one believes it's so simple to make! I'm craving some right now!

So good and yummy. My husband made these, first time he had ever make brownies, so I would say they were very easy. He accidentally doubled the peanut butter chips, just made them better. We also pulled them from the oven at 24 minutes because they were very done, next time I would only cook about 22 minutes. Other than that, we followed the recipe exactly and they were a hit!

These are sooo good! I subtracted a star b/c they are so ooey-gooey, and I feel the directions could help the cook tackle this problem a little better. Mine were almost near-impossible to cut, so the portion control stinks. THAT SAID, DELICIOUS!

These are by-far my favorite brownies and I almost always have the ingredients on hand when I'm craving something gooey & chocolately. Whenever I make them, it comes out perfectly following the recipe exactly and there are never any leftover when I bring them as "treats" for work parties, house parties, etc. VERY easy to make and cleanup is a snap. Feel free to make these a day in advance and store in an airtight container - they will stay moist with no worries. These are perfect little treats esp in the fall / winter - Enjoy!

These brownies are amazing! They came out perfect (I followed the directions of the users below and only baked for 20 minutes the second time). Definitely messy prep but the outcome is delicious & worth it.
