Peanut Butter Brownies

So if I could choose one dessert to eat for the rest of my life it would most likely be brownies. They are one of the only ways that I enjoy chocolate on it’s own.

Now I like me a good chocolate cake once in awhile but I usually am not a fan of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting unless its my Triple Chocolate Cake. Sometimes there is such a thing as too much chocolate in my personal opinion.

So let me tell you about these Peanut Butter Brownies. Well for one they are addicting and AMAZING. There really are no more words that you really need to describe these pieces of heaven.

Another thing is that they are semi-homemade. Now I know in previous posts I’ve had conversations about how I am not against anything semi-homemade ever.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

I don’t always have the time to bake from scratch so using a boxed mix for some desserts is a necessary and ultimately delicious option such as these chocolate peanut butter brownies.

If you do want to make this more homemade then this brownie recipe will do wonders, it’s one of my favorite recipes ever! The base of this brownie goes great with pretty much any topping or mix in that you want. They are thick and fudgy just how I love my brownies.

Ok anyways, let me tell you a little bit more about these bad boys. They are a brownie base, a peanut butter topping, creamy chocolate frosting and then a light coat of powdered sugar.

I actually got this recipe from my friend who lives down the road. He likes to bake in his spare time and he was telling us about these brownies that he had made so we made him go get them and feed them to us, and I’m so glad that he did because they are delicious.

How simple is that list? Literally, we usually keep all those ingredients in our pantry and any given time. Like I said I’m a brownie person so I always have to have a box on hand when I’m feeling a little lazy and want to whip something up super quick.

These brownies do require a little chill time, but they are 100% worth that wait. I don’t think that I’ve had such a good dessert like this one in a long long time. So that is tell you something, I’m like the dessert queen, I always go to bed with a sweet snack, every day.
