Ice Cream to Serve them With

For extreme peanut butter lovers, make Peanut Butter Brownies and top using this easy recipe.


You don’t need icing bags for a beautiful drizzle! Add icing to a condiment dispenser or to a sealable bag and snip the corner to “pipe” or drizzle across.

For the prettiest crumbles, freeze peanut butter cups 30 minutes or more. Using a sharp knife, cut into pieces.

Storage Notes

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies are best straight out of the oven and served warm. To store, bring to room temperature and place in an airtight container up to 5 days. To freeze, transfer to a sealable freezer bag and place in an airtight container and freeze up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature and warm to serve.
