  • Chewy Chocolate & Peanut Butter Brownie recipe - in just a few minutes! You'll never buy another box mix!

    There are few combinations I love better than peanut butter & chocolate. They go together like peanut butter & jelly, only better! I can eat chocolate & peanut butter year round, but there’s something about fall that has me craving it even more! It’s a simple twist on my 5 minute brownie recipe that will make you wonder why you ever purchased a box mix! Of course, made from staple ingredients, these peanut butter brownies are a great quick fix to any chocolate craving! Today is recipe #3 in fall baking week! I’m so excited for the next 2 & know you will be as well!

    Let’s get a close up, shall we?

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies in minutes - you'll never use another mix!

    I rarely have icing bags – I refuse to wash them & am always of disposables. I just add my peanut butter icing to a ziplock bag & snip a corner to “pipe” the ganache across the brownies. The only award I’m going for is best taste! The crushed peanut butter cups cover any flaws. For pretty crumbles, freeze your peanut butter cups for 30+ minutes {is it horrible that I keep a pack in there for a rainy day?} & cut them.
