If you’re trying to be healthy, look away. If your European tastebuds don’t appreciate the salty deliciousness of peanut butter, come back tomorrow. But, if you think chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven, then you’ve come to the right place!
Making brownies from scratch is really easy. I made these ones from scratch, but in all honesty I prefer Ghiradelli triple chocolate brownies from a box. I don’t know what kind of voodoo magic they put in those boxes, but they’re far better than anything I could make from scratch. So, use any brownies you like, the real star here is the peanut butter frosting. And it’s so easy.
First, I have to give a shout out to my husband who found this recipe for a men’s cooking competition at church. He didn’t win, but he should have.
6 Tbsp softened butter
3/4 c peanut butter
1 c powdered sugar
Cream the butter and peanut butter and then mix in the powdered sugar. That’s it! This makes enough for an 8×8 pan (if you don’t eat too much of it before it makes it to the brownies!) You can also sprinkle with a little bit of sea salt after they’re frosted.
