Peanut Butter Brownies

Two great tastes that taste great together, peanut butter and chocolate. You can never wrong with this combination, at least not in my book. It was a special day at church today. We were having a baptism and a BBQ immediately following service today. So I wanted to make sure we had extra good goodies for the cart, and for dessert after. I made some chocolate peanut butter brownies as well as the lemon glazed cookies for the occasion. Lemon Glazed Cookies They were both a big hit, especially the brownies. They all disappeared very quickly.

Peanut Butter Brownies

For the brownies themselves, I used the Ghirardelli Brownie Mix and just followed the recipe on the box. They are already perfect, so why mess with perfection, right?! πŸ™‚

The Peanut Butter Topping

3 TBSP melted butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine all the ingredients together well and set aside until ready to use.

Preheat the oven to 325* F or about 165* C.

Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray.

Make the brownie mix according to the directions on the package and spread evenly in the prepared baking pan.

Add dollops of the peanut butter mixture all over the top of the brownie mix.

Gently drag a butter knife through the peanut butter mixture and swirl on top.

Bake for about an hour or until a toothpick that is inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Allow to cool completely before cutting and removing from the pan. And ENJOY!!!! You can never go wrong with brownies. I think brownies always disappear very quickly, no matter what the occasion.

Juneau and Vinnie were happy with this recipe too because they got to empty the peanut butter jar. At first Juneau wasn’t sure what to do with the jar, but she quickly learned from Big Brother Vinnie, and was a pro in no time at all.

Vinnie said this is definitely NOT his first time with a peanut butter jar, and he knew exactly what to do with it.

Peanut butter days are just as much fun as ice cream days.

Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. Enjoy your days as if they are all peanut butter days. ‘Til next time.
