Best Brownies EVER!

So, I don’t know about you, but I have a weakness for chocolate and peanut butter (and basically anything sweet but we’ll just stick with those two for now). When I found this peanut butter frosted brownies, I knew I had to share it so you guys could try them (I’m actually on prep for a bikini bodybuilding show so I can’t even eat them but trust me I’ll be making them after prep).

I hope you enjoy these!!

Ingredients:

  • Brownie mix and whatever else the mix needs (usually oil, eggs, water)
    • You can make brownies with a recipe if you want but that seemed like a lot of work
    • Try getting the fudgy ones with chocolate chips for maximum chocolateyness
  • 1 tbsp grounded coffee (I got mine from a Kerig K-cup)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
    • If you want to get fancy and play with textures go ahead and try crunchy pb
  • 2¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips
  • a splash of milk if needed

Procedure:

  1. Mix brownies according to box or homemade recipe. Add in 1 tbsp of grounded coffee (your brownies won’t taste like coffee, this just enhances the chocolate flavor of the brownies).
  2. Bake as instructed and allow to cool.
  3. For the frosting,  cream butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. If you are using natural peanut butter that has been in the fridge, let it stand for 5 minutes so it’s smooth and creamy, or microwave for 10 seconds.
  4. Add in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and mix until smooth and even.
  5. For the drizzle, melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave in 15 second intervals until melted (be careful not to burn it like I did). Add the milk if needed to make creamier.
  6. Put chocolate in a ziplock bag with corner cut.
  7. Frost brownies and drizzle chocolate as desired.
  8. Devour the brownies and don’t tell your friends you made them so you can eat all of them with no regrets.

That’s all, happy baking!
