Tasty Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

Tasty Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour

frosting

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use Jiff)
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Tbsp heavy cream (possibly a bit more)
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted confectioner s sugar (possibly a bit more)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper with long ends so you can lift the brownies out for easier frosting.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat and then add the chocolate chips stirring constantly until they melt too.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder and sugars and blend well. Whisk in the eggs one at a time then the vanilla and salt.
  4. Fold in the flour and then spread evenly in the pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes. The top should look set and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out without wet batter clinging to it (fudgey crumbs are ok) Try not to over bake.
  5. Cool the brownies completely before frosting.
  6. To make the frosting beat the butter and peanut butter together until fluffy and well combined. Beat in the vanilla and cream then add the sugar a cup at a time and beat until smooth and creamy. If the frosting seems too thin add a little more sugar and if the frosting seems too stiff add a little more cream. Spread generously over the cooled brownies.
