Peanut Butter Brownies
||Cookies & Bars
||3 / 10
1/2 Cup - Butter or Margarine, softened
- Peanut Butter Brownie Frosting (below)
1 Cup - Sugar
1 tsp - Vanilla
2 - Eggs
1 1/4 Cups - unsifted all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp - baking soda
3/4 Cup - Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (or other brand)
1 Cup - Reese's Peanut Butter Chips (any PB Chips will do or even chocolate chips!)
Cream butter/margarine, sugar, and vanilla.
Add eggs; beat well.
Combine flour and baking soda; add alternately with chocolate syrup to creamed mixture.
Stir in peanut butter chips/chocolate chips.
Pour batter into greased 13x9x2-inch pan (I use a 9x9x2 pan, and it works just fine).
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes (depending on how soft or cake like you want your brownies, use a toothpick to tell).
Cool; frost with Peanut Butter Brownie Frosting. Makes 24 brownies (give or take).
PB Brownie Frosting
Combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup evaporated milk and 2 Tbsp butter in a small saucepan.
Stir over medium heat until mixture come to full boil; remove from heat.
Quickly stir in 1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Chips until melted (I use regular ol' creamy peanut butter, it works just as well.); and 1 tsp. vanilla.
Beat to spreading consistency; frost brownies. Cut into 24 brownies.
I personally use chocolate chips instead of PB chips in the brownies and I use regular Creamy Peanut Butter instead of PB chips in the frosting. It works just as well I think, plus you get a kind of Reese cup taste to it. (*See Picture)
