Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies #recipe

A couple weeks ago I saw a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies over at The Farm Girl.  I could not get in the kitchen to make these fast enough.  I was trying to come up with all sorts of excuses why I needed to make them.  The one I ended up going with?  I had a meeting with my son’s teacher after school, and since she teaches first grade, she definitely deserved a brownie or two.  Turned out my in laws came the next day as well, so it actually worked out well.  Even my Father-in-law, who almost never eats dessert, loved these.  He was trying to corner the market on the couple that were left.  My husband, who isn’t a big fan of chocolate ate them as well!  So I suggest you come up with whatever excuse you need, and go make them now!  You will not be disappointed.

I admit, I did adapt the recipe slightly.  I used my normal brownie recipe for the base.  Because this was last minute (and I am trying to clean out my kitchen due to the pending move) I didn’t have any chocolate chips. Although I did find 3 Hershey Bars in my cupboard from a camp fire we had this summer.  So I used those for the glaze.  I also added a little peanut butter frosting drizzle on the top… just because.  Well actually I had a tiny bit of frosting left over from something else, so I added a little peanut butter, thinned it out, and drizzled until my heart’s content.  I like drizzles!  And I liked these brownies.  Go!  Make!  Them!  Now!

    This looks so YUMMY!!! Thanks for sharing. =)

    If I made this, I would probably have to hide a few pieces for myself because both my daughters and my husband would devour it by themselves. Regular brownies only last one day in the house. LOL
