- 19 1/2 oz box brownie mix (and the ingredients it calls for)
- 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- For the Peanut Butter Layer:
- Your preferred amount of peanut butter
- Powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup of butter
- Begin by preparing the brownies. Follow the instructions on the brownie mix package and bake in a greased 13 x 9-inch pan. Once baked, allow the brownies to cool completely.
- While the brownies are cooling, prepare the peanut butter layer. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and 1/2 cup of butter. Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency.
- Spread the peanut butter mixture evenly over the cooled brownies. Place the pan in the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour.
- After the chilling period, it’s time to add the chocolate layer. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips with butter. You can do this either in the microwave or on the stovetop. Once melted and smooth, pour this chocolate mixture over the peanut butter layer.
- Allow the chocolate to set. For quicker results, you can place the brownies back in the refrigerator for another hour.
- Once set, cut the brownies into desired shapes and sizes. Serve and enjoy!
- Variations: Feel free to experiment by adding nuts, caramel, or even white chocolate drizzles for an added twist.
- Storage: These brownies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days. However, they taste best when consumed fresh.
- Serving Suggestions: Pair these brownies with a glass of cold milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an enhanced dessert experience.
