From the Kitchen of Apartment 8 – Peanut Butter Frosted Reese’s Brownies

Peanut Butter Frosted Reese’s Brownies

If you ask me, some of the best desserts involve chocolate and peanut butter!  Last night we were having friends over for dinner and I wanted to make something simple with items I had on hand and this is what I came up with!

Brownies:

I used a dark chocolate brownie mix.  Feel free to insert your own homemade brownie recipe, but the boxed stuff worked for us!  

Frosting:

  • 3/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons of Room Temperature Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar

Use a mixer to beat it together until the desired consistency is achieved.  Add a little milk if it’s too sticky.

After the brownies are cool, frost and top with chopped up Reese’s cups (a good way to get rid of leftover Halloween candy…though I guess on a positive note, at least we still have some leftover!) and sprinkle over the top.  My preference is to refrigerate these before serving, but room temperature works too.  Enjoy!
