I got distracted while making these so excuse the lack of photos!
Make up your brownie mix as directed on the package. The recipe calls for a 13×9 pan but I used a square pan and they worked just fine!
Let the brownies cool and mix up the peanut butter layer (peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter).
Spread that over the cooled brownies.
Refrigerate it until the peanut butter layer is firm.
Melt chocolate chips and a little bit of butter and spread over the peanut butter layer. Leave it alone so the chocolate can set (this is really hard).
Cut into squares, put them on a festive holiday plate and share.
Jane, hope you enjoy these as much as my co-workers whom I shared a plate with…two of them immediately emailed me for the recipe!
Here’s the recipe…all nice and tidy.
19-1/2 oz. pkg. brownie mix
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. plus 6 T. butter, softened and divided
8-oz. jar creamy peanut butter
6-oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Prepare and bake brownie mix in a greased 13″x9″ baking pan according to package directions. Let cool. Mix powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter. Mix well and spread over cooled brownies. Chill for one hour. Melt together chocolate chips and remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Spread over brownies. Let cool; cut into squares. Makes 2 to 3 dozen.
