Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies are crazy good. The thick layer of peanut butter frosting on these brownies is what takes them right over the top!
Do we even have times for brownies this time of year? Is that allowed?
All through December, it seems to be all cookies, all the time. Then comes January, it’s like we better not even look at something chocolate, let alone eat it. Well, I'm breaking the rules and I kind of like it!
By the second week of December, I get a little tired of Christmas cookies. I think to myself, hey, I'll go eat a vegetable or something! And then I go in the kitchen and look those vegetables in the face and laugh. I'm sorry, but vegetables grow in the ground. Where it's dirty. So, then I make brownies instead.
What? You don't get tired of one dessert and move on to the next, too? Sure you do! And if you don't, you should!
These brownies are utter perfection. They're an easy one bowl recipe from Alice Medrich and they are the best cocoa brownies I've ever tried.
I can't just do a plain brownie, though. Boring! I topped these off with some rich, creamy peanut butter frosting. It really takes things over the top. Be sure to smear it on in a nice thick layer, though. I mean, what is life without extra frosting? Especially when it means you’re bringing together that match made in heaven, peanut butter and chocolate.
Let’s be honest – there aren’t many combinations that make you smile like peanut butter and chocolate. So who cares if it’s January and we’re all supposed to be on some sort of diet. Everything in moderation, folks. Because peanut butter frosted brownies are worth their own resolution all together.
