Peanut butter and chocolate, yum! I got this recipe from a 2005 isuue of Womans Day magazine and its presentation is nice enough for serving to guests or just treating yourself to a bit of indulgence. They're very rich, so don't let the small 9" pan size fool you ;)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350*. Line a 9-inch quare pan with foil, letting foil extend above pan on opposite sides and coat foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare brownie mix as package directs for fudgy brownies. Stir in peanut butter chips and peanuts, spread evenly in prepared pan.
  3. Bake 30 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  4. Filling: Beat peanut butter, marshmallow cream and butter in a medium bowl with mixer on high speed until well blended. Reduce speed to low, add confectioners sugar and beat until blended. Spread evenly over brownie.
  5. Glaze: Microwave chocolate and butter, stirring at 30-second intervals, until melted and smooth. Cool slightly; stir in corn syrup. Spread evenly over filling layer. Refrigerate 1 hour until filling is firm and glaze sets.
  6. Lift foil by ends onto a cutting board. Cut in 6 rows lengthwise and 6 crosswise.
  7. Refrigerate in a container with wax paper between layers up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.

How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate?? These are delicious, though a little too thick for me. I made them in a 8" pan (I don't own a 9") and I can barely open my mouth wide enough bite them (and who wants to eat them in layers...?) So, next time, I will make them in a slightly larger pan so they're not quite so thick. That said, I will certainly make them again!

Holy cow. I love the chocolate/peanut butter combo in anything , but these are over the top delicious. I am so glad I had the foresight to freeze half the batch. Great , easy to follow directions , with the times spot on for me. Thanks for posting such a great indulgent dessert!! :)
