Smucker's Peanut Butter Brownies

"These are absolutely wonderful! I have never made them myself but I used to work with a lady who had made them a couple of times and brought them to work. I just had to have the recipe for this one. These are also very rich but so good."

  1. I used Creamy Jif and added a shake of cinnamon and a little bit of vanilla to the actual batter and popped these in the oven for 28 minutes; they came out just how I like my brownies. They were "fudgy" in the sense that they were extremely dense and moist. Also, I omitted the frosting because I'm not a big fan of frosting on brownies in general. Delicious!
  2. I made these this week because everyone has given up chocolate for lent. The frosting is to die for! Please consider making this recipe as you won't be disappointed!
  3. Excellent!!!! Made these to take to a get-together with friends and got rave reviews. So nice to have an alternate to your typical chocolate brownies...will definetly be making these again and again. Thnx for geat recipe!
  4. these are fairly easy to prepare, but definetly add the more milk to the icing - it is too thick otherwise. you've definetly got to like peanut butter! and my kids absolutely love them!!


Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
