Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Together. Does it get much better?
I cannot make these peanut butter truffle brownies very often, because the peanut butter chocolate combination is very hard for me to resist, in any form. I am magnetically drawn to these brownies, and they are magnetically drawn to my hips. 😉
So I only make them when I need to take a treat somewhere. They are always a hit. The brownie layer is nice and moist, and the peanut butter truffle layer is amazing. You could just eat it alone and be happy. But paired with the brownie and dark chocolate drizzle on top, it is a small slice of heaven on earth.
Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
3/4-1 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups oil
3/4 cup milk
Combine all ingredients in order listed and mix till smooth. Pour into a well greased 15×10″ jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Cool completely.
1/4 cup soft butter
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
5-6 Tbsp milk
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2-3 Tbsp vegetable oil
Beat butter and peanut butter together. Add powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, and enough milk till mixture is creamy. It will be thicker than regular frosting. You can kind of spread and pat it onto the top of the brownies with the back of a spoon.
For the topping, combine 2 Tbsp of the oil and the chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave at 50% power till melted, stirring often. Add more oil if needed. Drizzle over the top of the brownies.
