I’ve been avoiding these brownies. I’ve been on a peanut butter and chocolate kick lately. First, with those brownies with fluffy peanut butter brownies, then those chocolate peanut butter clusters, and now these.
I may have a peanut butter and chocolate problem, but let me tell you, these. are. amazing.
Not to be bossy, but make these NOW.
These should be called something like Brownies of Insane Greatness or something. They are delicious! The crispy topping with the fudgy brownie and the salty crunch of the peanuts… Help, help me, Rhonda. They are about as decadent as they come, but completely delicious and (surprisingly) not too, too rich.
For a faster version, you can use a boxed brownie mix and proceed with the rest of the directions. If you have the time, though, I highly (H I G H L Y) recommend making your own. Also, the original recipe calls for the addition of 1 cup of chopped peanut butter cups with the peanuts. I’ve tried it with and without, and I actually prefer it without. If you prefer, however, go for it. Peanut butter cups or no, these are a fantastic, decadent, happy chocolatey dessert perfect for Valentine’s Day or any time.
…and I promise two things: 1) I will post something more artery-friendly soon, and 2) the next dessert I post will not be a chocolate-peanut butter something.Print
