Frosted Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

Truth be told, I’m a huge chocolate fan! Oddly enough one of my daughters is and always has been a chocolate hater! HOW I do not know?!? As she was growing up I went out of my way to avoid baking chocolate desserts. I’d save my chocolating (Is that a word? It should be!) for when we were out and I’d order dessert.

This brings me back to these brownies at hand, Frosted Peanut Butter Chip Brownies is a recipe that I had WRITTEN down by hand on a piece of paper a zillion years ago before Pinterest. Into the “recipe binder” it went along with 735,824 other ripped out of magazines and handwritten recipes that I had accumulated.

Well, I made them again after all the years of avoiding chocolate dessert baking and I was floored by how darn good they are! Now, of course, you can buy a boxed brownie mix and make some awfully tasty brownies, I do it all the time. But…you know as well as I do that homemade is often far superior and this recipe is just that case.

What you have is a tender brownie batter which is made extra yummy with the addition of cream cheese. Mix in some peanut butter chips for the ultimate flavor combination and bake away. The brownies on their own are simply YUM! Wait though, it gets better! Now you whip up some homemade from scratch, don’t open a tub of store-bought frosting and slather it on top! I’m telling you these are heavenly.

Now my only words of advice, find a friend, take to a party, give 1/2 the pan away…these are delicious but decadently satisfying. Perfect for parties, you’ll find a pan of these goes a long way and I will guarantee you’ll make some friends if you bring these. So, yes…bring these to the Super Bowl party you just got invited to. Bring these for teacher appreciation week at school, they are amazing and need to be shared!

    Are the chips stirred in just prior to putting dough in the pan? This sounds yummy!
