Here's a very simple, fake/home made recipe that will impress EVERYONE.
First off, make a box brownie mix of your choice. If you want thick brownies with lots of peanut butter on top, make an 8x8 or 9x9 pan. I was going to feed the masses, so I made a thin brownie layer in a 9x13.
The original pictures look more scrumptious because they're just plain bigger.
While that is baking, mix up your peanut butter mixture. Butter, PB, milk, and powdered sugar. Very similar to making the PB cups/eggs, but this has a creamier overall consistency. Much more spreadable.
Then, BEFORE you start the next step, put it in your fridge to harden up.
I didn't think about that step before I continued on.
It's an important step. Trust me.
If you don't wait for it to harden, like some of us I know, the chocolate will just make a mess when layered on top. It becomes more of a peanut butter and fudge swirl effect than a solid three layered one.
This isn't a bad thing, it's just, well, a thing.
And it makes for really bad photos.
However, the dessert is delicious, and I highly recommend it. I used a double fudge brownie recipe with chocolate chips included. Well worth it!
