Peanut Butter Brownies with Peanut Butter & Chocolate Frosting

While looking through a massive gallery of food pictures that I had uploaded onto my laptop, I stumbled upon a few pictures of some peanut butter brownies that I had made a couple of weeks ago that I never got around to posting. {What an outrage! πŸ˜‰ } Normally when I make a batch of any baked goods {cupcakes, brownies, cookies}, the last one or two won’t get eaten if it’s just for Joe and myself or I forget to bring the rest to work. {Come on, we’re not totally pigs… Sometimes 12 mini cupcakes is just TOO much to eat!} But somehow, these little guys were cleared off of the plate, crumbs and all, within the evening that they were made. {Joe really can’t resist anything with peanut butter! Yes… It was all Joe… *shifty eyes*…} So to make sure this recipe doesn’t get lost in amongst the many scraps of paper that hold my random recipes, {and to give you all a chance to try these if you wish!}, here is my recipe for some tasty peanut butter brownies with a chocolate peanut butter frosting. Enjoy! πŸ™‚ This recipe makes 12 mini cupcake-sized brownies. {I used a mini cupcake tin with mini cupcake cups.}

Peanut Butter Brownies with Peanut Butter & Chocolate Frosting

Ingredients:

Method:

  • Pre heat the oven to 350 F.
  • Line a mini muffin pan with paper liners. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safeΒ bowl, microwave the peanut butter and milk on high at 15 second intervals. Stir at each interval for a few seconds, and repeat this until all is melted together.
  • After it’s melted, allow to cool for a minute.
  • Add in the sugar, vanilla and eggs, and mix well.
  • Add in the flour, and mix just until combined.
  • Place about 1 tbsp of batter into each mini muffin cup. {Or however much it takes to fill up each cup just below the top.}
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, removing from the oven once a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with a couple of moist crumbs attached. The tops will appear somewhat dry and shiny.
  • Remove from the muffin tin, and allow brownies to cool on a rack. Frost when cool.
