Peanut Butter Brownies
What’s your go-to dessert if you’re craving something chocolate? Mine are BROWNIES. If you follow my blog you may have noticed that since I post brownie recipes quite often 🙂 Some of my favorite homemade brownie recipes include:
- Mint Brownies
- Zucchini Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting
- Caramel Poke Rocky Road Brownies
- Peppermint Candy Cane Brownies
These Peanut Butter Brownies are just as amazing as they look. I like to make them 1 day in advance because I think they taste even better after the brownies have had time to cool in the fridge. Or, if you want to save prep time, you could make the brownies a day in advance and then frost them the next day.
You can’t beat the peanut butter/chocolate combo, can you? Hopefully these completely satisfy your sweet tooth!
