THIS has been looming over me for the past month. Every time I checked something on my free calendar I got from Betty Crocker.com awhile back THIS luscious thing has been shouting at me...."MAKE ME! Come on....I know you wanna!"
Since we are going on vacation tomorrow I wanted something yummy to take with us. So I made these tonight.
Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies
from Betty Crocker.com
1 box (1 lb 6.5 oz) brownie mix
(Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on box)
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used the dark chocolate I had on hand)
1/2 stick of butter
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray or shortening. (For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan.)
2. In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, water, oil and eggs until well blended (I added about a 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to the batter.) Spread in pan. Bake 28 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
3. In medium bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownie base.
4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave topping ingredients uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds; stir until smooth. Cool 10 minutes; spread over filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set. For brownies, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
Definitely peanut butter cup on CRACK! Moist fudgy brownie underneath the creamy peanut butter. K-man loves peanut butter cups....he is going to be soooooo surprised when I pull these out!
See you all in a week.....we are off to Virginia Beach...I am going to see if I can find where Cassie (from How to Eat a Cupcake) lives and see if she will make me something....I will trade for these brownies!
