Chocolate Fudge Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting













They’re moist, fudgy, chewy and chocolatey just like a Brownie should be.  Brownies should be moist and chewy with a slight crisp on top.  I make the perfect simple brownie and then I pipe on some decadent Peanut Butter frosting to make them the best brownie combination in the world.  These are so good, you’ll think you died and went to Heaven.  And don’t forget the ice cream when they first come out of the oven.  OMG.

Chocolate Fudge Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with baking spray. Then line it with parchment paper allowing a little overhang on the sides to making lifting easier.





















Whisk together melted butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk in the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder.  Spread batter evenly into greased baking pan.























Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for about 20 minutes before slicing.


Peanut Butter Frosting


5 Tablespoons butterat room temperature

1 cup creamy Peanut Butter

1 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup heavy cream

Combine the peanut butter and the butter in the bowl.  Using a hand mixer, mix them until well combined. 


















Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt and turn the mixer on low speed until they’re incorporated. 

Finally, stream in the heavy cream, and then increase the mixer speed to high, beating until the peanut butter frosting is light and smooth.












When the brownies are completely cool, cut them into small squares. You will get the cleanest cuts if you chill them before cutting them.

You can either spread the frosting in a thin layer on top of the brownies, or put it into a piping bag fitted with a wide star tip, and pipe individual stars or rosettes on top of each square.
