Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Look at that picture! Just look at it!

Do I really need to say anything about these Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies??

Ok, fine ~ I will.

Super fudge-y.

You cannot eat just one and that is a promise.

They do not need icing, but a little ganache never hurt anyone!

I love these warm, cold, for breakfast or a late night snack.

This brownie is the perfect treat to satisfy any sweet tooth.

I recommend to make them and hide some in the freezer so no one else can get to them, since this entire batch may be gone in less than the time it takes to bake them!

Now Get Going!!

Oh, and PS~ those who cannot do (or do not like Peanut Butter) you can substitute Nutella! Same quantities! No adjustments!

  14. With a small spatula or a butter knife, swirl the peanut butter batter through the entire surface of the brownie.
  15. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven on the center rack for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs on it. If the toothpick comes out dry, your brownie will also be dry. If the toothpick still has gooey batter on it, then your brownie will also be gooey in the center.

  1. Hey Gretchen,

    These definitely look delish! I was wondering, if I was to bake this in a 10 inch round cake pan, would I pour 1 batch complete in the pan or divide into 2 10 inch pans?

    Thanks for sharing all these delicious treats as usual!

  2. Just made your cupcake version and everyone who tried it (me included) thought it was great.
    Couldn’t find search facility on new designed website. I hope it hasn’t gone as I found it invaluable when looking for specific recipes

    Regards
    Mike
