Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

These brownies were OMGlicious!  You must make these ASAP.  Luckily, these are super easy to make.  I used a box of brownie mix for the base and made the peanut butter frosting on top.  The frosting only took a minute to whip up and tasted incredible!  These are pretty rich, so I suggest cutting these into small squares. The small squares also enable you to eat more without feeling as guilty (right? right?).  I used the new Jif Natural Honey Peanut Butter.  It gave the frosting a nice hint of honey (which I love). Make these brownies the next time you need a crowd-pleasing dessert; I guarantee they will fly off the plate.

  1. These look delicious! What kind of brownie mix did you use?

  2. Would crunchy peanut butter work for the icing? They look amazing!

  3. Lori - I used Ghiradelli triple chocolate brownie mix

  4. Starsky99 - I think crunchy peanut butter would be great!

  5. Would they need to be refrigerated since milk is in the icing? This is always something I've worried about. They look great. I'm a peanut butter fanatic!

  6. Super simple and super tasty. Two great tastes that go great together.

  7. Just made this...Creamy, smooth and perfect with brownies!
