Peanut Butter Brownies

Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies

So last week, I was craving brownies. But I was also craving peanut butter. There is rarely a time I am not craving peanut butter. It’s my love language.

When I make brownies from scratch, it’s a process. I use melted chocolate, cocoa powder and chips. I like fresh eggs and butter. So it takes time. That’s why I keep my favorite brownie mix on hand. DM me if you want to know which one.

What I do is I always jazz up my brownie mix. Sometimes I add browned butter and sometimes it’s add-ins. But this time I wanted peanut butter. I also wanted peanut butter cookies. I decided to have it all. When you are reading the recipe, it says nutter butter cookies. I actually ordered the wrong ones, but they worked just as well. I hope you love these brownies!
