Awhile back I made thebestbrowniesever. And then I made them even better. And today I'm doing it again. If you love peanut butter and chocolate you'll definitely want to try these.
The frosting is not super peanut-buttery, but it complements these brownies perfectly. They are pretty rich so you really can cut them into "small squares".
None of this "half-the-pan-qualifies-as-one-brownie, right?", necessary.
Tell me you've done that too.
Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies
Frosting recipe from Your Cup of Cake
-1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-2 tsp vanilla extract
-3 cups powdered sugar
-3 Tbsp milk
Beat together peanut butter and butter until creamy and smooth. Add vanilla. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, slowly mixing after each cup. With mixer on low, add milk 1 Tbsp at a time until frosting becomes fluffy and to desired consistency.
Spread frosting onto cooled brownies using an offset spatula.
Refrigerate frosted brownies about 1 hour before cutting to set the frosting and make them easier to cut.
