PB & Chocolate Brownies

My latest baking foray....

Check out these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Triple Layer Brownies!  I subscribe to a bunch of e-newsletters that fill my inbox with recipes, which I usually file away in a folder, never to see the light of day.  Yet this one I had to try - and had most of the ingredients on hand, so why not?  They came out pretty well, I do say.  What do you think?  Want a taste? 

1pkg. (19 to 21 oz.) brownie mix (13x9-inch pan size)
1cup cold milk (I used almond milk because that is what I had - it worked)
1pkg. (3.4 oz.) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding (I had a smaller package and it seemed to do the trick just fine)
1cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2cup powdered sugar
1-1/2cups COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
3squares Semi-Sweet Chocolate (I had some semi sweet dark chocolate and used that)
1/2cup Dry Roasted Peanuts, coarsely chopped (I had slivered almonds - those worked fine too)

PREPARE and bake brownies in 13x9-inch pan as directed on package; cool.
Meanwhile, beat milk and pudding mix with whisk 2 min. Add peanut butter and sugar; mix well. Refrigerate until brownies are completely cooled.

SPREAD over brownies; refrigerate.

MICROWAVE COOL WHIP and chocolate on HIGH 1 min., stirring every 30 sec. Spread over pudding; top with nuts. Refrigerate 1 hour.


  1. MAN, that sounds delish!
    I would do ANYTHING for some of those! (short of actually cooking them myself) ... *thinking-face* ...

  2. Thanks EJ! You know, if you're up for a PB & Chocolate brownie fix that is a little easier, just use a boxed mix of brownies and toss in some reese's mini peanut butter cups. So good! And easy.

  3. Why weren't any of these brought into the office? I'm devastated.
