Peanut Butter Brownies

I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate. I’m sure someone out there doesn’t, but like I said, I haven’t met them.


Peanut butter and chocolate are meant to be enjoyed together, and throw in a brownie and you’ve got a match made in heaven!!

I used a large circle shape cookie cutter to cut these peanut butter brownies. You can cut them into squares straight from the pan, if you prefer. Or, grab a heart shaped cookie cutter if you’re making these for your sweetheart!


There are several steps involved with this particular recipe…consider yourself warned. 😉

  1. Oh my gosh, you are SO RIGHT… peanut butter and chocolate are supposed to be together. They are soulmates. This brownie takes the flavor combination to a whole other level. Love it!

  2. Thanks so much, Amanda!! 🙂

  3. I’m going to be completely honest. I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate. BUT… when you combine chocolate and peanut butter together its a whole other story. Brownies are also my weakness. I think I just really dislike plain chocolate. This brownie is the perfect treat!
