Know what’s really delicious? Chocolate. Know what’s even better? Adding peanut butter to the party. Combine both of them together in a brownie and it’s close to heaven. If you’re my husband, you take that brownie and add a scoop (or 3!) of vanilla bean ice cream and you’ll be calling me all kinds of wonderful names!
It feels weird to call this a recipe, but it is. It’s a way of jazzing up regular ol’ brownie mix brownies just by adding some peanut butter to the party! Peanut butter and chocolate are a classic combination, sure to please the family. Or co-workers. Or neighbors. Or strangers. Anyone that you want to impress!
I, of course, make a double batch in my jelly-roll pan and it’s easy to do. Don’t have a half sheet baking sheet? Here’s the one that I have and LOVE! I love that it has a lid, which makes it very easy for transporting your baked goods.
Don’t want to make THAT many brownies? That’s okay – I’ve included directions for a normal 9×13 pan. But consider the half baking sheet! These brownies freeze very well. Once their cooled, I’ll cut and wrap individual servings (which, for my husband is 2 brownies) in plastic wrap and then stick all of them into a freezer-safe gallon bag. He’ll pull out a serving, heat it up in the microwave and add vanilla ice cream. He loves it. And that helps him love me!
