Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies are rich and fudgy and filled with peanut butter morsels. I topped them with a fluffy peanut butter frosting and loads of Reese’s peanut butter cups. The ultimate brownie!
Today I’ve joined up with some of my friends to share some Reese’s and Hershey’s holiday treats. At the end of today’s post, check out some of these delicious recipes for your holiday baking!
But first, let’s talk chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a classic pairing. I don’t know about you, but when there is a cookie tray for the holiday set out on a table, it seems the chocolate peanut butter desserts ALWAYS go first.
Or is it my imagination? Am I the only one wishing people would snatch those fruitcake slices and leave more brownies for me?
Some other classics?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Miracle on 34th Street (the original of course). White Christmas. A Christmas Story.
And of course, Yogi Bear’s First Christmas.
Yes, it’s by far my favorite Christmas cartoon! Have you seen it? I wish it would be shown every day during the holidays!
What are some of YOUR favorite holiday movies?
Love Actually, ELF, and Home Alone are always some of the most viewed in our house this time of year!
Let’s talk about those cookie trays? If you’re looking for a delicious dessert that will be the talk of the cookie exchange, trust me when I tell you to make these brownies!
The chocolate, fudgy brownies on their own are delicious. I added some Reese’s peanut butter morsels for that extra crunch in the brownies (tell me YOU love chocolate chips or PB morsels in your brownies too???).
I then topped these brownies with a light fluffy peanut butter frosting. If that wasn’t enough for you, the extra Reese’s peanut butter cups on top are sure satisfy that holiday sweet tooth!
