Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies

Davori Byrdsong


Every time I make these incredibly moist brownies, everyone simply gobbles them up. You might want to make an extra batch for home if you plan on taking them to any function/pot luck. You won't be leaving with any leftovers. Also, you can use as much or a little of the frosting as you wish. I normally spread it about 1/16" to 1/8" thick.

    1. Melt butter, salt, and chocolate square using a double boiler over hot, NOT BOILING, water, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool.

    2. Stir milk, vanilla, and cocoa powder into chocolate mixture.

    3. Using portable hand mixer or standing mixer with the whisk attachment, add sugar in three parts. Be sure to combine completely between installments, taking care to scrape the sides of the bowl.

    4. You may add more sugar to thicken or milk to thin if needed. This will spread easier at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate to store.
