I've taken a brief hiatus from blogging (and any meaningful cooking, really). My late summer/early fall has been crazy! We've had something going on every single weekend since mid-August and it won't stop til mid-October. EEK! Anyway, I've made a few goodies since my last blog and finally downloaded the pictures off my camera, so I figured it was about time I start blogging about them. So, here goes:
We went to my husband's parents house for dinner a couple weeks ago and I decided to bring dessert. I let my husband pick out what he wanted to eat, and he picked out peanut butter fudge brownies. They were wonderful - I think my father-in-law ate about 5 of them and my mother-in-law wanted the recipe. ;)
Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies
Original Recipe taken from cooks.com, but I adapted it just a tiny bit.
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa
½ tsp baking powder
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Add eggs and mix well with spoon.
Combine flour, cocoa and baking powder. Blend into egg mixture.
Spread into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
Meanwhile, melt the peanut butter over low heat. Drizzle over the top of the brownies and cut into the batter.
Bake for 18 to 22 minutes until brownies begin to pull from edges.
* The original recipe called for 1 (18 oz) jar of creamy peanut butter, and said to frost the brownies with the peanut butter while still warm. Once the brownies cool, frost them with your favorite fudge frosting recipe. I'm sure that would've been good too, but I didn't want to bother. *
