Gooey Fudgy Peanut Buttery Brownies

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Never has a combination of ingredients been more of a hit in my house than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s simply divine! And by divine I mean, if you leave me alone with a pan of something with the ever-famous combination, I will (with no shame, I might add) eat the whole entire pan. What can I say, I’m a chocolate/peanut butter addict. These are utterly delicious so I won’t chat endlessly about a bunch of random stuff today, but rather just share this recipe with you. Make it soon, and then invite me over to share the pan with you. :)


Gooey Fudgy Peanut Buttery Brownies

1 box (9×13 size) brownie mix

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup butter

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons cold milk

4 1/2 teaspoons instant vanilla pudding mix

1 can chocolate frosting

Make brownies according to package directions for a 9×13″ size pan, cool. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the sugar, butter, peanut butter, milk, and pudding mix until smooth. Spread over cooled brownies. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Frost with fudge frosting just before cutting.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed reading them! You’ll have to have some samples one day while you’re here teaching John Matthew. :)

    When you say to use 4 1/2 teaspoons of instant pudding mix I assume you are not using the whole box of the instant pudding mix and you are just putting that amount in the pudding/peanut butter mix layer…just let me know, I can’t wait to make them!

    No, I would definitely measure it to make sure it tastes just right. The packet most likely contains more than 4.5 teaspoons.
