Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies
contributed by Anne Evans, originally from Sweet Pea's Kitchen

Brownies
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

Peanut Butter Filling
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tsp milk

Ganache Topping
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream


For instructions, please visit the original site here.

My directions differ from the blog's: I use a boxed brownie mix for the bottom layer.  I accidentally used cream instead of milk for the peanut butter mix and it was fabulous.

These don't freeze great.  You lose a lot of texture and flavor.  Share with friends instead!!
