here and knew I just had to try them. I changed it up a bit to make them perfect for us. And they are a perfect little piece of heaven let.me.tell.you. Here's what you need to get started:
1 box brownie mix (19 oz)
1/2 block of cream cheese (4oz), softened
1/4 Cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 Cup peanut butter
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
Your favorite chocolate frosting
Coarse salt (optional)
Start off by mixing the brownie mix, egg, cream cheese, butter and vanilla together in a mixer on medium until well combined. Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. During that time, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and turn the oven on 350 degrees. Then combine the peanut butter and powdered sugar together. Set both aside.
Once dough is ready, form into small balls and place them on the baking sheet. Wait about 3 minutes, then press your thumb into each ball to give it a good indention (the mixture won't be as sticky after it sets a few minutes). Fill the indention with the peanut butter mix, pushing the peanut butter down a bit, and place in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire rack, then top with a heaping of chocolate frosting. Sprinkle on the salt (or not) and enjoy! If you try these out let me know how it goes. We gobbled them up as soon as the pictures were done.
Thanks for stopping by!
