Peanut Butter Brownies with Fudge Frosting
While fruit desserts are common for the summer, I thought I would switch it up and stick with the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter. This has always been one of my favorite combinations, so I am glad to be baking with it more!
These peanut butter blondies are very easy to make and can be made with or without the fudge frosting. The frosting brings them to the next level (just look at it!) and adds an extra chocolate component, which is never a bad thing!
The peanut butter brownies themselves are a one bowl recipe that can be put together in a pinch. Once cooled top the chewy brownies with creamy, chocolate fudge frosting. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips or sprinkles and this will be the perfect summer treat for any picnic or barbecue.
I hope you enjoy making these chocolate peanut butter treats that are perfect for any summer occasion!
How to make peanut butter brownies from scratch
I used salted peanut butter, thus excluded any salt from the recipe. This works well but if you prefer to use unsalted peanut butter, just add a pinch of salt with the flour.
Using room temperature peanut butter allows you to easily mix it by hand into the wet ingredients.
For best results, allow the melted chocolate to cool until warm to the touch.
