My buddy Amy had deployed on assignment. We will be Amyless for about 6 months, and we are very sad! But when it was time to decide on a going away treat, well, what else could it be but…..peanut butter and chocolate!
Now usually I make my Amy a triple tiered chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate ganache. But since I was on a time crunch, I decided on brownies instead. This link will take you to a fannnnnnnntastic little thing that you will love…Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lover Brownies
Forgive my picture – I was winging this one after a tough night’s work, and had to get to bed quickly, so I’ve only got the one. But I will tell you, I collected a few more PB&C lovers with this one! When you read the recipe, you’ll see some wait time. Forget it – when you take the brownie layer out of the oven (don’t panic – it will be fluffy but will fall properly), go ahead and make your peanut butter layer and pour it on. I did go to bed at this point, and got up a few minutes early to do the ganache and cut up the Reese’s cups. Oh – and for goodness sakes, just use the microwave for the ganache. Thirty seconds at a time, stir well each time – it took me less than a minute to get the consistency right.
Grab a big cold glass of milk ad have some of these with the PB&C lover in your life – they will thank you!
