Chocoholics Anonymous: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

I actually took this Bakerella-esque picture, Yeah Me!
Hannah enjoyed the brownie batter, can you tell, she transformed into Little Orphan Annie

Just today I was blog stalking and came across a kindred spirit with a sweet tooth, Satisfying My Sweet Tooth is a yummy site full of lots of sweet treats! This week alone she dedicated each day to a different brownie, that's what I call a true Chocoholic! I knew at first glance that this was going to be this weeks Chocoholics Anonymous recipe. Maybe I should rename Friday Peanut Butter and Chocoholics Anonymous, I'm setting a trend here huh? Thank you Grandpa for my deep love of Peanut Butter(especially in oatmeal!).


1 box Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix
1/2 C peanut butter chips
1/2 C dry roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

Peanut Butter Filling

3/4 C creamy peanut butter
1 C marshmallow cream
6 T butter, softened
3/4 powdered sugar

Chocolate Glaze
6 oz bittersweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
5 T butter
1 T light corn syrup

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 inch square pan with foil, letting foil extend above pan on opposite sides. Coat foil with nonstick spray.Prepare brownie mix as package directs for fudgy brownies. Stir in peanut butter chips and peanuts. Spread evenly in prepared pan.Bake 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

FILLING: beat peanut butter, marshmallow cream and butter in medium bowl until well blended. Reduce speed to low and add powdered sugar. Beat until blended. Spread evenly over brownie.

GLAZE: microwave chocolate and butter, stirring at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Cool slightly before stirring in corn syrup. Spread evenly over filling. Refrigerate 1 hour until filling is firm and glaze sets.Lift foil by ends onto a cutting board and cut 6 rows lengthwise and across. Store in fridge to keep firm.
*I posted this recipe before I made them, risky I know! They are hands down to die for delicious! You have to make these fellow chocolate lovers, they are worth the effort.

Cyber-lurking has become my newest past time/time waster. Those chocolate bars look amazing. I just added the ingredients to my shopping list. (I'll pretend I don't keep those things on hand normally)Maybe I'll bring some in Monday morning!!

Stumbled upon your blog tonight from your comment on Satisfying My Sweet Tooth. Spent some time reading about you and your amazing lives. Thank you for two uplifting blogs that made me stop and remember all my own blessings. May you continue to be blessed through these times. Sounds like you are a wonderful person with an amazing family! My prayers will be with you and Duane and your children.
Need more chocolate gawking--check out my blog sometime, too. Add me to your chocolaholics list! ;)
I'm LDS, too!

I seriously thought you copied that first picture from somewhere. Nice photography! Once again another mouthwatering recipe that I can't make because my husband is on a diet. I'm trying to be supportive, but it's soooo hard.

I can attest to the fact that these were the most awesomest, peanut butter chocolatiest brownies EVER!! Thank you so much, Becky, for making my day with that brownie...even if I did have to share with Mary and Clare. We ate it while Maggie and Anna were out of the room. Shhhhh...
