Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Brownies: The Completion

• — • — •
As promised, this is Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Brownies: Part 2. They were a HUGE hit at the family affair and bonus: they traveled quite well during the 7 hour drive there & 7 hour drive back (there were thankfully some leftovers for me to share with the folks back home). Sometimes you gotta worry about those pesky details like dessert durability!

And the second thing I promised—the peanut butter filling recipe. As a bonus for you I've added a downloadable recipe card with the recipe to the post so scroll on down! This filling can be used to kick any recipe up a notch—brownies, cake, etc. It's actually pretty similar to making frosting. Here we go.

Peanut Butter Filling via Martha Stewart

• 4 tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
• 1/2 c confectioner's sugar
• 3/4 c smooth peanut butter
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine ingredients in bowl & blend well. Add to brownie batter by the spoonful and swirl with knife to create marbled-pattern.

Mmm, deliciousness. The peanut butter filling really does add the perfect touch--it's a little hint of salt in a sweet, rich, chocolatey treat. I added one batch of peanut butter filling to the brownies, but personally, I would maybe even add 1.5 batches. But I'm 110% obsessed with peanut butter, so that could be why. :-)
