I have received Julie Druck's "A Heart For Home" newsletter for years. This recipe appeared in the June edition and I just had to share it with you all!
Peanut Butter Brownie Bars
1 box brownie mix for a 13x9” pan
1/2 C. butter, softened
1/2 C. creamy peanut butter
2 C. powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. milk
1 C. semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 C. butter
Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom and sides of a 13x9” pan with cooking spray. Mix brownies according to package directions. Bake for approx. 25 minutes at package temperature or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. Cool completely. In medium bowl, mix the next 4 ingredients with mixer on medium until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownies. In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and butter on medium heat 30-60 seconds; stir until smooth, microwave longer if needed. Cool 10 minutes; spread over peanut butter filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set and serve.
