Is there a better combo than chocolate and peanut butter?! I didn't think so! :) If you're a fan of chocolate and peanut butter, you're gonna LOVE these brownies. Although these may look intimidating with the three layers, let me assure you it's easy. That's how I roll - I like easy!
These brownies are totally decadent - you are getting brownies, peanut butter fudge and ganache?! Enjoy! :)
Peanut Butter Fudge Browniesby
- 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar
- ¾ cup baking cocoa
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1⅓ cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
- ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
- 6 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9×13-in. baking dish with cooking spray.
2. For the brownie layer: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa,baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined – Do NOT overmix. Spread into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean. Cool on a wire rack.
3. For the peanut butter fudge layer: In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and sugar to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Add the peanut butter and marshmallow creme and mix well. Quickly pour the mixture into the pan over the cooked brownie layer. Refrigerate for one hour.
4. For the chocolate ganache layer: Heat whipping cream in a small saucepan until hot but not boiling. Remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate until melted. Let stand for about 5 minutes. (The ganache is ready to use when the mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. It will become thicker as it cools.) Pour the ganache over the fudge layer and tilt the pan so the ganache flows evenly over the top, covering it completely.
5. Allow to set completely before cutting into bars.
