  • 1 box mix brownies prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk as needed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Prepare the brownies according to recipe or make brownies from a box mix.
  • Allow brownies to cool completely.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the peanut butter, butter, and 2 cups of powdered sugar until well combined and smooth. Add more powdered sugar as needed to get the consistency you prefer. The mixture should be thick, but add a tablespoon or two of milk if needed, so that you are able to spread the mixture on the brownies.
  • Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat until it just begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips. Whisk until the chocolate is melted.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then pour over the peanut butter and brownies. Smooth with an off-set spatula and then place the brownies in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
