Just In Time For Valentine’s Day

I just need one thing on Valentine's Day: lots and lots of chocolate! Lots and lots of chocolate! I don't care how you give it...

February is such a fun month for desserts, wherein only two rules apply:

#1: Add Chocolate

#2: Create Heart Shapes

When did anyone ever go wrong by combining these two? I know it, See’s Candies knows it, and any man who ever wanted to do right by his lady knows it.

This easy little dessert combines both of these rules, plus the best combo known to the dessert world, PB&C – Peanut Butter and Chocolate. These brownies were inspired by Emily, of Is This Really My Life? Last week she posted her favorite brownie recipe: Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies – at Fahrenheit 350° we call these delectable treasures Twisted Treats.

Being that I am still in search of the elusive lunch lady peanut butter bar recipe from high school, I was inspired to tweak Emily’s recipe by stacking these two unique and delicious flavors. The result is mouth watering, delicious, and… magical.


Stacked Brownies

Chocolate Brownies
From a box – they are delicious… what can I say?
Pour into a greased 8×8 cake pan

Peanut Butter Brownies

¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
½ cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup water
2 eggs
1 cup flour
Thoroughly mix together until smooth
Pour into a greased 8×8 cake pan

Bake both pans of brownies side by side at 325°F 20-25 minutes
Run knife along sides of pan and invert onto wire rack

*Allow chocolate brownies to cool for 30 minutes in pan – then loosen with rubber scraper along bottom, prior to inverting, to keep brownies in tact

Frosting
Melt 8 oz. chocolate with ¼ cup milk
Stir until combined and let rest until room temp and incorporated

Add
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter
1-2 cups powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached
Whip until smooth

Finalè
Layer Peanut Butter Brownies evenly with frosting, spread to edges
Stack Chocolate Brownies over frosting and lightly press until attached
Cut into squares, or darling little heart shapes with cookie cutters
