How To Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Today we’re talking brownies. Not just any brownies – NO! We’re talking Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies that are so moist and rich and so totally decadent that you’re going to want a glass of milk to enjoy right along with it. That’s my kind of brownie 🙂

I started with a basic brownie recipe and made a few tweaks marshmallows, peanut butter chips, ya, know, I made it better.

I don’t know if you bake with marshmallows a lot but they do incredible things to these brownies. Little sugar-lined caves appear throughout the brownies and they are a treat for sure! If they happen to be up top…then they’re bound to get filled with the richest frosting made with milk chocolate chips and peanut butter. Just two ingredients!
