Double Peanut Butter and Chocolate Brownies

Happy Halloween, friends.

Halloween is one of my favorite times to make treats. Unfortunately, my favorite Halloweenie no longer lives at home. 😦 He’s almost 24 (what, you say?!?!) and is now living in the big city while he works on his master’s degree. But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t send him some Halloween treats. After all, I do miss seeing his freakishly handsome face around the house.

So, to celebrate his (and my) favorite holiday, I made him these double peanut butter paisley brownies from Hershey’s Kitchens.

They’re scary good.

I hope your goblins like them, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 10 oz. package of peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup

Heat your oven to 350°. Grease a 9×13 pan. Beat butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla.ButterAndPeanutButter

Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Then mix that into peanut butter mixture, blending well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
