Family Favorites

This week's Family Favorite came off my Betty Crocker calendar. I made this for the first time in June, but it has quickly become one of our favorite desserts!! I mean, it has chocolate in it...of course it's great!!!!!!!

It really is simple to make and it's pretty rich so a little will do ya.....unless of course you're an addict like me and won't last quite as long.....

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

Brownie Base

1 box (1lb 6.5 oz)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box

I make my own brownies from scratch and this works just as well!!!


½ cup butter, softened
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk


1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup butter

Heat oven to 350ยบ F (or whatever your brownie recipe calls for). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir the brownie mix (or stir your own brownie mix up) until well blended. Spread in pan and bake until done. Let brownies cool completely.
In a medium bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownie base.
In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave topping ingredients uncovered on High for 30-60 seconds. Stir until smooth. Cool 10 minutes, spread over filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set.
Store covered in refrigerator.

As always, if you give this a try, let me know what you think!!
Hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!
