Behold one of my all-time favorite desserts:
The Triple-Layer Peanut Butter Brownie
These are squishy, delicious, and rich. They have three layers: brownie, a peanut butter mixture, and chocolate on top just for good measure. They turn out perfectly every single time and people will start requesting them when you're showing up to a party because they're that good. What they don't have to know? They're easy and fool proof!
- 1 pkg. (19 to 21 oz.) brownie mix (for a 13 * 9 pan)
- 1 c. cold milk
- 1 pkg. (3.4 oz) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
- 1 c. creamy Peanut Butter (I use Honey Peanut Butter)
- 1 1/2 c. Cool Whip Whipped Topping (do not thaw)
- 3 sqaures Baker's Semi-sweet Chocolate
- 1/2 c. powdered sugar
Prepare and make brownies in a 13 * 9 inch pan as directed on package; cool.
Meanwhile, beat milk and pudding mix with whisk for 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and powdered sugar and mix well. Refrigerate the mix until the brownies are completely cooled.
Spread the peanut butter mix OVER the brownies, like so:
Microwave the cool whip and chocolate on high for 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds. Your bowl should look like this before it goes in to the microwave:
It should look like this once it has already melted (approximately 1 minute in the microwave):
Spread this chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture, like so:
Refrigerate the entire thing for AT LEAST one hour, and then cut in to it ... enjoy!
