Recipe Week Part II: Triple-Layer Peanut Butter Brownies

On Monday I gave you guys the recipe for Spaghetti Carbonara.  Since we ate such a healthy dinner (cough cough), let's add a delicious dessert for the big finale shall we?

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!
