#48, Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies, p. 80

Remember the old peanut butter versus chocolate argument? You don’t have to decide — you can have an abundance of both in this unbelievable brownie! (p. 80)

RECIPE LINK

What do you do when teenagers┬ácan’t think of anything to do but stare into the screen of a laptop? Invite them to bake something they’ll love eating! In this case… a multi-step brownie recipe.

BROWNIE COOKIE?

I sort of wonder why the Magnolia bakers call this a brownie. It seems more like a “bar”of some sort. A very good some-sort.IMG_1118

Multi-step? Cookie? Brownie? What would Shrek say?

Well….. What layers?

1) Crust (therefore the cookie/bar ref) – melted butter, flour, confectioner’s sugar, chopped peanuts.

    Next tool? A small rolling pin? Any other ideas? Still, kinduh fun to apply the baker’s personal, hands-on touch.

2) Filling – cream cheese and peanut butter (mainly) —– Total YUM !!!

3) Brownie – flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, chocolate, AND peanut butter chips !!

( You can see the peanut factor is multiplying.)
