Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

Sooooo good. Peanut butter and chocolate is never a bad idea. I felt like having a gooey brownie so at our weekly Target trip, I picked up a bag of peanut butter chips for some added yumminess. These are really easy to make and of course even easier to eat. The recipe can be doubled if need be. So, go turn on your ovens and let’s get to baking!

What you will need:

8 inch square baking pan lined with foil

10 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup peanut butter cups (plus a handful for the top)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl over simmering water, melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and salt stirring constantly. Set aside to cool for a minute or 2.

Stir in the vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add the flour until combined. Fold in the peanut butter chips.

Evenly pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with a handful of peanut butter chips. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temp.
