Birthdays rolled around this winter and peanut butter and chocolate seemed to be a theme in baking around the Kelly house. Wanting to make a delicious but easy dessert while the baby slept, I stumbled upon two recipes from Pinterest and combined them to make peanut butter chocolate chip blondie brownies with peanut butter icing. Instead of using candles I used chocolate chips to write "happy b-day." If you are not using this as a birthday cake brownie, you can still sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

I did vary from both the original recipes slightly. In the brownie (from The Sweetest Kitchen) I did not use unsalted butter, I used regular butter, and in the frosting (from Mommy's Kitchen), I did not use Reese's Pieces, I used chocolate chips.

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondie Brownies

1/2 stick of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup or 6 oz of chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Frosting

16 oz bag (1lbs) powdered sugar
1/2 cup stick margarine, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp milk

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondie Brownies

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your 8 x 8 pan.
2. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar in a low to medium heat. Once melted, add the peanut butter, and let cool.
3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4. Stir in the egg and vanilla to the butter and sugar bowl.
5. Pour the butter and sugar mixture into the dry mix bowl and stir together.
6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
7. Pour the batter into the 8 x 8 pan. Bake for about 25 minutes. Let cool.

Peanut Butter Frosting

1. Cream (mix) the powdered sugar and butter together on a high speed.
2. Add the peanut butter.
3. Add the vanilla extract and milk. Mix until you have the consistency that you want (usually it does not take more than 1-3 minutes to mix frosting).

NOTE: If your frosting gets too thin, add more powdered sugar. If if gets too thick, add a little more milk.

4. Frost the brownie. Add chocolate chips on top, if you wish.

Servings: 9-16 servings
Time: 15 minutes prep, 25 minutes baking, 10 minutes for the frosting
Happy Baking!
