Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

A bad day in the kitchen... (running behind, pan overflowed in oven, screaming baby, bars fell apart, huge mess with company arrived, etc...)
Company came over tonight, and I wanted to make peanut butter bars. The bars didn't turn out, but I had already made the frosting to spread on the warm bars so I whipped some brownies to spread it on. This chewy, perfect brownie recipe, that was my great-grandmother's, is my favorite of all time. They are absolutely fabulous on their own, but they are great with the frosting as well.

Brownies (13x9 pan...can be halved for 8x8 pan)
4 (1oz) squares unsweetened chocolate (or 12 Tbl cocoa + 4 Tbl oil)
1 c butter
2 c sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 c flour
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/3 c butter, softened
2/3 c peanut butter
2 c powdered sugar
1/3 c milk
  • Melt chocolate squares over hot water. (or mix cocoa with oil)
  • Thoroughly cream butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs and beat well.
  • Blend in melted chocolate, vanilla, and flour.
  • Pour into greased 13x9 pan and bake at 325* for 35 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean)
  • ICING Beat ingredients together until smooth. Pour over warm brownies and spread.


  1. These look very good...You can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.
