Test Kitchen Tuesday ~ Week 14

This week I had a chocolate craving to tame.
Mother's Day set the tone and I couldn't stop there.
I had a box of brownie mix in the pantry so I decided to try out my pin for Peanut Butter Brownie Squares from Culinary.net.
The recipe card below reflects the changes I made.
I did not use specific name brand ingredients, and it didn't matter. I added 1/2 cup confectioners sugar to the frosting for stiffness. I did not use the drizzle and made them into filled brownie squares.

I always line my brownie pans with parchment so they come out clean and no crust  is stuck to the sides of the pan that needs to be sandblasted off and baked them for about 30 minutes.

While they were baking I whipped up the butter cream topping .

The brownies came out thin due to the size of the pan so I decided to cut the sheet in 1/2.

Spread a generous helping of the peanut butter buttercream on top of one half and then topped that with the other half making it a peanut butter filled brownie.

These were so good.
So good that I got up at 3 am and ate one.
These can never again be made in this house...ever.
Unless I am having a really bad day, or I have enough company to eat them all, or it's windy outside, or it's raining, or it's too sunny, or it's a day that ends in 'y'...
Try these, easy and delicious.
Brandon topped his with ice cream. I tried to have a little self control but that looked really good too.
So, going back to the rating system
Survey says:

Even though I sandwiched mine and didn't use the same brand name ingredients the recipe called for, this recipe is a winner.
