Double Frosted Peanut Butter Brownies
- 1 cup butter

- 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour

Peanut Butter Frosting
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3-4 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with aluminum foil so that it overhangs the sides.
- In a heavy-bottomed pot, melt the butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and let cool 5 minutes.

- Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 36 to 40 minutes. Cool completely.
- Lift brownies out of pan using foil and peel foil away from brownies.
- Make peanut butter frosting. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of milk until smooth. Add up to 2 more tablespoons of milk to get to spreading consistency.
- Spread on top of brownies. At this point, I like to cover the brownies loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 20 to 30 minutes to firm up the peanut butter layer.
