Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Brownie Bites…

Tags: ,

Desserts

Good Monday everyone. We have officially started summer break this week, school is out! How was Father’s Day? We had such a sweet morning yesterday. I shared some pics below of my guys. We have had quite the busy last couple weeks with family visiting. It feels nice to be back in the kitchen!

While galavanting around with my family, we stopped in this old fashioned candy shop on Balboa Island where I bought some tiny chocolate covered brownie bites. They were pretty mediocre and I knew I could do much better. Check out my ultra simple, but oh so delicious brownie bites. Another jazzed up brownie mix that will have you smiling from ear to ear. Nothing tricky here, just pure sweetness. Don’t be surprised when these bad boys disappear before your eyes. Enjoy!!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Brownie Bites

1 brownie mix such as Pillsbury

2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 Cup peanut butter

1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Bake until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center but still slightly undercooked. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. When you are able to touch brownies comfortably, scoop brownies with a medium cookie scoop, roll tightly into a ball and place onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. Continue rolling until brownies are gone. Freeze brownies until very firm, a couple hours or overnight. No worries if your brownie balls aren’t perfect, once frozen reshape them. They are easier to handle when chilled.

2. Place chocolate chips over a double broiler (or heat in microwave until smooth) to melt, then stir in peanut butter until creamy smooth. Roll each frozen brownie ball into chocolate and place onto wax paper to dry. Enjoy room temperature or chilled.

    Love all the recipe ideas! Chocolate and peanut butter — you’re a woman after my own heart! I made these brownie truffles for a baby shower this weekend. Everyone gave rave reviews…even my husband (the pickiest of eaters!) loved them. He was sorry that there weren’t more left over!

    Kathy says:

    I would love to do these for the holidays but instead of peanut butter do mint extract and then crushed peppermint candies on top. Doesn’t that sound good? Can I add mint extract to chocolate or will it seize? I’ve never tried it before. Love your blog, btw!!

    I just made these for our family Christmas party. Wow! Yum!!! I had a peanut butter brownie recipe, so I used that instead of the box mix. These just melt in your mouth. I am glad it was for a party, or I might have eaten the whole lot of them.
    Thanks for the recipe!
