One of my best friends is coming to town.
Kristen and I have been friends since we were in 2nd grade. No, that is a lie. We have known each other since then but actually weren’t really friends until 6th grade. I don’t really remember why it took so long, but we have been best friends ever since. She was even a bridesmaid in my wedding.
When given the choice, Kristen requested a dessert with dark chocolate and fruit or dark chocolate and peanut butter. Well, it’s been almost 2 weeks since I posted a dessert with chocolate and peanut butter so I figure that it was about time to make another one. I don’t want my readers going through withdrawal or anything.
These Fat Witch Brownies with Peanut Butter Chips are from Lora’s wonderful blog, Cake Duchess. I saw the brownies the other day and couldn’t resist making them. Besides, brownies are terrifically easy for weeknight baking. The brownies came out incredibly fudgey and moist with the added texture of peanut butter chips. Some people might say they are so rich you can only eat a small piece (I am not one of them).
I followed Lora’s recipe with very few changes. I whisked everything together rather than using a mixer and doubled the portion of peanut butter chips. Check her blog for the specifics and to send her some hugs (she just shared the news of a health scare). We are thinking about Lora and her family and wish her the best.
Start by melting butter and chocolate together in a saucepan over low heat; set aside
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs
Then whisk in sugar and vanilla
Whisk in chocolate and butter mixture
Whisk flour and salt
When dry ingredients are completely incorporated, fold in peanut butter chips
Pour batter into pan and bake for about a half hour or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean
Top brownie with powdered sugar and serve
What do you bake when you are short on time?
Those look delicious! I’ve been itching to try a Fat Witch recipe but haven’t come across any yet! Can’t wait to try this one! :)
Hi Lauren- The brownies turned out great! I really loved the recipe too:) I like your heart shaped pan:) I’m sure your friend Kristen was happy! Thank you for your kind words:)
These look sensational. Can’t wait to make them. Thanks for posting!
I saw these on Lora’s blog too and thought they sounded amazing! I have to make these soon..I am such a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter! :)
Those sound really good! I love that heart-shape pan. So cute!
Hmmm seeing that picture of your wedding day makes me think you should do a belated wedding recap post. Or maybe you have and it slipped by me? Either way, you were a beautiful bride!
Hmmm I haven’t done one… I’ll have to do that:-)
These look so delicious!
I think these brownies + your white chocolate peanut butter would be heaven
These look delicious and I loved the heart-shaped pan! Why are the brownies called fat witch brownies?
It is an actual company out of NY http://www.fatwitch.com/ They make incredible brownies!
These look fantastic! And your pan is adorable!! For a quick dessert, I like getting down with some drop cookies or easy dessert bars! But these will be added to the list.
These look great, and I love the heart shaped pan! I actually made box mix brownies last night when I was short on time :)
You could add some banana to this then you would have chocolate, peanut butter AND fruit :)
You are so smart:-)
I love anything chocoalte and peanut butter, so I want to eat the whole pan of these! I approve of using more peanut butter chips :)
I could definitely eat the whole pan! Taking photos of them before work was torture.
They look decadent and delicious – love the heart shaped pan.
the brownies look great and I’m sure your friend appreciated them! I always go with cookies when I’m in a rush!
Yum! I am also a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter desserts and those peanut butter chips are soooo good! I probably stick to cookies when I’m short on time, but I am not a good short on time baker!!
I really need to get my hands on one of those fun heart shaped pans (I have smaller ones, but the big one is just awesome).
And it looks like you really know how to treat your guests! :-)
Those brownies look wonderful! Peanut butter and chocolate are amazing together! Enjoy the time with your friend! :-D
These brownies look so, so good! I hope you have a great visit with your friend :) There’s nothing better than visitors!
Thanks, it was so nice to see her! Haven’t seen you around the blogs lately!
You look so beautiful in your veil! The brownies sound delicious!
I came THISCLOSE to buying this cookbook at a border’s close-out sale the other day. And didn’t. Why.
You look so cute in that wedding picture! Beautiful bride!
I’m sure your friend was absolutely smitten with these brownies!
Looks so tasty. Brownies are always a great choice when time is short.
My mouth is watering!
Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chippers are my go-to when I need to whip up a sweet treat in no time flat. I’ve memorized the recipe by heart and it’s always yummy. Brownies are also rock solid (figuratively speaking, of course)!
How nice to have a friend that you’ve known so long, and how fab to make these delicious brownies in her honour. I’ve had fat witch brownies from NY, and I’ve even tried one of their baking mixes, but I’ve never made their recipes from scarth. These sound fantastic.
ps. hope you can stop by. I am doing a giveaway on my blog for an $80 Amazon card
Thanks, I’ll check it out!
I can never resist chocolate and peanut butter, so I’ll definitely be making these ASAP.
Kristen sounds like my kind of girl…. I love anythign with chocolate and peanutbutter!
You can never get enough brownies!
