Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Thank you Ghirardelli for this amazing and slightly sinful Peanut Butter Brownie Bite recipe.  Our Adventures in Chocolate category thanks you as well.

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

As I read through the original recipe it occurred to me that the first four steps were making brownie batter.  So I bought a box of brownie mix, Ghirardelli of course, prepared it according to the package and jumped ahead to step #5.  Other than that, I followed the recipe as written.  Rich chocolate brownie base with peanut butter brownie center covered in bittersweet chocolate glaze.  Oh. My. Word.

I had to do a hurry-up photo shoot before losing the daylight.  You’ll notice the glaze is nice and gooey and while we enjoyed them this way, once they have time to properly rest, the glaze will harden like a delicious chocolate bar.  Pour yourself a cold glass a milk and get ready for Peanut Butter Brownie Bites {of Love} to make your day.

Here are a couple pictures taken from the back deck vs. the front porch.  Cool lighting differences.
