Peanut Butter Brownie Dessert

Today’s recipe for Peanut Butter Brownie Dessert comes from my sister Evie. Evie called me a few months ago and told me she had just made this great peanut butter dessert and took it to our mom and dad’s house. She went on to say how good it was and ask if I wanted her to take a picture of it. Well of course I wanted a picture of it and a recipe to go along with it. 🙂 Thanks Evie for sharing your peanut butter dessert with us! And will you all please enjoy a piece of this for me because it looks really good!

Who doesn’t like dessert, especially chocolate dessert?  I happen to love chocolate.  I also think that peanut butter and chocolate combinations make some of the absolute best desserts.

When I first came across this recipe, I was thinking I’d try to make a smaller version.  Then I considered how yummy it looked and decided to make the whole thing on the first try.  I compromised by sharing it with some extended family members, because we couldn’t possibly eat it all.  The portion we kept for ourselves was quickly finished off!

This is a great brownie recipe; however I’m sure your favorite 9×13 boxed brownie mix or recipe, baked in three 8 inch pans, would work wonderfully as well.  I have since adapted this recipe to make a smaller version.  I halved the brownie recipe and baked two thinner 8 inch brownies.  I also halved the cream layer and toppings, and then layered like the whole version.

This dessert is a great combination of brownies and peanut butter.  The peanut butter cream cheese has a dense mousse-like texture that combines well with the chocolaty brownie.  This dessert is also great with a tall glass of cold milk!

  1. I made this for Father’s Day and the brownies didn’y turn out…gooey and kind of grayish brown instead of rich chocolatey brown (ew). BUT, I had a chocolate cake mix so I made two 9-inch cakes and layered the cream cheese mixture inside, then topped it like your instructions say above. I will say, the cream cheese mixture needed some sugar; otherwise it was quite good!

  2. What a treat! I’ll have to give it a try.
