PB&B

PB&B (noun): [pee bee & bee] Short for Peanut Butter and Brownie; A three layer delicacy beginning with a thick base layer of delicious fudge brownie topped with a sweet, creamy peanut butter mixture, all covered with chocolate fudge and chopped peanuts.

This recipe takes the ingenious idea of peanut butter and chocolate to the next level. It combines a perfect variety of textures and flavors that your mouth will love. A fudge-like cake texture from the brownie, a whipped and fluffy peanut butter concoction, a smooth creamy chocolate top coat, and finally an added crunch from the sprinkled peanuts on top. Make these for all of your peanut butter and chocolate loving friends.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
