Chocolate Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting!

If you fancy chocolate and peanut butter..this one's for you!




This recipe was adapted from Betty Crocker's Kids Cook Book.  We added white chocolate and peanut butter morsels to it and used my recipe for peanut butter icing.  Deep chocolate taste and if you are a chocolate peanut butter lover it is a must!  I found it to be a bit involved(and it was in a kid's cookbook) but it was worth it. Enjoy!!

5 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
2/3 cups butter or margarine
3 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 cup white chocolate morsels
1/3 cup peanut butter morsels

Heat oven to 350..Grease a 9 x9 inch pan (we used a 9 x 13)

In a sauce pan heat over low heat chocolate and butter or margarine until chocolate is melted..Take off heat and cool 5 minutes.

Put 3 eggs, sugar and vanilla in mixing bowl..Beat until well blended.  Add melted chocolate to sugar mixture.  Beat at low speed until blended..Add flour to chocolate mixture..Stir in white chocolate and peanut butter morsels. Spread batter in greased pan and bake approx. 40 to 45 minutes for 9 x9 inch pan..approx. 30 minutes for 9 x 13 inch pan.. Frost when completely cooled..

Frosting

2 cups confectionery sugar
2 tablespoons butter melted
approx. 1/4 cup milk(watch amount of milk,start with a little bit at a time)
1 cup peanut butter
Mix above ingredients in mixer..Slowly add milk a little at a time until desired consistency)
