December is HERE and I am ridiculously excited. I have decorated my house from top to bottom and holiday baking has officially begun!

I have two KitchenAid stand mixers, one in pink (with the clear bowl) and this big mac daddy in red. I trade them out through the year to match my moods. This one has been on the counter since October and will stay up the rest of the year.

But as soon as February rolls around, the pink one has to come out for Valentines Day. Am I the only one that matches their stand mixers to their mood? Probably. I’m insane.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies (recipe via

This is a great ‘make it your own’ type of recipe. You can use your favorite brownie recipe (or boxed mix) and your favorite nut butter (like Almond Butter or Sunflower Seed Butter). I have even made these with Biscoff! It’s a great way to dress up brownies in a hurry.

If you want to do a boxed brownie, I recommend Ghirardelli. They are my favorite boxed brownie and always turns out great. If you are looking to make them from scratch, I got you covered: Brownies 1, Brownies 2, Brownies 3 and Brownies 4. ;-)

Yield: 9 brownies

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies are a life-changing combination of chocolate and peanut butter! These rich brownies, topped with peanut butter fudge and drizzled chocolate, are quite possibly the best dessert ever.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 1 batch of your favorite Brownies (baked in a 9x9 pan)
  • 3/4 cup cream peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 oz dark chocolate


  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, melt peanut butter and butter. Stirring as needed, until smooth.

    Haha sorry for the double comment I entered the giveaway after entering into this fabulous giveaway! It is hard to choose just one favourite holiday cookie but I LOVE rich, buttery shortbread thumbprint cookies with chocolate in the middle! :) Happy Holidays!

    I love the idea of a peanut butter brownie – what better combination than chocolate and peanut butter ;)

    I love that you switch out your mixers based on your mood! And these brownies – swoon! I have a jar of peanut butter that’s about to expire so I really need to put that to use stat!

  4. Joanne

    Ooo I should really start doing that with my stand mixers…breaking out the persimmon in the fall and the lime green in the spring? Definitely happening.

    Brownies are year-round though. Especially with peanut butter. #swoon
