Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

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.

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 2Brownies 3 and Brownies 4. 😉

Yield: 9 brownies
