See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 325°F. Grease bottom of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box for cakelike brownies. In small bowl, reserve 1/2 cup of the brownie batter and set aside. Spread remaining batter in pan.

2:  In small bowl, mix brown sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1 egg. Spoon peanut butter mixture by tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batter. Top with random tablespoonfuls of reserved brownie batter. Cut through batter several times with knife for marbled design.

3:  Bake 35 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 1/2 hours.

4:  In small bowl, mix Peanut Butter Frosting ingredients, until smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over brownies. Cut into 5 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered.

Darlene’s Tips: Want a quick treat that looks homemade?  Pick up some store-bought brownies (like Little Debbie) and top them with the peanut butter frosting. That frosting would be delish on chocolate cake too! You could also sprinkle some peanut butter and chocolate morsels on top of the frosting. For extra peanut buttery frosting, try using equal parts of peanut butter and frosting. Add a few more drops of milk if necessary to get the consistency you want.  You can also make the frosting very light to use as a glaze. Just keep adding milk a few drops at a time.  Too thin?  Add some powdered sugar. Ohhhhh… you can add peanut butter to chocolate frosting too!  Yummers!
