You love Layered Brownies from the bakery. Now with this easy chocolate brownie recipe, you bake them at home for a guaranteed dessert hit!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup butter in microwave on high for 2 minutes (or melt in a saucepan on stove over low heat), just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in granulated sugar then mix in the beaten eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour and peanuts then spread into a greased 9- x 13-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs; do not overbake. Cool in pan.
     
  3. Meanwhile, to make peanut butter layer, combine peanut butter and confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl until well blended and smooth. Spread over cooled brownies.
     
  4. Then, to make the glaze, place 4 squares of semisweet chocolate, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat mixture in microwave on high for 2 minutes (or melt in a saucepan on stove over low heat), just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spread over peanut butter layer. Cool until set then cut into squares.

It say's 4 1ounce squares not 1 ounce !!! But I guess anyone could mistaken that for 1 ounce the way it's written is a little confusing 3 O) 3 But I think I will try this next week so thanks for sharing !!!

I will make sure to double the chocolate glaze frosting - Thank you!

I t was good, butI had problems with the chocolate glaze. The 1 ounce of chocolate, 1/4 cup of butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla was not enough glaze to cover brownies. I did a second batch of glaze and even added some powered sugar and it still did not look like the picture of the brownies. What did I miss?

The recipe calls for 4 1 oz. squares of chocolate. That might help you.

I MADE THESE BROWNIES TODAY. AWESOME !!!! I DID SOME THINGS DIFFERENTLY,I DIDNT WAIT FOR THE BROWNIES TO COOL TO PUT THE PEANUT BUTTER ON THE BROWNIES,HOWEVER IT WAS STILL HARD TO SPREAD. THE CHOC TOP,I ADDED 1/4 CUP OF SUGAR AND 1/2 CUP POWDERED SUGAR,AND I SWIRLED THE PB AND CHOC TOGETHER. GREAT BROWNIES. I KNOW EVERYONE WILL LOVE THEM. WILL BAKE THEM AGAIN.

To get peanut butter to spread easier, put it in the microwave and heat. ( NUKE IT ! ) It will be as spreadable as you need it to be.

i love the recipes

These are amazing! I made 1/3 of a recipe in a 9" by 5" dish, & used half sugar substitute. The peanut butter layer did not "spread"on. I had to carefully pat it on.

I will give these a try. My family looovveess brownies! Thanks

My husband will love these!

Totally decadent, just have to try them
