These brownies were crazyyyyy good. I probably say that about most of the recipes on this site, since I only post recipes I think are the best of the best, so let me explain to you what makes these so good. First, you have the brownie, which is rich in chocolate and oh so fudgy. Then, it’s topped with a creamy peanut butter topping that’s a lot like a frosting. Then, you drizzle the bars with homemade chocolate ganache and finally top them off with chopped peanuts. All that chocolate and peanut butter together make one of the best and most decadent brownies I’ve ever tasted.
I really love the peanuts on top because the brownie is very soft and the frosting is super smooth, so the peanuts add a nice touch of crunch on top. Honestly, one of my favorite parts about this brownie (next to the taste, of course) was the look of it. I thought they were so beautiful. Well I still think they are, as a matter of fact. I had a lot of fun photographing them because it was so easy to make them look this delicious.
Although unrelated to these brownies, I have exciting news. This weekend I am going scuba diving and will officially become SCUBA certified. I am so excited. I’ve been going to classroom sessions and pool sessions galore. I had to do 2 classroom sessions, 3 hours each, and 7 pool sessions, 2 hours each. Quick math brings that to 20 hours, which has taken up a lot of my summer! So, needless to say, I’m excited to get certified, and to go on my first official dive!
As always, happy baking everyone!
