White Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies





There are very few perfect combinations in this world.  We have eggs and bacon, cake and ice cream, me and Rihanna…but my favorite is chocolate and peanut butter.  These White Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies are rich, chocolatey, sweet, and slightly salty.  If you like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, you’ll love these White Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies.

Notes

Making peanut butter is easy.  All you need is a food processor, some peanuts, and about five minutes.  I’ve read recipes that add oil, but I find it unnecessary.  The secret to making good peanut butter is patience.  The peanuts go from whole, to kind of dusty, to sandy, to kind of a big mess, and finally smooth and creamy.  Trust me, you’ll wonder whether or not you are doing it right multiple times, but it will eventually work.  It takes longer than you’ll think it should, but it will eventually be perfect smooth peanut butter.

When I say that chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combination I’m not lying.  If you were to ask my friends and family what is my all-time favorite food, they’d tell you Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

  1. You and Rihanna, lol. That was 😄. First, I want to thank you for encouraging me to make my own peanut butter. I guess it never dawned on me that I should make it at home, especially since I make it at Whole Foods. I will definitely give it a try. I will also being trying this yummy brownie recipe!

    1. It is really easy, and you can add fun flavors to it. White chocolate, dark chocolate, cayenne, curry powder, all work. One of my favorites is stirring in crushed pretzel pieces. I really like the salty/crunchy combination.
