Stop What You’re DoingPosted: August 16, 2011
And make these brownies. Sorry for the teaser title but these brownies are showstopping. And heart stopping. In every way.
Adapted from howsweeteats
1 stick butter
1 cup 2 tbsp sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2/3 cups chocolate chips (optional)
2/3 cups creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 3/4 cups crushed pretzel sticks
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Make a crust with crushed pretzels and melted butter, press it into a prepared 8×8 pan.
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, and salt) and carefully spread over prepared pretzel crust. Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Just before brownies are done, melt peanut butter in a bowl and combine with powdered sugar. Take brownies out of the oven and pour the peanut butter mixture over them. Wait as long as you can for the brownies to come to room temperature and eat.
I realize that these brownies probably look like poop casserole but hopefully the conspicuous amount missing from the pan is testament enough to their overwhelming, life-ruining deliciousness. ‘Cause this brownie is a life ruiner. It ruins peoples’ lives.
More updates to come in the near future, stay tuned.
