A friend of mine gave me the recipe for these layered brownies, but I added my own touch--chunky peanut butter. Every time I take them to a group gathering, I get requests for the recipe. It's a real crowd-pleaser!
I converted these blondies to be gluten-free so that my family could enjoy a comforting dessert. We were really craving brownies one night, and this cakelike treat hit the spot! —Becky Klope, Loudonville, New York
Here's an easy after-school special moms and dads will love. Don't want the kids to see you with your hands in the cookie jar? Be sure to wash down the evidence with a cold glass of milk. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
My niece Amanda Jean and I have a lot of fun in the kitchen creating different dishes. One of us will start with recipe idea and it just grows from there—and so does the mess. We always have a blast. That's exactly what happened with our Grilled Banana Brownie Sundae with Peanut Butter Cream. —Carol Farnsworth, Greenwood, Indiana
"I constantly had cravings for peanut butter while I was pregnant with our second child," says Columbia City, Indiana's Karen Jagger. "This unusual dessert pizza satisfied me, and using a brownie mix meant I could throw it together in no time."
It's impossible to eat just one piece of this dessert pizza with a chewy, chocolaty crust, creamy peanut butter frosting and mouthwatering sweet and crunchy toppings. It's warmly received wherever I take it. —Paula Riehl, Boise, Idaho
With a creamy frosting and crunchy topping, these rich three-layer brownie bars are a decadent treat. “They're a cinch to assemble, but irresistible,” Annmarie Savage attests from Skowhegan, Maine. “Whenever I make them for someone new, they always want the recipe.”
Peanut butter and chocolate are always a delicious duo, but they're extra-special paired in this tempting treat. Even with a sizable collection of brownie recipes, I reach for this one quite often. The marbled look attracts curious tasters...the flavor brings them back for seconds.
