Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

2015 August 6
by Emily Hill

I was given a copy of Express Lane Cooking for review. All thoughts, opinions and pans of peanut butter fudge brownies are mine. Post contains affiliate links to support my Diet Coke habit.

Though I’m more lifestyle than food blogger, I share enough recipes to fool my food blogging friends into thinking I’m cool enough to review and give away copies of their new cookbooks. For example, Todd Porter and Diane Cu (aka White on Rice Couple) sent me a copy of Bountiful, from which came my favorite sweet onion crack dip. Deborah Harroun from Taste and Tell shared her Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook and Best 100 Smoothies for Kids with me, which allowed me to share these yummy red velvet oreos and pina colada smoothie with you.

It’s enough to make a girl feel loved.

Today I’m super excited to give you a sneak peek of my friend Shawn Syphus’ new cookbook, Express Lane Cooking by sharing her to-die-for recipe for peanut butter fudge brownies.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies - so decadent and so dang peanut buttery!

Holy crap. These babies are quite possibly the most decadent brownies I’ve ever tasted. That dense layer of brownie topped with all that peanut buttery goodness makes for the perfect dessert for those who claim Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as a favorite candy.

The triple chocolate chunk brownie mix I used may have helped as well.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies - so decadent and so dang peanut buttery!

.
All that decadence came from only five ingredients and about 20 minutes of prep work (not including brownie baking time and cooling time). But you can bake the brownies the day before or heck, two days before, and save yourself some time the day of.

But I’m getting way ahead of myself. I’ve gotta tell you about where I found the recipe for these better-than-sex-cake brownies.

The BBQ pulled pork in the stacked BBQ pulled pork nachos above is also used in BBQ pulled pork flautas and BBQ pork tortilla pizza. It’s enough to make you wish Taco Tuesday was every day (or at least Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday).

Express Lane Cooking features over 80 quick-shop meals—in other words, you’re in and out of the grocery star faster than you thought possible. To make it even easier, Shawn begins the cookbook with must-haves for your spice drawer, pantry and fridge.

You’ll find plenty of dinner recipes for poultry, beef, pork and seafood plus a few meatless meals and a handful of desserts like the peanut butter fudge brownies you’ve been drooling over since you started reading this post.

And with that, let’s get you that recipe and a chance to win a copy of Express Lane Cooking!

    My favorite quick and easy dinner time meal is spaghetti carbonara. It’s ready in the time it takes to boil the water and cook the spaghetti.
