Brownie Week, Day 1, and a GIVEAWAY!

Yeah! It's Brownie Week and my first GIVEAWAY here at Satisfying My Sweet Tooth!
I am so excited about sharing this fun week with you!

And for the first brownie of the week: Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars! You just can't go wrong with the peanut butter and chocolate combination. It's been one of my favorites as long as I can remember. Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups were my favorite growing up and the one thing I would trade any other candy for at Halloween time and then of course M&Ms started making the peanut butter m&ms and I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I tried those. Genius! Now, I found this brownie recipe and I'm in love all over again! A fudgy chocolate brownie with peanut butter chips, a layer of rich peanut butter filling, and then a solid chocolate layer on top. Absolutely amazing!


CHOCOLATE-PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE BARS

1 box Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix
1/2 C peanut butter chips
1/2 C dry roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

Peanut Butter Filling

3/4 C creamy peanut butter
1 C marshmallow cream
6 T butter, softened
3/4 powdered sugar

Chocolate Glaze

6 oz bittersweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
5 T butter
1 T light corn syrup

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 inch square pan with foil, letting foil extend above pan on opposite sides. Coat foil with nonstick spray.

Prepare brownie mix as package directs for fudgy brownies. Stir in peanut butter chips and peanuts. Spread evenly in prepared pan.

Bake 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

FILLING: beat peanut butter, marshmallow cream and butter in medium bowl until well blended. Reduce speed to low and add powdered sugar. Beat until blended. Spread evenly over brownie.

GLAZE: microwave chocolate and butter, stirring at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Cool slightly before stirring in corn syrup. Spread evenly over filling. Refrigerate 1 hour until filling is firm and glaze sets.

Lift foil by ends onto a cutting board and cut 6 rows lengthwise and across.
Store in fridge to keep firm.
Yeah! It's my first giveaway! I'm giving away this awesome cook book from Williams Sonoma! Leave a comment on this post telling me what your dream brownie would be made of. Be sure to comment by Friday, October 10th at 11:59 pm. I will post the winner on Monday, October 13th.

Good luck!

I think you just posted my dream brownie, lol!! I am weak for chocolate and peanut butter and your filling looks so delicious!

Great giveaway and brownie recipe!

Emily B said...

Peanut butter brownies sound amazing. I'm a sucker for any chocolate-coffee combination, but my fiance's allergic to coffee (!! can you imagine?!) so this sounds like a great option for our household. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Jenny said...

I love the idea of brownie week. Those peanut butter brownies look so good! I love caramel brownies.

The Shulls said...

Oh, those look delicious!!! I love brownies with a layer of dulce de leche (caramel), nuts and then fudge on top!

cpullum said...

Made of extra chocolate!!! yum!!!
With frosting!!

Carla

Peter and Jen Bell said...

My dream brownie would have caramel, nuts, and marshmellows in it with a yummy chocolate frosting on top! The frosting on top just makes all brownies that much better. Are you making and eating all of these brownies this week? You're brave!

neffgang said...

Hey! I had no idea you were a bake-a-holic. I can't wait to check out your website and get some good recipes. Brian makes a killer brownie. I was excited to see the mint brownie picture and hoping to see a recipe this week.

Steph

P.S. How is Joel doing?

Sarah said...

I'll take any kind of brownie. If it's got chocolate, I'm all in.

Those looks SO good that I'm feeling depressed that we're not neighbors and I can't snitch a taste. :(

MacD Kids said...

You amaze me... 3 children AND this?! When do you sleep? :) Well, my dream brownie would taste like a s'more... don't know quite how that would work, but none the less! Hope you're doing great, are you ever coming out to California???

Laina said...

mmmm. Guess what recipe I'm gonna make this week now?!!? That looks sooo yummy! I love the peanut butter M&M's!!!

Ultimate brownie recipe would be these things my roommate and I made...little mini cupcake holders that you put brownie mix in the bottom and cookie dough on top. Throw on a dollop of vanilla ice cream and you have the best combo ever!!!

Candy said...

My favorite are Blondie Brownies! I know, I know no chocolate but they are so good! These look delicious too!

laurel said...

Yum yum yum! Pick me!

Liz S. said...

I love brownies. I love brownies with caramel inside then served with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. What a treat!

Emily said...

I think these are pretty much IT. Gee whiz girl, these look amazing!

Elisa said...

Yep...I agree!! I love the peanut butter/chocolate combo. Another dream brownie would have to have white chocolate, and a layer of ganache and brownie.
Yummy!
You are so creative!!! Love it!

Colleen said...

yummy! can i lick the screen? those look mighty tasty. i also love coconut, chocolate, and almonds in them.

Everyday Moments said...

These brownies look wonderful. I love fudge? Got a great fudge recipe? A nice "fudgey" brownie with nuts and maybe caramel & coconut would be a hit with me.

Carla

aubrie said...

My dream brownie would be chocolate fudge brownie with walnuts, a mint/marshmallow topping, and fudge ganache. Yum!

the W* family said...

Brownies with mint and ganache. Oh, my!

Allison

Melanie said...

My favorite brownies would have to consist of brownie batter, chocolate chunks and a cinnamon flavored cream cheese. But...I'm definitely not a brownie snob and could eat any brownie, despite it's features!

Andrea and Casey said...

I just found your blog on Stephanie's Kitchen. These brownies look delicious! I love brownies! My favorite is mint chocolate brownies with icecream and hot fudge. Yummy!!

Andrea

Kimberly said...

Since peanut butter and chocolate is pretty much my favorite combo ever, I'm definitely going to have to try these. Like many others have commented, some form of mint brownie would also be delicious.

Cara said...

I just tried a brownie with toffee and nuts - heaven!!

The Larsen's said...

I also love Peanut butter and Chocolate. You just can't go wrong. My other choice would be a really good mint brownie...not one that tastes like toothpaste!

twede said...

These look so good! Any form of brownie is my favorite! But I'm thinking about a brownie with chocolate chuncks, caramel, nuts, and coconut, then topped off with vanilla icecream. Sounds so rich, but so good!!! Thanks for all the yummy recipes. I look forward to what lies ahead of brownie week:)

Everyday Moments said...

Thanks for your comment back. My email is mcgw4@cox.net and I'd love that fudge recipe.

Carla

cookienurse said...

My favorite is definately PB and chocolate; or a raspberry choc chip brownie!

nicole said...

Holy Moly! Those look fantastic. I would say my dream brownie has caramel in it and maybe some fudge. YuM!

lrbodine said...

Wow this brownie sounds amazing. I think the only thing that would complete my dream brownie would be caramel!

Amber said...

YUMMY!! I will have to try it! My dream brownie would be smothered in caramel and marshmallow. With vanilla ice cream on top of course.

the Simpson's said...

Thanks for letting me know about this bolg... you rock! Hope everyone is doing well.

My dream brownie is supper chewy and some how encorperates carmel.

Marsha said...

Oh yum! Those look great.

My dream brownie: walnuts, caramel, with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Michelle W. Nate said...

Charlie Brownies...as my son calls them. It has chocolate and caramel. I do have to say that your chocolate peanut butter fudge bars sound absolutely scrumptious and just might move up to the top of my list. THANKS!!!

Brenda Campbell said...

My favorite dream brownie would be dark chocolate bottom, minty milk chocolate in middle, and white chocolate on top with chocolate mint chocolate chips on top. That is what I am trying to create a recipe for myself. I love chocolate and mint together, I think that is the best combination. If I am successful in creating this brownie to perfection, I will let you know. Working on it as we speak so I can have it ready for yummy Christmas gifts and some for myself. Have a great day, you have a great blog here.

ikkinlala said...

My dream brownie would have raspberries and cream cheese.

Sylvie said...

I would love a dark fudgy brownie with dark and milk chocolate chunks, topped with fudge frosting and drizzled with white, milk and dark chocolate.

Super Healthy Kids said...

Definitely anything with peanut butter! Thanks for the giveaway.

Alycia Irish said...

My dream brownie would be a dark chocolate fudgy brownie, with a hint of espresso, Heath Bar or Toffee pieces worked into the batter and an Irish Cream or Kahlua flavored filling, with a dark chocolate glaze on top.

JEWEL said...

I just came over from Stephanie's blog - what a fun series to do!! Well, first of all, you can't really go wrong with brownies in my opinion, but my dream brownie would have lots of chocolate and lots of caramel!

Maria said...

That is a dream brownie right there! YUM!! What a great giveaway! I personally like a plain fudgy brownie with ice cream on top! YUM!

Rash, Rooster, Boosey, Rachy said...

My dream brownie would be made of lots of fudge, carmel, and butterscotch chips! yummmm! I would love this book!!

Sam and Mandy said...

Pretty much any brownie is a dream brownie to me, but I am thinking german chocolate icing and brownies sound delicious! I can't think of many things better than coconut and chocolate!

Kelly said...

Welcome to the blog roll! My dream brownie would include kirsch-soaked dried cherries and chocolate nibs. Mmmmmm!

Tina said...

Mmmmm...I love brownies!! Although I wouldn't turn down any flavor (well unless it had coconut in it), I think chocolate and mint would be yummy. Like Andes mints. Mmmm love those!

Jodie said...

My dream brownie would be a dark chocolate brownie with choco chunks and toffee bits. But yours look pretty good, too...

RebekahP said...

My dream brownie would be moist & gooey with chocolate chips and oreo pieces drizzled with white chocolate on top.

Carla said...

The perfect brownie to me is slightly cakey, with walnuts and toffee. mmm....can't wait to see what you have the rest of the week!

Jacks said...

My perfect brownie would include: chocolate chip cookie dough, marshmallows, toffee, and chocolate!

But I will vouch for these brownies. They taste exactly like a peanut butter cup. So good!

k8e said...

This IS my dream brownie!! Anything with peanut butter and chocolate is a winner! Can't wait to try this recipe!! Woo-Hoo!

AmyG said...

I brownie with the ingredients from coconut pecan frosting! yum!

Rhiani said...

Dark chocolate brownie (bittersweet, no playing around!), caramel and peanut butter - dark chocolate ganache on the top. That pretty much describes heaven :)

Katrina said...

What a fun week! Brownie Heaven! Hmm, a favorite brownie, that's hard. As I kept taking bites of those darn double frosted layer mint ones I just recently posted, I would almost say they are currently my favorite, but seeing these pb ones, hmmm. Gotta love pb and chocolate.
GREAT BLOG! Thanks for stopping by mine!
Oh, and your twist on this week's TWD brownie cake looks and sounds so good. Love the coconut idea!

Prudy said...

What a scrumptious brownie and fabulous give away!

Connie said...

There are no calories, right?

The Hendrickson's said...

Ok...so pb is my absolute favorite. Well..and cookie dough...love cookie dough! So do you need someone to come taste-test all your brownies for you?!:)

hot garlic said...

Hey! I keep wanting to try one of those brownie recipes with pretzels in them -not sure it's my dream but sounds they might be!

These look great!

Life With Jack said...

I would love a simple brownie...but very chocolate-y! Soft, fudgy and warm. Maybe a dark chocolate on bottom and milk chocolate layer on top.

All of your brownie recipes look amazing! Some of these will definitely be showing up in my house the next few weeks! :) Thanks!

buff's stuff said...

wow was out of the loop with not knowing about this amazing food blog, can't wait to try some recipes! my dream brownie would typically be a carmel brownie but as of late i must confess i've had a new craving. i would die if a mint brownie showed up on my door step, i would love the mint to not be mint chips but like a frostingish mint filling that must of course be the color mint, (green but not to green you know that you be yucky and remind me of grass instead of mint.) if i had this dream brownie that i didn't have to make then i think my life would officialy be complete! amazing what a good treat can do for me.

Beckstrand7 said...

I want a ROCKY ROAD FUDGE type brownie, with nuts, marshmallows, and lots of fudgy chocolate! Mmm!

Actually your brownies might be my dream brownies. Otherwise there would need to be cheesecake involved. Mmm... I shouldn't be thinking of these things so early in the morning :)

Angie Morris said...

My favorite brownie would have chuncks of Snickers. Yum!!

~Diana~ said...

I get weak in the knees for anything with peanut butter and chocolate.....

My dream brownie has caramel, perhaps pecans, of course much rich chocolate (in some combination of chunks, cocoa, and fudge), and is made from butter or cream. Mmm. :)

Kirsten, Mike and The Boys said...

My dream brownie? ANYTHING! Brownies are wonderful in all their varieties! Although there is little that beats a plain, chewy, fudgy brownie with a really good frosting . . . (drooling on the keyboard). These peanut butter ones look like heaven too though. I may have to make them TODAY.

Corinne said...

My dream brownie is gooey and fudgy - no dry crumbly brownies here! It would have caramel, cream cheese, and peanut butter swirls. And it would be served warm with a scoop of ice cream melting on top. Ohhh, I'm getting hungry!!!

The Mitchell Family said...

My dream brownie would have caramel and pecans in it, sort of a turtle brownie.

Em and Ken said...

Oh how I wish I could come up with a brownie that had cookie dough in it. Yep cookie dough. The two together would be amazing~

Katie said...

My dream brownie would have lots of mint in it...maybe junior mints?? My mouth is watering.

CBear said...

My brownie would have to be the deepest darkest chocolate with just a pinch of salt...

and maybe some kahlua...

Karen said...

My dream brownie would contain some coffee flavoring of some kind and a hint of cinnamon. Wow!

Anonymous said...

This one is pretty close to my dream brownie, but another one would have Jr. Mints or Peppermint Patties in it. I think I've seen one like that before, but never made one. I can't wait to try these peanut buttery ones!

Leah

Libby said...

That brownie looks incredible! Now, if I could just have one of those delivered to my door every morning with a steaming latte that would be my dream come true!

Topher said...

Thanks for the opportunity and recipes!

zekks @ yahoo dot com

Jenn said...

My true true favorite brownie is a regular brownie with peanut butter smeared on top......oh my, my husband is out of town, I might have to make a batch just for ME!!!

Crystal said...

I love PB too but, I also love some with a cream cheese icing. YUM I like nuts in them too, maybe some macadamia nuts would be good. I never had that but, that is my dream brownie. 8)

Jessi Woods said...

Yummo! Every since I got preggo with my daughter, she is now 16 months old, I have loved sweets. The book looks awesome!

chuck said...

I don't think there is anything better than a warm freshly baked brownie! Your peanut butter fudge bars looks so good!

Whitney said...

Love it, Becky. These all look delicious.

Ingrid said...

Hmmm, my fave Brownie would have to be the Blondie! I'm not a huge fan of chocolate though I have been know to wolf down a brownie with a HUGE ICY COLD glass of milk especially if it was a corner piece. The huge icy cold glass of milk is key for me with anything chocolate.

Thanks for a chance to win a great cookbook. I enjoy Elinor Klivans' cookbooks. I have several though not this one!
~ingrid

Jodi said...

I was making your mint brownies today and I think you've written the recipe or instructions wrong. It calls for 1 cup butter divided. 1/2 cup into the brownie base and then it says ad remaining butter to make the mint layer and the chocolate icing layer also says add remaining 1/2 cup butter. Somethings definitely wrong! Help!!

Satisfying my Sweet Tooth said...

Sorry, Jodi! I did post it wrong. I have fixed it now, but it is actually 1 1/2 C butter, divided. I hope it wasn't too much trouble. Thank you for pointing it out and thanks for trying the recipe! Hope it was a hit!

HeidiMonkey said...

My dream brownie IS the chocolate peanut butter one. Mmm, w/the peanutty glaze. Yummy!

Ingrid said...

Okay, I printed out ALL FIVE of your brownie recipes. I'll definitely let you know how they came out and if I can find my camera or the computer cord to my spare one I'll blog about 'em! First, up will be the Oreo ones.
~ingrid

HRLeighLeigh said...

Really chocolately, dense, chock full of either pecans or walnuts with a caramel ribbon running through the whole thing. Must have a glass of milk to go along with it!!!

tammyfaye said...

These were absolutely delish. I go through zillions of recipes, and it's rarely that I actually keep one to repeat. These brownies will become a go-to recipe whenever I need PB and chocolate. Thanks so much for sharing!
