Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies



It's officially been two years since I started documenting my journey through the culinary world (albeit with months of hiatus in between :p). Either way, I figured that some changes needed to be made and so, with great pleasure I present to you www.nishbakes.com

Taa-daah!  

In conjunction with all things celebratory it was only fitting that I make something delightful yet sinful. And so here I present this truly epic combination of peanut butter and chocolate in the form of Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies.

These brownies are incredibly rich and decadent so portion control is something of a must!


The brownies start off with a layer of Browned Butter Brownies which is then topped with a gorgeous layer of smooth peanut butter frosting and finally finished off with a small spread of melted chocolate.

*A note of caution: the brownies are very very rich so refrain from being too generous when slicing. A small piece goes a long way!
