First Place Winner in RSC#12! Super rich peanut butter dark chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter topping accented with chocolate drizzle! Serving size will vary on tolerance for rich, sweet foods - the first time I made these, I cut into 20 bars and some of my guests thought that half the size would have been enough... I, on the other hand, had two!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray 9x9 (recommended) or 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan over low heat. Add baking chips and peanut butter, stirring over low heat until melted.
  3. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in splenda, sugar and vanilla. Beat in egg and then the two egg whites.
  4. Add the flour and stir for about one minute, until batter becomes smooth and glossy.
  5. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  6. Spread into prepared cake pan and bake for 20-25 minutes for a 9x9 dish or slightly more for an 8x8 dish - brownies are done when moist crumbs cling to a toothpick inserted in the middle. Don't overcook (toothpick will come out clean) or they will be dry.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.
  8. To make topping: using an electric mixer combine creamy peanut butter and powdered sugar until you have coarse crumbs. Scraping down sides when necessary.
  9. On medium-high speed, beat in evaporated milk (or milk) one tablespoon at a time until mixture is smooth and spreadable, although not runny. This is not a frosting, the consistency should be rather thick and sturdy.
  10. Spread over cooled brownies.
  11. Plate brownies, then drizzle sugar-free chocolate syrup over brownie before serving for an elegant brownie dessert or drizzle onto uncut brownies, cutting will create a different look each time! Measurement is a guesstimate - I just squeeze it right out of the bottle.
  12. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

Very delicious and easy to make! The brownie was probably the best brownie I have ever made or tasted. The peanut butter topping gave it the extra richness! My family all loved it, and it was gone within a matter of minutes.

yummm these are good. they taste exactly like reeses, especially the topping. i used normal caster sugar, white self-raising flour and didnt use the extra choc chips at the end. they are really gooey and also a bit fiddly and heaps of washing up which can be hard. and it didnt make 24-36, more like 16... but pretty nice :)
