Nutter Butter Brownies
I know I know, Peanut Butter and Chocoalte again!? The answer to that is simple. HECK YES! In this never ending hunt for a condo, my dad and the guys at his office have been working hard, and guess what? They like Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Who doesn’t? I brought about 12 to Matt (the bf) and his partner at work last night, and then they got a call (they are EMTs), so I left. 5 minutes later I get a call and they said they were gone! I suppose they liked them… I hope you do too!
Crush up your Nutter Butters.
Add butter and crush some more.
Scoop the nutter butter mixture into greased mini muffin pan, and press down with a shot glass.
Then cook the crust in a 325 degree oven for 5 minutes. Then make some brownie mix!
Scoop brownie mix on top of the nutter butter crust.
Bake for 11 minutes!
Yum… let these babies cool and then you will have to use a knife around them to fish them out of the pan. Sometimes greasing a pan is not enough!
Make a quick peanut butter frosting and place a dollop on the brownie, then top with a mini Nutter Butter.
