I think these are the best brownies I’ve ever made.

They may even be the best thing I’ve ever made. Ever.

I know that seems like a pretty big claim, especially after the Snickers Cheesecake Cake. But these are just so perfect, I almost can’t handle it.

I was having one of those days when I had so much to do, but wasn’t very organized so I end up accomplishing nothing, and feeling frustrated with myself. The hubs gets home for lunch just after noon and at 11:30 I started to whip up a batch of brownies.

You know, so I could feel like I accomplished something.

For normal people without kids (not that people with kids aren’t normal…. but…), this wouldn’t even be an issue.

But my almost-3-year-old wanted to “help” me make brownies, and she usually helps by taking all of the paper liners out of the mini muffin pan (you know, the ones I just put in) and stacking them up.

We made it, the brownies were baked, and I stuck them in a container to do something with the next day.

I had a bag of salted, roasted peanuts leftover from when I made the Snickers Cheesecake Cake, and I was kind of loving that idea.

I wanted to make a mini version, that’s perfect for when you just need a small bite (or a dozen small bites…. whatevs) of something sweet

OH MY WORD.

The sweet, and fudgy, and chewy, and nutty, and salty, and crunchy….. it’s just perfection.

And they’re super easy to make ahead! You can either make the brownies ahead, and store them on the counter or in the freezer, or you can finished them and stick them in the fridge or freeze once they’re all dolled up.

Whatever you do, don’t try to resist. The world is a better place when chocolate, caramel and peanut butter are involved.

Calories 183cal

Ingredients

For the brownies:

  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour I’ve used both whole wheat and all-purpose
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt

For the peanut butter frosting:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • Caramel sauce
  • Chopped salted peanuts

Instructions

  • For the brownies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line mini muffin pan with paper liners or spray with non-stick. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and sugar. Whisk until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and whisk until smooth. Add flour, cocoa and salt and whisk until just combined. Spoon into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out dry or with moist crumbs (you don’t want to overbake). Set aside to cool (*you can also store at room temperature or in the freezer until you’re ready to frost – see post above for details)
  • For the frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a handheld mixer), beat peanut butter and butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until combined. Add cream, 1 tbsp at a time (beating after each addition), until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Spoon into a piping bag fitted with desired tip or a large Ziploc bag (or just use a spoon – that’s fine too!)
  • To assemble, pipe a small amount of frosting onto each brownie. Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with chopped peanuts.
  • Store in the fridge up to 4 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

    I feel like pretty much every day lately is one where I have a million things to do but don’t get much done because I’m not being organized! But any day where brownies are baked is a good day. 🙂 These look amazing! I’d be licking that peanut butter frosting out of the bowl!

  3. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates says

  5. Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze says

    These sound perfect for those crazy days. Chocolate and snickers is a heaven. And I say who cares about getting anything done. Just taking care of the girls is work in its self. You get that done every day, hehe.

  6. Nora @ Savory Nothings says

    I’m just WAITING for the day my baby girl starts undoing all the prep work I do in the kitchen, haha! There’s hardly ever a day I feel like I accomplished something since I had her, so I totally feel you! But these brownie bites? Your accomplishment for the next year or so 😉

  7. Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says

    Ahh, the good ole “helping” from preschoolers. I never want to deny my daughter, but the tasks takes so much longer. At least we know our kids will bake when they are older, right?! These brownies look amazing! I’ll trade you my s’mores cheesecake I am finishing up today for your brownies 🙂
