Okay, so I experimented with brownies this week, and they turned out SO yummy. My husband was out of town, it had been a long week, and I was craving chocolate. I usually make brownies from scratch, but it was late, and since also love Ghirardelli Double Chocolate boxed brownies, I whipped up a batch. Then I thought I needed a little peanut butter, cream cheese, and chocolate ganache to go with it. :)

Though I love how it turned out, I don’t have exact measurements since I was experimenting, but I’ll do my best to explain what I did.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownies


1 box brownie mix, baked according to package directions
1 package cream cheese, softened
approx. 1/2 c. peanut butter
approx. 1/2-3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
8-10 T. heavy cream

Bake your brownie mix according to package directions, and let cool completely. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy, then add peanut butter and mix well. Add more peanut butter if you want to—these measurements are approximate. Slowly add the powdered sugar, and beat until fully incorporated. You will want to taste this-and add more sugar if necessary. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownies evenly.

In a glass bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave–stirring every 30 seconds until melted just enough to stir well. Slowly add the heavy cream, and stir until smooth. Pour over cream cheese mixture, making sure to get to all the edges.

If you’re impatient like I am, you can eat them right away. If not, let the chocolate firm up in the fridge, then cut into squares. You will want to eat the whole pan!
