Are you a cake-y brownie person or a fudgy brownie person? I’m all about rich, chewy fudge-like brownies myself and Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies are the cream of the crop.

Chocolate and peanut butter together is an irresistible dessert combination. These chocolate brownies have chunks of real peanut butter fudge mixed into the batter. Every bite is a chocolate and peanut butter lover’s dream come true.

Peanut Butter Brownies

I was craving brownies the other day and set out to make a fresh batch. Then, I remembered I had some of this Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge leftover in the fridge.

Who could resist the temptation to add creamy peanut butter goodness to already delicious brownies? Not this girl!

Like the Rich Chocolate Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting I’ve been making for a while, these brownies are decadent, chocolate-y and full of great peanut butter flavor. The peanut butter fudge made the brownies plenty sweet and rich without needing any frosting at all.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

There are so many ways to enjoy this classic combination!

If you love the fudge used in this peanut butter brownie recipe, you’re sure to go nuts for this Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge and this Buckeye Fudge. Both use creamy peanut butter fudge plus dark chocolate fudge for the ultimate in sweet treats to share.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies are a no-bake dessert you need to have in your fridge or freezer. They’re so easy to make and satisfying to snack on throughout the day.

When it comes to no-bake chocolate and peanut butter desserts, my whole family can get enough Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars or these No-Bake Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites. For me, a devoted lover of coconut desserts, it doesn’t get any tastier than No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bites.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream has been a kid favorite in my house for years now and this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream is another incredibly easy homemade ice cream that also happens to be dairy-free. If it’s frozen treats you’re after, you might also enjoy this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie.

I’ve bookmarked Texan Erin’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread to make soon. I can’t wait to try it with fruit and spread on toast for breakfast and snacks! I also love the sound of this Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart from Life, Love and Sugar.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

There’s nothing wrong with using a brownie mix from a box–we’ve all been known to reach for them from time to time. But homemade brownies made from scratch are something special.

While I already had some peanut butter fudge made and ready to go, it’s well worth making a quick batch just for these brownies. Like most of my fudge recipes, it can be made in the microwave in just minutes before setting up in the fridge.

These peanut butter fudge brownies aren’t any more difficult to make than a regular chocolate brownie but they look and taste like something from a fancy bakery. And when you bake your own brownies, you get the added bonus of filling your whole house with the smell of chocolate and peanut butter. 

Put on a pot of fresh coffee at the same time and your kitchen’s likely to become the most popular place on the block. When I smell those three things together, I can’t stay away.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies smelled so good while they were baking that it took all of my self-control not to cut into them before they were cooled.

When it comes to brownies, it’s super important to wait until they’re completely cool to dig in with your knife. Cutting into brownies while they’re still warm is a sure fire way to make them fall apart. I promise the extra few minutes of cooling time are worth the wait!

With crispy crackling tops, a chewy chocolate inside and bits of real peanut butter fudge in every brownie, this was just about the perfect dessert to share or eat up all on your own. The richness of these brownies is balanced nicely by a cup of coffee, tea or glass of milk.

I can hardly wait to make another batch of Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies during the holidays! I have a strong feeling they’ll be making more than an occasional appearance in my baking rotation.
