Let it be known (not that it was a secret before), I like peanut butter and chocolate together. I have seen so many different versions of peanut butter and chocolate brownies floating around. Some have peanut butter cups, some have just peanut butter, others have peanut butter chips or other candy. Well I had to jump on this bandwagon, late to the party or not! I didn’t want to have to go shopping though, so I raided my pantry. Guess what I found? Two Peanut Butter Twix candy bars from my son’s Easter Basket. As any parent out there, I ration the candy my son eats. So we end up with a lot of it on a shelf in our pantry. Every once in awhile I go through and clean it out. Now I am going have reason to do it more often. There are yummy treats in there, that should be turned into wonderful desserts!
Twix Peanut Butter Brownies
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 Twix Peanut Butter Candy Bars
Mix together chocolate and butter. Add in sugar and eggs, and stir until well combined. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix until just combined. Chop the candy into small pieces. Fold into the batter.
Pour into a prepared 8×8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool, and enjoy!
