Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies
  • 1 batch brownies, baked in an 8x8 pan and cooled {I used this one}
For the cookie dough:
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup peanut butter M&Ms, chopped (optional)
For the glaze:
  • 3½ ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
For the cookie dough:
  1. Beat butter, sugars, and peanut butter in a large bowl using an electric mixer until light and creamy (about 2 or 3 minutes). Mix in milk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir in M&Ms, if using.
  2. Spread the dough over the top of the cooled brownies. Refrigerate while you make the glaze.
For the glaze:
  1. Melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Once melted, pour the mixture over the top of the cookie dough and spread into a thin layer. Chill until set, about 30 minutes.
  2. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
