Peanut Butter Mousse Brownies


Everyone that knows me knows I DO NOT like to bake! Dislike it.  Too much perfection required! I like to change recipes and add this and that, not measure everything perfectly, and baking is not me! BUT, because a close friend is having a birthday soon I thought I would try something other than my “go to cake recipe”.  So after some searching and looking I came across this recipe from the mostlyhomemademom website . This took some time and measuring but it was well worth it! Thankfully I made it on a Sunday afternoon and sent the leftovers with my husband to work.  Well, it seems his co-workers enjoyed it as much as we did as the dish came home with a note of thanks and a “please refill and return”!  (Thanks Craig!) I love my taste testers!

On to the recipe.

20 oz. box of dark chocolate brownie mix (ignore ingredients on box)
3 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup water
8 oz package of Reese’s Minis, chopped

Peanut Butter Mousse ingredients
1 cup creamy peanut butter
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
8 oz  Cool Whip, thawed
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl whisk eggs , add brownie mix, melted butter, and water, stir until well mixed. Batter will be slightly lumpy.  Stir in 3/4 cup chopped Reese’s. Spread batter into 9×13 baking dish.  Bake for 30 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool completely.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat peanut butter and cream cheese. Add in powdered sugar, small amounts at a time, beating after each addition. Gently fold in Cool Whip. Spread over COOLED brownies, sprinkle with remaining Reese’s .

In a microwave safe bowl heat chocolate chips at 30 second intervals until melted. Drizzle over brownies.

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
