Brownies with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Icing

I found this on Pinterest and had to try it. Yum!

For the brownie:

  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 c. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/3 c. cocoa
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and set aside

In a medium saucepan combine butter, cocoa and water and bring to boiling while stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add chocolate mixture to the flour mixture, beat on medium speed until combined.

Add eggs, vanilla and buttermilk & beat for one minute (batter will be thin)

Pour into greased 9 X 13 pan

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes

For the icing:
  • 1/4 c. butter, softened
  • 1/4 c. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c. reduced fat peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 c. confectioner’s sugar
Cream together first three ingredients and then gradually add sugar to desired consistency, The milk can be left out for a stiffer icing, or if the milk makes the icing too thin, additional sugar can be added. Spread on cooled brownies.
