Brownies for Michelle

They were good!


One of my facebook fans straight up asked if I could try and make some brownies she’d had at a fundraiser, and gave me the description. I’m not sure if I came even close, but regardless these were tasty!

I guess I do requests now!

These are my “fudgey brownies with a peanut-buttery milk chocolate topping with mini chocolate chips”.




  • 3 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chips (I used a dark sea salt chocolate bar chopped up)


  • 1 270g bag of milk chocolate chips, or about 1 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 handfull-ish of mini chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350.

Melt the chocolate and butter together and allow to cool. If you're absent minded or have a weird stove, do this over a double boiler.




While it's cooling, in another bowl sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.




Add granulated sugar, eggs, egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Add to flour mixture and stir until combined.



Yeeheehee. Stir in chocolate chips, or chunks. And pour into parchment lined square pan. 8x8 is best, I used a 9x9. If your pan is larger, cook the brownie less.



Remember, parchment is your friend. Your long lost friend that will unravel the entire roll onto the floor every time you use it, and never rip evenly. But you still keep around and invite to parties anyway.



Bake for 20-25 minutes, or when a toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs still attached. Let this cool! A bit, we don't have forever, we're making brownies here. We need time to EAT them.



Mix milk chocolate and peanut butter and melt until smooth.


Pour mixture over entire brownie in pan. Lick fingers, pot, spatula, counter, wherever this stuff falls. Man, I'm just going to start making peanut butter chocolatey stuff and eating THAT.

Sprinkle liberally with mini chocolate chips. Pop in fridge and allow to cool completely before slicing. Unless you're not brownie-shallow like me and don't care about looks. Eat it!



Then watch your friend Bryan eat at least 5 of these, and a few sandwiches you make for dinner. Seriously. He eats everything.
