Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

The wedding I went to recently was held at a casino/ resort, where they had a little bakery area that sold Starbucks coffee and a huge array of every kind of pastry, candy, fudge, dessert, etc. that you can imagine. They had an especially delicious peanut butter truffle brownie. It was basically a really rich brownie that tasted like peanut butter fudge. Or, looking at it another way, fudge with a little bit of brownie mixed in. I showed restraint by only having one three out of the four days that I was there. Now back at home, I tried to recreate it myself. The result wasn't too bad.

I baked a plain old brownie mix from the box. When that was done and cooling, I melted together half a bag of chocolate chips, half a bag of peanut butter chips, and a can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan. (That part's adapted from the fudge recipe I make at Christmas.) Then I spread the fudge in a layer on top of the brownies and chilled to harden. I think it's best to let it chill overnight. And next time I may increase the ration of peanut butter chips to chocolate chips. Or possibly make the fudge layer a bit thinner and spread a layer of real peanut butter between that and the brownie.

It sounds like I may have to try this many more times to come up with the perfect formula. It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
