I am so backlogged with the Pinterest recipes I have been meaning to try. I had a bunch of them printed up and sitting on the kitchen counter when Joey spotted this one. He picked the recipe up and asked, "When are you making these?!?!?". That was all the encouragement I needed to start baking.
They are very easy to make, and the reviews have been excellent. Since these brownies end up being quite thick, I suggest cutting them into fairly small squares. I ended up with about 30 bars. Twenty of those bars will go in the freezer to have a handy, homecooked dessert when needed.
9x13 pan of brownies, baked and cooled
1/4 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 & 1/4 cups pretzel m&m's
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and peanut butter until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the sugars, and continue creaming until light and fluffy, about 1 minute more. Add the milk and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Add the flour, and continue to mix at low speed until fully combined. Stir in the m&m's.
Spoon the cookie dough onto the cooled brownies and spread gently into an even layer. Slice into squares, and prepare for your life to change.
