Peanut Butter Brownie Bombs

I am a total sucker for brownies.  Especially slightly underbaked brownies.  I always take mine out of the oven a few minutes early and let them bake a little longer in the pan outside the oven because while I adore brownies, there is absolutely nothing more disappointing than a dried out one.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pkg fudge brownie mix, baked and cooled (I like Betty Crocker’s Family sized fudge brownies)
  • 18-oz semisweet chocolate or chocolate candy melts
  • Sprinkles for decorating the tops


Directions:
  1. 1. Make the brownies according to the box. Make sure to follow the direction to make fudgy brownies and not cake-like ones. Cook in a 13×9 pan. Cool.
  2. 2. While brownies are cooling, make the peanut butter balls. In a bowl, whisk together peanut butter, powdered  sugar, salt and vanilla. Make sure you get all the lumps out.
  3. 3. Chill the peanut butter mixture for 15-30 minutes in the freezer to make it easier to roll the
  4. balls.
  5. 4. Remove from freezer, scoop TBSP of mixture and roll into a ball. Repeat with all the peanut butter mixture.
  6. 5. Cut the brownies into small squares, about 1 ½” in size. Pick up a square and gently flatten it with your palm.
