Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

My sister found these brownies at Creations by Kara. She knew she was making them right then and there, and she did, and she loved them and everyone else did too! She said they even got better with age. You can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. She said the peanut butter topping tasted like a creamy Reese's Pieces. Um hello?! They are rich and decadent, just like any good dessert should be in my book! I hope you all enjoy them as much as my family did.

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies
recipe from Creations by Kara

Brownie Layer:
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
3/4-1 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups oil
3/4 cup milk
Combine all ingredients in order listed and mix till smooth. Pour into a well greased 15×10″ jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Cool completely.
Truffle Layer:
1/4 cup soft butter
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
5-6 Tbsp milk
Beat butter and peanut butter together. Add powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, and enough milk till mixture is creamy. It will be thicker than regular frosting. You can kind of spread and pat it onto the top of the brownies with the back of a spoon.
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips *3/4 cup would be plenty
2-3 Tbsp vegetable oil *if using 3/4 cup chips, cut back on the oil too!
For the topping, combine 2 Tbsp of the oil and the chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave at 50% power till melted, stirring often. Add more oil if needed. Drizzle over the top of the brownies.

***Best when served chilled!
