Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

Janece Perkins brought this yummy dessert recipe that she found on RealMomKitchen. You have to be careful with peanut butter & chocolate recipes because they can very easily become too rich. This had all the right balance so there was plenty of the moist chocolate and rich peanut butter, yet didn't stick to the roof of your mouth!

1 box Betty Crocker Original Supreme brownie mix
ingredients called for on box

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 9x13" pan with cooking spray or shortening.(For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan.)
In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup, water, oil and eggs until well blended. Spread in pan. bake 28-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

1/2 C butter, softened
1/2-3/4 C creamy peanut butter
2 C powdered sugar
2 tsp milk

In medium bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownie base.

1 C semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 C butter
In small, microwavable bowl, microwave topping ingredients uncovered on high 30-60 seconds; stir until smooth. Cool 10 minutes; spread over filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set. Store covered in refrigerator. (Best if taken out of the fridge about 15 minutes before serving so the chocolate topping has time to soften for cutting.)
