Peanut Butter Slutty Brownies


A while back I made these Slutty Brownies, inspired by What’s Gaby Cooking and they have been one of the most popular recipes on the site. And, one of our favorite things to take to ANY event in which bringing something is a requirement. They go fast. People rave about them–it feels good to have your food loved.

I was thinking about the dessert table for Thanksgiving and getting some cookie platters together for Christmas and my mind wandered to these goodies.

I mean, why does it always have to be about the pie?

I started to think about ways to modify these brownies for an even tastier treat and I think I may have found it–especially if you are peanut butter lover.

These start with a layer of chocolate chip cookie, peanut butter sandwich cookies in the middle and a layer of peanut butter blondies on the top.

Um, yum!

I actually tried two different versions—one using peanut butter cookies with peanut cream in them (similar to Nutter Butters, but I used an organic brand) and another using Newman O’s with the chocolate cookie with peanut butter filling. Both were great.  But, the ones with the Nutter Butter like cookies were better.  So much better, in fact, that I couldn’t get a photo of them.

The Newman O peanut butter sandwich cookies is definitely more photogenic, though.  Don’t you agree?

You could even use plain ol’ Oreos in the middle and tone down the peanut butter a tad. But, if you love peanut butter–you might not want to do that.

There are so many possibilities!

Like the slutty brownies, these are super easy to whip up.

Super easy for everyone to eat too.

Even if you don’t put these out for Thanksgiving, keep them in your back pocket for a show stopping holiday dessert.
