Chocolate Fudge Brownie with Peanut Butter Frosting


So I had lunch with my grandma this weekend. Which means I am now stocked with bananas, peanut butter, jam, rice, and mentos. I don’t know why she buys these items so much…but she always loves sharing them with her children and grandchildren.

I was a bit in despair with this increase of goods to my apartment, and whilst perusing the wonders of Annie, I saw her new post of fudge brownies with peanut butter frosting. And man was I excited. I got to use up my peanut butter, bake, and use goods I have already in my kitchen to make something that looks oh so delicious.

The brownie came out amazing and the frosting. Well, I may or may not have been snacking on it while waiting for the brownie to cool….
