How Do You Make Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies?

I use my Brownie Recipe, which happens to be the best ever…try it if you haven’t already…BUT I added peanut butter cookie dough (egg-free of course) on top in a nice thick layer, because chocolate and peanut butter together is pure love.

Feel free to use any brownie recipe you would like, you can even use a boxed mix if you’re in a pinch! The fun part comes when you add the peanut butter cookie dough all over the top!

AND when you add the spider garnish, they become festive and spooky, PERFECT for your Halloween party!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough BrowniesHow To make Peanut Butter Cup Spiders

  1. Use 2 different sizes of peanut butter cups, the miniature and itty bitty ones.
  2. On the smallest ones I piped on eyes with black frosting.  You could also use the black gel, or even black candy melts.
  3. I placed them on the brownies, you can do it when they are cut or still in the pan.
  4. I used Chocolate Twizzlers for the legs…I just cut them skinny… you could also use pretzels or black licorice.

    These sound delicious! Can’t wait to try the recipe! Question: Do they need to be refrigerated, (because of the peanut butter cookie dough)?

  2. They are so cute and oh my gosh, those brownies and the peanut butter cookie dough frosting look incredible! Seriously, you are dessert genius and you know how to make the cute as ever too!

  3. Oh they look so good! I did a guest post on another site about 6 mos ago and made brownies that look similar to these but I called it peanut butter-buttercream. I am in love with your concept of spreadable PB cookie dough! SO thick and rich! I love all things PB 🙂
