In the peanut butter brownie recipe it already gives you the ingredients for a chocolate drizzle. If you are more of a peanut butter person you can also warm up peanut butter and drizzle it on top. You can combine both chocolate and peanut butter together as a mixed drizzle or choose just one. Another good idea is, if you are serving this desert in the comfort of your own home, you can have both chocolate and peanut butter drizzle in separate serving dishes and let people choose their own topping.
In the very slim chance you have leftovers of your Peanut Butter Brownies you can store them in your refrigerator. If you are a meal planner and organized you can make your peanut butter brownies and freeze them for later enjoyment. Remember if you’re going to freeze them, cut your brownies into squares and layer them in your container with parchment paper on the bottom layer and in between each bar if you are stacking them.
