Nutter Butter Stuffed Brownie Bars are a quick and easy bar recipe that combine two of my favorite flavors – chocolate and peanut butter! These simple brownies are perfect served warm or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Nutter Butter Stuffed Brownie Bars

At 36 weeks pregnant, I’ve been quite a slacker in the kitchen. But it was my cousin/bff’s birthday so I made her these brownie bars and some pudding cookies.

I’m also working on Sunday dinner, which hasn’t happened in weeks. Maybe it’s my last hurrah before the baby gets here. 25 days til her estimated delivery date. !!!!!Nutter Butter Stuffed Brownie Bars are a quick and easy bar recipe perfect with vanilla ice cream

It’s been awhile since I have taken a shortcut but these brownie bars are definitely semi-homemade. It was a nice break, especially since I was also making cookies from scratch (that I’ll post at some point this week) and was short on time. I think they’re pretty impressive and very good. Especially with a glass of milk.

Servings 25 bars

Ingredients
  

  • 25 Nutter Butter cookies
  • 1 pack 18 oz of brownie mix (I used Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup peanuts crushed

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a medium jelly roll pan (I use a Pampered Chef stoneware pan - it's something like 8" x 12").
  • Arrange the cookies in the pan - 5 rows, 5 cookies per row. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add the brownie mix, water, oil, and eggs. Stir until combined (I use a spatula) - about 50 strokes.
  • Pour the brownie batter over the cookies and spread evenly with the spatula. I had too much batter (about a cup) that I made separately in a small pan.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the brownie portion comes out clean.
  • Once done, remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the brownie. Let them melt for about 3 minutes then spread the chocolate over the top. It should spread easily if you let them melt enough. Once spread evenly, sprinkle the crushed peanuts over the top.
  • Let cool and then slice into bars. I popped mine into the fridge to set up quicker and they sliced easily.
