It’s Secret Recipe Club time Smile If you are still not part of this amazing club I highly suggest you join. It’s so much fun! This month I was assigned the blog Penny-Pinching Provisions and immediately fell in love with two recipes.  I must have been craving chocolate since both recipes were for brownies.

Then it hit me. Why not combine the two recipes? So, with recipes in hand I set off to combine Nutella Spiked Brownies and Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting….yum!

The brownies turned out ooey and gooey and had just the right amount of Nutella flavor.  The frosting reminded me a lot of peanut butter fudge.  In fact it felt like I was eating soft peanut butter fudge over top gooey brownies…I was in heaven! (My frosting to brownie ratio was a bit off because I halved the brownie recipe but not the frosting)

[…] when I make brownies I opt to make a recipe that is super fudgy and covered in frosting (hello peanut butter frosted Nutella brownies!) but these brownies have a different texture. A little bit cakey but full of big chocolate flavor. […]

Looks good..I have a question though.. Why is the frosting in the picture doesn't look like a "frosting"? it kinda looked like a peanut butter brownie?

It looks a little different because it's more of a "fudgy" frosting then whipped. It's really delicious!
