Ingredients:

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the Peanut Butter Frosting:
    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    • 2-3 cups confectioners’ sugar
    • 1-2 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the Cookies:
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Make the Brownies:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

  2. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Let the brownies cool completely in the pan.

Peanut Butter Frosting

  1. Make the Peanut Butter Frosting:
    While the brownies are cooling, make the frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the peanut butter and softened butter together until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in the confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. If the frosting is too thick, add more milk until desired consistency is reached.

  2. Make the Cookies:
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

  3. Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Assemble the Sandwiches:
    Once the cookies and brownies are completely cooled, it’s time to assemble the sandwiches. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter frosting on the bottom of one cookie. Place a brownie on top of the frosting and then spread another thin layer of frosting on top of the brownie. Top with another cookie and enjoy!
