Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

If you love peanut butter and chocolate these are a must try brownie for you. Warning they are very naughty--You just want to keep snitching; they call to you "EAT ME!".  It is like a chewy Reese's Cup! YUMMO!! I want to believe that if you are generous enough to share and send plates of these goodies home with your company that they have little if any calories in them! ;-)
If you try these little gems you won't be disappointed. Take them to your next potluck party and watch them disappear!

Brownie Base
1 box (1lb 6.5 oz) Betty Crocker Original Supreme brownie mix, water, vegetable oil ad eggs called for on the brownie box. (I used whatever Box Brownie I had on hand that was for a 9 x 13 pan)

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter (I used about 2 Tablespoons and I think it worked fine. Got to try to cut out some of the fat so I don't feel SO GUILTY (he he haha) right?!

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 13 X 9-inch pan with cooking spray or shortening. For easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan.

In a medium bowl, sir brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup, water, oil, and eggs until well blended. (I just made my box of brownies as it instructed!) Spread in pan. Bake 28 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from the side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely about 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread mixture evenly over brownie base.

In small microwavable bowl, microwave topping ingredients uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds; stir until smooth. Cool 10 minutes; spread over filling. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set. For Brownies cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator (If you are lucky enough to have any left over to store call us we will be right over!)

Those look very sinful... I may have to try them with our gf recipe. I think my family would like that a lot.
