Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownies #Recipe

Last Updated on

I knew that Friday was going to be a rough day at school for my daughter.  A good friend of hers was moving out of state and Friday was her last day at school.  My daughter doesn’t handle goodbyes very well so I thought I would have a fun activity planned for us to do that night to keep her mind off of her sadness.  She loves to bake so I found a delicious brownie recipe on Taste of Home for us to make together (and EAT) to make her feel better.  Well, unfortunately she was too upset to even want to bake with me that night but I did get her to at least have one with a glass of milk.  These brownies are really rich and decadent and I highly recommend that you have a big glass of milk to go along with it!

  1. Never thought of adding cream cheese. Those look good!
  2. Peanut butter and cream cheese, that is a very unusual combination but definitely worth trying. The brownie looks amazing though. Thanks for the share.
  3. Do these have to be refrigerated?
