  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together the butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand for a minute, then spread the chips to form a layer.
  4. To make the topping, blend together the 2/3 cup peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and shortening. Gradually stir in the milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Gently mix in the whipped topping. Chill. When brownies and topping are both cooled, spread topping onto brownies and cut into bars.

Excellent! Everyone loved them! I didn't add the frozen whipped topping though...but still turned out awesome! I am making them again tonight! :)

Followed recipe exactly and I got a greasy, hardly cooked, flat pan of batter. While making this recipe, I'm wondering why they are even called brownies. There is no chocolate other than the chocolate chips you sprinkle on top. Not even the topping was that great. Won't be making again.

This recipe is very dense and creamy, but pretty awesome. You do have to love peanut butter. I particularly like the frosting, and will be using it in other recipes as well. Thanks!

I'm not sure what went wrong but I had to bake the brownie part a really, really long time to get it to set up in the center. The edges got really done and it made for a funky shaped dessert. It tasted pretty good, but I think I like a little more chocolate with my peanut butter. I'll probably make a custom version of this, it definitly has potential.

I don't think I could have loved this more! It was like a party in heaven in my mouth haha. I wasn't too sure about having just the peanut butter brownie, so I layered it with a chocolate brownie (I really liked this one: and layered them both in two pans. The cook time that worked for me was around 25 minutes at 335 degrees. The peanut butter layer was more the texture of a soft cookie but it worked wonderfully. After it was done I added the toppings of this recipe as called for. If you love peanut butter and chocolate, I have no doubt you will love this.

I use the peanut butter cream from this recipe in combination with my own brownies but trust me, the peanut butter mixture is amazing! Worth 5 stars!

I took this into work for one of the girls birthdays! They loved it!!! You have to like peanut butter!! I also used dark chocolate instead of regular.

They were ok but I guess I like a lot more chocolate. I drizzled melted choc. chips over topping just to make it a little more chocolately.
