Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies!

Hi chocolate munchkins!

I first wanted to quickly answer a question. A lot of y’all have asked if there’s a way to get my posts without having to remember to click on the website every day.

If it’s easier, you can get CCK recipes by email.

For today’s post, my friend, Scott, wanted me to show you his invention. He decided yesterday’s brownie bites would be even more exciting when stuffed with peanut butter. I swear, my influence is rubbing off on him; he’s starting to think like a foodie!

That’s not actually Scott’s stuffed brownie. His looked ugly! But, as he reminded me, “Who cares how it looks, Katie? It’s the taste that’s important. And this tastes awesome!” Spoken like a true foodie.

How to make Stuffed Brownie Bites:

You could shove a pastry bag up the bottom of the Fudge Munchkin. (Oh my gosh, how naughty does that sound?!) But I just cut out a little hole, piped the icing into the brownie bite from the top, and then piped on more icing to conceal the hole.

For the frosting: I mixed peanut butter with a little almond milk and agave to thin it out. Then I stuck it in a plastic bag and cut off the corner.

But you could also use Peanut Butter Frosting.

Scott had an even easier answer: He cut his brownie in half, spread on the frosting on the bottom half, and then messily smeared more pb frosting on top. Okay, so maybe he’s not such a foodie after all!

It’s a regal snack: Peanut butter crown on Chocolate Brownie Bites.

Question of the Day:

Are any of the guys you know foodies?

Or are they more like all my guy friends: if it’s food, they eat it! My dad, however, is the ultimate foodie, especially when it comes to wine and cheese. I think he likes Whole Foods even more than I do!

Also, how would you stuff your brownie bites?

How good would they be stuffed with Cookie Dough Dip?!

    Hehe. The only 2 guys I know well enough to evaluate if they are foodies (my brother and daddy) are highly picky! My dad like da baos (giant meat-filled steamed buns) but will only eat the most famous and most delicious. Its so difficult to satisfy him! My brother is a little easier to satisfy but refuses to try anything new! For example, in the yeasted category, he’ll only eat pizza, plain white bread and char siew buns. Oh, and they love anything that’s NOT healthy. What a bummer! Still trying to influence them into getting on with a healthy diet… Score 1 with managing to bet bro to like food from a Vegetarian stall more than his previous favourite stall (which only sells fried meats and vegetables cooked in puddles of oil eek)!

    As for the brownie bites, I’ll love to stuff them with chocolate/mocha custard or even some blueberries baked right into the brownies! Heaven on earth! 😀

  2. Jenny says

    Again, chocolate and peanut butter proves to be one of the most heavenly combinations on earth… 😀 As always, those treats look delicious! Even though it’s not necessarily “prettier” than the rest, the brownie bite with PB frosting that has chocolate chips added looks heavenly. Chocolate + PB… + more chocolate = awesome. How would I stuff my brownie bites otherwise, though? With more chocolate! (i.e. Molten lava brownie bites – like molten chocolate cake, with a cakey exterior but fudgy interior~)

    I have no foodie friends, haha! Most of the people I go out to dinner with “just eat”. They rarely ever say that something is bad, or critique their food, or pay attention to subtle flavours, etc. Only my mom takes the time to appreciate the finesse of some dishes and the quality of ingredients.

    Sine starting to read blogs, I’m glad that I’ve found I’m not the only one who enjoys grocery shopping at Whole Foods so much! I used to think I was just flat out crazy or something, hah.

    This looks perfect!
    And please, try to stuff them with cookie dought! I remember once upon a time (like 4 or 5 years ago 🙂 ) I made a brownie in a pan, spead cookie dough all over the top, and then melted chocolate as a top layer! EVERYBODY loved them!

  4. Tiff @ Love, Sweat & Beers says

    My hubby and I both dabble in foodie culture. For instance, we love good beer n’ cheese, especially when well paired, but we both also chow down on not so glamorous eats. Yeah, late night takeout Chinese, anyone? 🙂

  5. VeggieGirl says

    Suave Slav has an iron stomach, so he can handle any new/exotic food out there 🙂 He helps me to be more adventurous and to break out of my food ruts as well.

  6. tea-bag says

    most of the guys i know, i’ve met from working in kitchens so, yeah, they’re foodies – but they’d probably barf if they ever heard themselves referred to as that!

  7. Angela says

    I don’t think you can get much better than peanut butter and chocolate. I was thinking of stuffing them with a chocolate sauce, but maybe I will try the PB.

    My bf is a complete foodie. He’s the one that gave me to the link to your site in the first place. We are always trying to come up with healthier and tastier treats, which is why we have been experimenting with brownie recipes lately. So far, mine is the winner (flourless chocolate brownies). However, this could be the new contender, just hopefully he doesn’t see the recipe before I get a chance to make it!!

  8. katie @KatieDid says

    I know only one guy who really appreciates fine foods, and we have the greatest conversations about it! most guys I know forget to eat all day then stuff their faces with pizza or sandwiches! anything that will just fill them up. I could never do that haha! I think stuffing it with some kind of whipped cream would be delish!

  9. Meg! says

    I know a couple guy foodies – if only their names were Adam Levine or John Mayer…HA just kidding 😉 My “dood foodies” are more into different types of food than I am. Kinda like the Man vs. Food way 😉 haha!

    LOVE this recipe idea, Katie, you make me drool. Seriously. Ok…that sounded wrong…your GENIUS RECIPES make me drool 😀

    • Ellie says

      Hahaha dood foodies?!?! Funniest thing I’ve heard all week. Now I am totally going to call all my guy friends that. Too bad they are not picky at all when it comes to food :(.

  10. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says

    Ohh these look fabulous! My dad loves anything pb-chocolate so I think I might make these for him as a healthy alternative!

    For my brownies, I think they would be great stuffed with mint! Or maybe some sort of raspberry filling? That would look really pretty too! Hmm any suggestions on how to make one?

  11. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    Ohmygosh PB stuffed brownies?! That is my HEAVEN!! Actually no, cookie dough PB stuffed brownies would be my heaven…mmmm… 🙂

    Haha no most of my friends aren’t foodies at all!! They can’t believe that food shopping is practically a hobby and that Whole Foods is my second home! 😛

  12. Jill K says

    Yum! Cookie dough dip would be good in them! I have this weird thing for gummy bears and chocolate, so stick a gummy bear in a munchkin (wow, just pulled a you! *naughty*) or in an oreo ball and I am complete!

  13. Tricia says

    These look fantastic! You made something that was already good and made it even better. Genius :). I don’t really know any guys that are foodies. Most of my guy friends just eat lots of food no matter what it is lol.

  14. bitt of raw says

    How would I stuff my brownie bites? Into my mouth!

    Actually sometimes I put a bite of chocolate in my mouth then a spoonful of PB or another nut butter. Less mess. 🙂

  15. [email protected] of Sugar Free says

    Oh my gosh. I have been obsessed with my peanut butter frosting. I have a HUGE jar of peanut butter whipped up with almond milk sitting in my fridge. I put it on literally everything.

  16. Holly @ The Runny Egg says

    These look delicious!

    My father in law is trying to be a foodie 🙂 Now whenever I see him he tells me about some great recipe I used or a nice new product/seasoning he is going to try. It is hilarious but I’m glad he found something he really likes!

  17. Mary @ Bites and Bliss says

    That’s cute he actually made an attempt! My boyfriend’s the same way. He’s always saying he’ll try to make me something but I think he’s nervous since my blog’s half about food lmho. It’s cute, though..he’s so into food appearance around me, stacking pancakes perfectly and looking over my shoulder when I’m fixing oatmeal. Haha he’ll be a little blogger helper soon. 😉

  18. Emilia says

    Um, these look totally awesome. Wish I had thought of stuffing them with peanut butter! I would probably end up stuffing them with cookie dough, or a lighter frosting…so many possibilities 🙂 I have a couple of guy friends who think they are foodies, even though they totally are not.
