Peanut Butter Chocolate Drizzle Brownies

I came up with these one night when I wanted to dress up some brownies I'd made. You can make peanut butter and chocolate drizzle to dress up store bought or homemade brownie. I also like to sprinkle a small handful of chocolate chips or Resess's Piece. Both this topping can be made in minutes with things you always have in your kitchen. Only two ingredients are needed for the peanut butter drizzle and only for to make the chocolate, which is similar to a loose chocolate butter cream.

Peanut Butter Drizzle
1/3 c peanut butter
1/2 tbsp butter or margarine

You can either use crunchy or smooth peanut butter. Chunky will end up in little drops over the brownies while smooth will be able to be actually drizzled. Put the peanut butter and butter in a glass measuring cup and microwave in increments of 15 seconds and stir and continue until it is smooth. Then use a spoon to drizzle it onto your brownies.

Chocolate Drizzle
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1+ tsp milk
1/2+ c powder sugar

Sorry that the measurements are exact, I forgot just how much I added by the end. Soften the butter in the microwave then mix in the butter and powder sugar. Add a little milk. Then add more milk or powder sugar until it is a drizzling consistency and taste right. I suggest doing this in a glass measuring cup and you can either pour or use a spoon to drizzle it over the brownies.

If you want at this point to can sprinkle on chocolate chips, peanuts, or Resess's Pieces.
