Slutty Brownies: A Second Recipe, with Peanut Butter and More Calories than Last Time

So Overfatty Cakes turned out to be one of the most popular posts to date. You really seemed to enjoy reading about these fat bombs.

And suggesting additions.

Some people suggested Nutella, gianduja, (David and his hazelnuts), candy, and Quinn, ever adventurous, suggested cake mix, saying something along the lines of "we do this stuff in Utah all the time."

Then my friend Noah suggested the best thing ever: peanut butter.

I love peanut butter. I put it on everything. I eat it all the time. It makes dessert even more awesome.

It also adds a ton of calories to whatever it is in. Of course, I couldn't resist.

So I made slutty brownies...for my entire dorm.

Brownies | Peanut Butter and Oreo | Sugar Cookie | Heaven

I got creative with the middle layer. Peanut butter is difficult to play with, but it cooperates once you...crush the Oreos into it. Yes, crush the Oreos.

Adding the peanut-butter-Oreo layer.

Anyway, here is the second slutty brownie recipe. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Slutty Brownies

Sugar Cookie Dough

1 stick butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 2/3 cups flour
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Middle layer

1/2 large jar peanut butter
24 Oreos, broken into pieces


6 oz. chocolate chips
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder.

1. Grease a 9x13 baking pan.

2. Cream together the butter and sugar for the cookie dough until smooth.

3. Add egg, flour, vanilla, and baking powder. Knead into the butter-sugar mixture.

4. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the baking pan until you have an even, but thin layer on the bottom.

5. Mix together the broken Oreos and peanut butter until the Oreos are equally distributed in the peanut butter. Spread evenly over the cookie dough, but it can be a little bumpy. Fill in the holes with extra peanut butter.

6. Melt the chocolate and the butter together to create a ganache. Set aside to cool.

7. Preheat the oven to 350F/175C.

8. Mix the ganache and the other brownie ingredients together to form a consistent batter. I suggest mixing the ganache and sugar first.

9. Pour the batter on top of everything and spread evenly to cover.

10. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out only with a few crumbs and bits of peanut butter and Oreo cream. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.

On a less diabetes-inducing note, my friend Jonathan (yes, there are more of us - Jewish boys named Jonathan are like maple saplings, we take root everywhere) has a nice new blog called Besides Much Cattle. Link is in the blogroll.
