Semi-Homemade PB Truffle Brownies

If you already know me, you know that I am a jane-of-all-trades. In our house, my time is pretty valuable what with all my (outside) jobs and all my children! So as I was home with a sick child yesterday, (who was intermittently napping) I needed to use my time wisely.<--Is this considered multi-tasking? Hmm...

I decided to bake the Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies I found on Pinterest. If you read the recipe, there are three steps:

  1. The brownie part
  2. The peanut butter filling
  3. The chocolate ganache
If I can be totally candid here, why on earth would I make brownies from scratch, when I know of a perfectly good box mix! (Plus, it was on sale! Score!)

I won't say I've coined the phrase "semi-homemade," those kudos would go to Sandra Lee of Food Network. But I have to agree with her mentality, some of us are just busy bees (you know, blogging, photo editing and all!)

So, according to Husband, he found these brownies "delightful!" He is my biggest critic, so if he says it's good (and takes a HUGE piece with him to work) then it's good!

Hopefully this semi-homemade (shortcut) version will work for you too!

  1. Yum! PB brownies are second only to mint brownies in my book. But then I am the mint version of a crack addict. i looooooooooove chocolate mint and peppermint. Mmmmmmm....

  2. Best use of time ever.

    Well done.

  3. I want some of those, Suzanne. You're going to have to mail some to me.

    Too bad I don't live in your house... :)
