With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

An old family favorite are these brownies topped with a
peanut butter and cream cheese frosting.
I have made them umpteen times and they are now a favorite of my
son-in-laws family too and often requested instead of birthday cake.
Start with your favorite Brownie mix baked according to directions on box.
Peanut Butter Brownies
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter, softened
3-oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons milk

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon shortening

In large bowl, combine powered sugar, peanut butter, butter, cream cheese and milk; beat until light and fluffy.

Spread evenly over 1 pan cooled brownies.

In a small microwavable cup, melt chocolate chips and shortening on half power until melted, about 1 minute.  Stir well and drizzle over frosting.
