Steps To Make Peanut Butter Brownie Pizza:
Step 1: To begin preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Prepare your brownie mix according to the package instructions for the cake variation.
Step 3: Using a touch lightly spray two 9-inch round cake pans, with non-stick spray. Line them with parchment paper. Give another spray. Next evenly divide the brownie mix between the two pans.
Step 4: Bake the brownies for 15 to 20 minutes until the center is set right. Once done allow them to cool completely. Remember to remove them from the baking pans before moving on to decorating.
Step 5: In a medium-sized bowl blend together peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until smooth. If needed you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk for the right consistency.
Step 6: Now comes the fun part! Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the brownie base. Let your creativity shine as you decorate with peanuts and mouthwatering peanut butter cups.
Step 7: In a microwave bowl melt milk chocolate chips, with coconut oil for 30 seconds. Mix it well. Then elegantly pour it over your toppings.
Step 8: Keep it refrigerated until you’re prepared to impress your guests. However, it’s most enjoyable when consumed immediately.
Before you spread the peanut butter and cream cheese mixture, over the brownie base it’s an idea to refrigerate the mixture for around 10 minutes. This will give it a texture ensuring that when you spread it you create a smooth and delightful layer without messing up the brownie underneath. The end result is a combination of flavors, in every bite.
