These peanut butter fudge brownies are rich chocolate brownies with a simple peanut butter fudge center!


  • 18 Tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into Tbsp-sized pieces)
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup natural cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Peanut Butter Fudge
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips*
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 13x9 pan with baking spray
  • Combine butter and chocolate chips in a large, microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well, microwave for another 15 seconds and then stir well again. Repeat for 15 seconds until chocolate and butter are completely melted and well-combined.
  • Add cocoa powder and stir well.
  • Add sugars, stir until completely combined.
  • Add eggs and then egg yolk, one at a time, stirring well after each addition
  • Add vanilla extract and salt, stir to combine.
  • Add flour, stir until completely combined.
  • Spread approximately 1/2 of the batter evenly into prepared pan and make your peanut butter fudge
  • Combine white chocolate chips, condensed milk, and peanut butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • Stir frequently until white chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract and salt, and pour evenly over brownie batter in pan, use a spatula to spread evenly, if necessary.
  • Allow to set for about 5 minutes, and then spread the remaining batter over the fudge, doing your best to cover completely with brownie batter.
  • Bake on 350F for 40-50 minutes, use a toothpick to check for doneness at 40 minutes (toothpick should come out with few fudgy moist crumbs, but not wet batter).
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving. The longer you allow the brownies to set the firmer the fudge will become.

Recipe Notes

*For a stronger peanut butter flavor, you may use peanut butter chips instead and omit the actual peanut butter. Peanut butter chips can be difficult to find, which is why I wrote this using white chocolate chips.
