Fall is the best time for baking, right? Every Autumn I find myself itching to bake all sorts of yummy things, and lots of times after hours of making a huge mess and following elaborate instructions, I end up with a yucky disaster. I was sent a whole bunch of McCormick extracts and spices to play with. But this time I wanted to make something that would be yummy and simple and fast.
I was inspired by the McCormick recipe for Mexican Chocolate brownies and I came up with these Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Brownies. These are the perfect combination of fall flavor and chocolately-peanut butter goodness. And they are VERY easy to make, thanks to my semi-homemade cheater method. I only use half a container of frosting because the first time I made these I used the whole container and it was just too much frosting and made the whole thing VERY rich. So go ahead and use all of it if you want VERY rich brownies! All you have to do is mix up the brownie mix with the water, oil, and egg. Then add the vanilla and cinnamon and beat until well blended. Then stir in your peanut butter candy of choice. And of course let your own little “Cookie Monster” lick the spoon, once you’ve transferred the whole thing to the baking pan. After they’ve cooked and cooled, spread the frosting and top with more peanut butter candy!
- 1 Package Brownie Mix & ingredients needed to make...oil, egg, water
- McCormick's Cinnamon--1 teaspoon
- McCormick's Vanilla Extract-- 2 tablespoons
- 1 Cup Peanut Butter Candies-- 1 Cup
- Pre-made frosting -- ½ container
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. coffee extract
- Mix the Brownie mix, then add the teaspoon of cinnamon, vanilla extract, and mix well. Add in the Peanut Butter candies. Pour in a sprayed 9x9 pan and bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes. Mix half the frosting with 1 tsp. cinnamon and coffee extract. Once they are cooled, spread with the frosting and sprinkle with more candy for decorating. These are easier to cut once the frosting has had some time to harden a bit.
