- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat Your Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×9-inch baking pan.
Melt the Chocolate and Butter: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and unsalted butter. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until the mixture is smooth and fully melted.
Combine Sugar, Eggs, and Vanilla: In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Add Peanut Butter: Gently fold in the creamy peanut butter into the sugar and egg mixture until well combined.
Mix Dry Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Gradually add this dry mixture to the peanut butter mixture, stirring until just combined.
Add Melted Chocolate: Pour the melted chocolate and butter mixture into the batter. Stir until the chocolate is evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
Cool and Enjoy: Allow the Peanut Butter Chocolate Decadence to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before cutting it into delicious squares. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a glass of cold milk for the ultimate indulgence.
