Tagalongs brownie recipe

Serves 16

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 boxes of Tagalongs
  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Mix your brownies to the package directions.
  2. Add 1 cup of peanut butter to your brownie batter, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Prepare your baking pan with non-stick spray and place one layer of Tagalongs across the bottom of the pan.
  4. Pour the brownie batter over the Tagalongs and bake the brownies as directed.

Peanut butter frosting

Ingredients:

  • 1 container of Cool Whip
  • 1/2-1 cup of creamy peanut butter (Start with 1/2 cup of peanut butter and add more as needed to taste.)
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. While your brownies are baking and cooling, mix your Cool Whip, powdered sugar and 1/2 cup of the peanut butter thoroughly with an electric mixer.
  2. Once your frosting is smooth, taste it and add more peanut butter as needed until your frosting has a flavor that you love.
  3. When your brownies have cooled, smooth on a generous layer of frosting.
  4. Then, cut a handful of Tagalongs into quarters to sprinkle along the top.

Tips

  • If your brownie mix calls for oil, use the same measuring cup for the peanut butter as you did for the oil. Your peanut butter will come out of the cup easily in this way.
  • Depending on how much Tagalong garnish you'd like to use on your brownies, you may need a second box of Tagalongs.
  • This recipe makes for a fabulous dessert bar, consider letting your family put their own Tagalongs brownies together.
  • And last, if you have any peanut butter frosting leftover, it makes for a wonderful dip for treats such as apples, bananas, graham crackers and pretzels.

So Abbey is allergic to peanut butter... I guess it's up to me to eat them all...
