These Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies are such a great way to make a boxed brownie mix taste even better. I don’t know what it is but there’s truly nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate together, and these are delicious with the triple layer combo.
The fudge brownie base is soft, chewy, and rich and combines beautifully with the creamy peanut butter truffle layer. And to really bring it home these peanut butter fudge brownies are topped with a simple milk chocolate ganache that make it taste similar to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I mean is there anything better than that?!
One thing I wanted to mention about these delicious brownies is they taste even better the next day, so I’d definitely recommend making them ahead of time.

RECOMMENDED KITCHEN TOOLS FOR PEANUT BUTTER BROWNIES
- Electric Hand Mixer
- Large Glass Mixing Bowl
- 13×9 Glass Baking Dish or 8×8 Glass Baking Dish
- Rubber Spatula
- Large Offset Spatula (for spreading the layers)
Quick Tips for The Best Fudge Brownies:
- For fudgy, chewy brownies, don’t overmix the batter. Similar to muffins, you want to stir until just combined so that they turn out super moist and fudgy.
- Don’t overbake your brownies. Check them at the lowest recommended time and remove when the brownies are still ever so slightly gooey in the middle. They will continue to cook while they cool, resulting in a delicious fudge-like brownie.
- Allow the brownies to fully cool before icing and refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting bars.

Decadent Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies are made with a fudge brownie box mix and topped with delicious layers of peanut butter truffle and milk chocolate ganache. These easy peanut butter fudge brownies are so good and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!
- 1 16 oz Fudge brownie box mix, prepared as directed with water, oil, and egg (We love Betty Crocker!)
Peanut Butter Truffle
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon milk*
- 1/2 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Heat oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 9×13 glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Prepare brownie box mix and bake as directed on box. If you prefer a thicker brownie and want thicker layers, use an 8×8 baking dish instead, but keep in mind the baking times will differ.
- Once brownies are baked, remove from oven and cool on a wire cooling rack for 1 hour.
- While brownies are finishing cooling, prepare the peanut butter truffle layer by combining softened butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and milk in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
- Spread peanut butter truffle mixture over the cooled brownie base using an offset spatula.
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips 15-30 seconds at a time, stirring in intervals until smooth.
- Let cool for 10 minutes before dropping by spoonfuls on top of the peanut butter layer and spreading evenly. If desired, use a knife and lightly swirl the layers together (this makes it look pretty!)
- Cover brownies and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Cut and slice brownies into desired serving size and enjoy!
- For a thicker brownie and thicker layers, prepare brownies in an 8×8 pan.
- For a party, cut brownies into bite sized squares
- Store leftovers in an airtight container either refrigerated or at room temperature.
