White Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter Brownies

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2014

Honestly, White Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter Brownies are one of the best brownies I’ve baked–ever! These luscious brownies have a peanut butter base filled with Heath English Toffee Bits. Then white chocolate chips are swirled into the batter. They bake up so delightfully with a rich, gooey, chewy texture. One of the nice things about this recipe is that it’s really quick and easy to make. It took me about 10 minutes to get it oven ready. Super simple. Super easy. Super delicious. 🙂

I’m on a roll now baking cookies for our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. I started early this year because we have a lot of travel we’ll be doing between now and the end of the year and I want to make sure they’re all baked on time and ready to ship out or deliver in a timely manner and without interrupting our travel schedule. After baking these jewels I went ahead and froze them so they will still be fresh in December when I’m ready to make up my Christmas cookie baskets.

This recipe actually started out because I wanted to use up several jars of creamy peanut butter so I didn’t have my pantry cluttered with so many jars! While I used creamy peanut butter, crunchy peanut butter will work just as well, even though you already get a crunchy texture from the Heath English Toffee Bits. I’m doing my best this year not to overbuy on Christmas baking supplies so I don’t have a lot left over after I’m done, so I’m going through my cupboards and making every effort to use what’s on hand first before buying more.

My inspiration for this recipe was my Peanut Butter Swirl Bars. Those bars are so tasty I thought I would play around with the toppings and sure enough, White Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter Brownies came out a winner. One of the things I have to be concerned about when heat-sealing all of our Christmas cookies and brownies is that the recipe not be super gooey. The bags won’t seal well, then.

So I have to come up with options that are not super gooey. I have made gooey recipes like our Apricot Almond Bars which are so incredibly delicious (and everyone loves them), but they are hard to seal in the polyurethane bags we use. So my husband is always after me to make goodies that are not QUITE as gooey on the outside of the bar (it doesn’t matter too much if they’re gooey on the inside). These brownies are easy to work with after they’re cut which made bagging them down and sealing them very effortless and easy.

So, if you’re looking for a delightful brownie to make for Christmas and holiday baking or just because you love chocolate, uh…, or toffee, uh…., or peanut butter, then this is the brownie for you! You and your family will be hard-pressed not to overindulge in these tasty treats, and any company you share them with will want seconds, thirds and fourths, immediately!

As an update, these were one of our top three Christmas cookies this year, along with Pumpkin Cranberry Cookies and Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies.
