Birthday Brownies with Peanut Butter Mousse
I know you guys have been patiently awaiting the arrival of this recipe and it’s FINALLY HERE!! Sorry to shout at you on the Interwebs but it really is just too exciting to keep quiet lol! This recipe came about this year when my husband requested something involving chocolate and peanut butter for his birthday. Not everyone is able to tolerate peanut butter, and it’s not technically paleo, but we actually do really well with it. Remember, this is a treat and we don’t consume this everyday ;) It’s all about balance and treating yourself to a healthier alternative to make special occasions…well…special! If you don’t or can’t do peanut butter, just sub in sunflower butter or cashew butter, easy peasy!
Our birthdays are only 5 days apart so we share a lot of birthday fun in this household! I loved how easy (and incredibly delicious) it was to make these using the box mix with a little hocus pocus & fairy dust added in, so I made it for MY birthday too, hence the Birthday Brownie’s name! I created this recipe because we have already been loving on the Simple Mills Brownies for quite some time. The directions on how to make them are on the back of the box and we usually add in some Enjoy Life Chocolate chips or chunks for good measure!
I think some people don’t realize the directions to make the Simple Mills Brownies are on the back of their Chocolate Cake & Muffin Mix because I get messages about it quite frequently whenever I make a batch & share on Instagram. If you haven’t made them yet, you must do it and then upgrade them like this next. Or just make this first and have your mind blow lol! The key to making the mousse is to first melt everything down and then make sure to mix really well. Then just pour that on top of the baked brownies, freeze for a few hours until it’s solid, add the chocolate topping, let defrost a bit & serve!
I know you just want me to stop blabbing and get to the goods, so here they are! The recipe for heaven on earth is below! If you make these delicious choc PB morsels, don’t forget to snap a photo & share it with me on Instagram! Just tag me in the photo and add the hashtag #paleopaparazzi Cheers to whatever you make these yummy brownies to celebrate with! Would be perfect for Valentine’s day, wink wink!
