Chocolate Chip Banana Brownies

It’s super cold outside today! The only thing that’s going to warm me up, is a pan of chocolate chip brownies. What could make a pan of already delicious brownies even better? Adding mashed bananas to the brownie batter, that’s what! Topping the brownies with a chocolate, peanut butter glaze, well that’s just plain genius. Chocolate chip banana brownies with a chocolate peanut butter glaze are super, duper delicious!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze

This chocolate peanut butter glaze is amazing. It’s delicious on everything from brownies to mounds bars. Peanut butter and chocolate chips are melted together, then spread over the brownies. Valentine sprinkles are scattered over the glaze but this step is optional. The sprinkles are optional but who doesn’t like sprinkles? They certainly make the brownies look more festive with the Valentine sprinkles on top, don’t you think so?
