Peanut Butter Brownies with Chocolate Frosting

This recipe originated with my grandmother. It is certainly a fan favorite and very rich.

Peanut Butter Brownies
1 1/2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder (3t will make a 9x13 plus an 8x8)
1/2 t. salt
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
4 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. hot water

Mix all ingredients together. Bake in ungreased 9x13 (it will be very shallow) at 350* for 40 minutes. Cool and frost. Cover and refrigerate (or even freeze).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 lb. confectioner's sugar
< 1/2 c. milk

Cream all ingredients except milk. Add milk and continue whipping until desired consistency. You may not use all the milk. Refrigerate any leftovers.
