Peanut Butter Cracker Stuffed Brownies

Sunday, January 17, 2021
These Peanut Butter Cracker Stuffed Brownies are a buttery cracker slathered with peanut butter surrounded by a homemade fabulous scratch brownie.

If you're a peanut butter fan you will love these flavor combinations, the stuffing reminds me of a girl scout tagalong cookie stuffed inside an amazing homemade fudgy chocolate brownie.

With just a few pantry ingredients you can make the easiest chocolate brownie recipe in no time or just use your favorite store-bought mix.

The cracker will taste more like a crunchy cookie when baked in the batter and with peanut butter, on top, they're simply decadently delicious.

If you're a brownie fan you can also try my Layered Peanut Butter Brownies and my fabulous 2 Ingredient Nutella Brownies.

Homemade Brownies

Seriously these will be a hit every time you make them after one bite, everyone will love these, you may even want to make a double batch.

This recipe for homemade brownies are super easy to make and they really take no time to whip up a batch from scratch.

However, for all my busy readers, you can always keep a few boxes of chocolate brownie mix on hand when in a hurry to make a semi-homemade version that still works perfectly.

Ingredients You Need To Make

  • flour
  • peanut butter
  • egg
  • vanilla
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • butter
  • baking powder
  • Optional Frosting: powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, butter, vanilla and honey


  1. use a parchment-lined brownie sized pan
  2. use butter, not margarine
  3. use Nutella, cookie butter, or any spread you prefer in place of the peanut butter for food allergies
  4. do not over bake the brownies
  5. these brownies are delightful with or without being stuffed, frosted, or unfrosted

Semi-Homemade Version

If you prefer the semi-homemade version, make sure you buy a famous brand brownie mix and it should only be enough for an 8 x 8-inch pan or divide it into two pans if it's a large package.

These really are a gourmet brownie and the crunchy inside taste more like a cookie, not a cracker so everyone will be fooled on this filling but these brownies are so addicting.

Hope everyone tries this recipe and let us know how you like them in the comments section.
