Vanilla Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Vanilla brownies? Whaaatt?

I was feelin' creative when I made these and thought, "Why not?"

So yes, brownies made with vanilla pudding mix = vanilla brownies.

Add some peanut butter frosting on top and you've got yourself a vanilla/chocolate/peanut butter masterpiece. They're ooey and gooey and awesome.  You really just can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.  One of my friends who doesn't like brownies told me he loved it.

I thought I'd give you guys this recipe before I start going crazy with pumpkin/fall/Halloween recipes.  So enjoy it because they're coming soon.
