Peanut butter and chocolate are awesome together. Think reese’s peanut butter cups.
I’m visiting my brother and sister-in-law, so in addition to making a full dinner (fried chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits…) we needed something delicious for dessert. We searched around for some peanut butter and chocolate desserts and almost settled on a couple. Before making our final choice, I thought I would check smittenkitchen. That’s where we found this recipe for peanut butter brownies (http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/10/peanut-butter-brownies/).
They are … awesome (am I repeating myself?). Gooey like a brownie with the delicious peanut butter / chocolate combination. I’ll show you the steps I took to make the brownies, but here is the recipe. We used chunky peanut butter rather than smooth, and I liked the extra crunch.
