Peanut Butter….peanut butter and chocolate, what’s not to love! These brownies are totally awesome, you have got to try these when you get a chance. These brownies remind me of blonde brownies, only better! Did I tell you that I love peanut butter? These brownies scream out “PEANUT BUTTER! This brownie is soft and chewy, but have that little unexpected taste of additional peanut butter from the peanut butter chips inside. If I let myself continue, I could have eaten most of the brownies I baked, and I’m not kidding you!
This brownie is a really good brownie to take to any gathering, it’s simple and they are not too hard to make. Most of the ingredients are what some of us usually have around. I used regular Hershey’s syrup for this recipe, I didn’t have the dark syrup on hand. I’m sure his recipe is just as delicious with the light syrup as the dark syrup. Anyway, this is a recipe I’ve added to my recipe collection for a keeper recipe. You got to try these, I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
