So, I have been blogging here for just a few weeks and I am already bringing you anther brownie recipe. And, yep, you guessed it, they’re fudgy! Can you tell I have a soft spot for these things? Even as a kid I would request brownies instead of birthday cake. They are my favorite 🙂
These are so easy to make it’s almost embarrassing. And *bonus* they are out of this world delicious!
How could they not be? They are chock full of peanut butter cups. I know chocolate and peanut butter is not a new idea, but I thought I’d better post this in case you haven’t tried this variation. Your welcome.
