      Wow, I loved these. However, since I'm the kind of person who doesn't measure out ingredients before-hand, I had to make some adjustments. Had to leave out the peanuts in the actual brownie, and when I went to make the frosting, I found that someone had put an empty jar into the cupboard. So my frosting had 1/4 peanut butter and 3/4 cup of Nutella (which was the closest thing I could find). It was still really good, but because Nutella has 10000x more sugar, it was REALLY sweet. Altogether pretty awesome. The brownie part reminded me of those store-bought 2-bite brownies. :)
