The BEST blend for a bar cookie!! Chocolate and peanut butter reminds everyone of Reese Cup Candy. This layered brownie recipe was a hit at our annual family reunion - they emptied the plate!

I made this recipe for the " Winter Comfort Cafe 2010 " event. There were a few problems with the peanut butter layer part of this recipe.I used a generic peanut butter,so that could have been part of the problem. Then to get it to be able to spread I needed to add about 3 to 4 Tablespoons of milk. After reading Karamia's review I decided to add almost two teaspoons of sugar to the peanut butter mixture. But other than that, I stuck to the recipe. Both my SO and I thought " How can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter ? " And we were right, there was a very good taste to these brownies. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
