Hubby and I decided to have a treat last night while watching movies. He is a Reese's fan, and you would think that he would have had his fill with all of the peanut butter eggs he recently ate for Easter. Nope; LOL. I am not an experienced baker and had trouble getting the layers to spread evenly. In fact, at one point, Hubby found me swearing at the pan. He thinks that my frustrations were worth it, though. The peanut butter layer makes the brownies lighter, and more cake-like. While I like a dense, chewy, and chocolatey brownie, he was very happy with the results. I did use my mixer to blend the peanut butter layer, as I had trouble getting the butter to incorporate by hand. My tip for spreading the batter layers is to drop it by spoonfuls across the top and then blur together. Big blobs just make it difficult to spread wet ingredients on top of wet ingredients.
