OMG, these are to die for!!! Well worth the effort. Made these for my book group and the family ate most of them before the I got to serve them to the ladies. I have made them a few more times and they are now on my special list!

I made this recipe and all my family members loved it! Its a little bit of work, but well worth it. I'm not a peanut butter fan, this recipe changed my mind. P.S. Im not much of a baker, but I do like making and eating these brownies.
