DIRECTIONS

  • Brownie Layer.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Microwave unsweetened chocolate with 3/4 butter on high for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Stir till chocolate is completely melted.
  • Stir granulated sugar into melted chocolate.
  • Mix in eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; blend well.
  • Stir in flour and walnuts.
  • Spread into 13x9-inch greased pan.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes.
  • DO NOT OVER BAKE.
  • Cool.
  • Peanut butter layer:
  • Mix peanut butter, 3 tablespoons butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in another bowl.
  • Blend till smooth, adding up to 1/4 cup of milk to make it a nice spreading consistency.( You may need more milk to make it spreadable, this part can be a little difficult, if the peanut butter does not spread easily, make sure you dip your spatula in water. Sometimes I even have to sprinkle alittle water on top of the peanut butter to smooth).
  • Spread over the cooled brownies.
  • Top Layer:
  • Microwave semisweet chocolate for 1 1/2 minutes with the 1/4 cup butter.
  • Stir till smooth.
  • Spread over peanut butter layer.
  • Cool until set.
