    I saw brownies like these in the dessert case in the cafe at The Hershey Story Museum and knew I had to try them. I was so glad to find this recipe on my favorite recipe site! I had some spreadable cream cheese to the peanut butter layer because I was in a hurry and wanted to be able to spread it quickly. That made them extra good, but they will have to be stored in the fridge.

    A coworker made these and brought them into work. They are delicious!

    These are very easy to make and very yummy! They are always a hit when we bring them to Ohio State tailgate parties! Make sure you let each layer cool before moving on to the next so that the topping doesn't separate from the brownie base.

    YUMMY!! My version is slightly different, but not enough to post another recipe! The topping has smaller ingredient amounts, which may decrease calories somewhat (but does it really matter when you're eating something like this??) Note: at room temperature- 70 degrees, the toppings are a wonderful soft and creamy consistency, but sticky to the touch.<br/>PEANUT BUTTER LAYER: 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 tsp. vanilla... warm slightly in microwave to help it to spread easier.<br/>CHOCOLATE TOPPING: 4 oz. semi-sweet choc. chips, 4 Tbsp. butter.... drizzle generously.

    These really cure a sweet tooth! I made them to take to my parent's house for Father's Day and as stuffed as we all were, we ate them. Very, very good!! I followed the directions exactly and the came out perfect. Thanks so much for posting.
