This is a brownie everyone will want to get their hands on, especially the peanut butter lovers out there :D.Delicious combination of rich dark chocolate and smooth peanut butter, what's not to like about that. It has a great fudge like texture and a uniquely,beautiful appearance that will intrigue everyone. The recipe is so simple and actually gives you an added bonus of three different brownie versions for you to try out.
I think I might try out the Rocky Road Version next time I have marshmallows to use up and see where that takes me.However I warn anyone that makes any of these versions they are deliciously sweet and complication from eating them may be sugar rush and very full tummy lol :P. Have fun eating and baking those brownies!
