Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies

peanut butter cookie brownies

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about combining the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate.  It’s a classic pair that needs to marry in the form of a  fudgey brownie.  Why?  Because I love peanut butter cookies and I love brownies and I want to enjoy them at the same time.   This is a very easy and satisfying recipe that will be sure to please both adults and kids.  It would also be great served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

We are going to make the peanut butter cookie dough from scratch, so we are going to get some help for a box brownie mix.
