Rich Peanut Butter Brownies


"These delicious brownies came to be with a little trial and error, and these are great! Frost lightly with your favorite chocolate frosting and watch them go! The outside edges are cakey, and the inside brownies are chewy, so there is something for everyone."

I really hate giving recipes bad reviews but ...It has more of a cookie texture and is a bit dry. When making the batter it reminded me of cookie batter and I had to pat it into the pan evenly... it did not pour and spread. For the chocolate flavor you do need to add a bit more cocoa powder as suggested also.This was not a hit for my family.


I should have known that there was too much flour when it was more like a cookie dough --- it definitely didn't 'pour' into the pan. And I only cooked it for 22 minutes. Dry, dry, dry!


VERY good with Schwann's rocky road icecream!!!! ;-)
