Last night, I spent some time with a couple of my girl friends and to celebrate the birthday of one of them, we enjoyed these absolutely ridiculous brownies. I mean they are so good, so good! The recipe was found on pinterest, who doesn't love that site?? I promise you will not be sorry that you made these if you do make them. All the chocolate and peanut butter, where could you go wrong? These brownies must be served with a tall glass of milk or some vanilla ice cream, so make sure you have some on hand!
