Maggie Monday: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

Recently Maggie was laid up after having some surgery and in the middle of it I received a bunch of posts from her. Most of us would just lounge on the couch. Maggie? She keep going and going. Here she is…

Peanut Butter. Chocolate. I don’t really need to say much more about this post. Easy-peasy as traditional brownies but a nice change. I also like that you can taste the salt. Chocolate+salt= yum.

I like to vary “brownie” recipes at our house. “Brownie” (sorta like “Coke”  for soft drink or “Kleenex” for tissue) has come to mean pretty much any dessert I bake in a pan and cut into squares that can be eaten without a fork. Look for my daughter’s favorite “Orange Brownies” soon.

If you like peanut butter and chocolate, make these brownies.
