Peanut Butter Brownies

I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate. I’m sure someone out there doesn’t, but like I said, I haven’t met them.

Peanut butter and chocolate are meant to be enjoyed together, and throw in a brownie and you’ve got a match made in heaven!!

I used a large circle shape cookie cutter to cut these peanut butter brownies. You can cut them into squares straight from the pan, if you prefer. Or, grab a heart shaped cookie cutter if you’re making these for your sweetheart!
