    I remember making these awesome brownies all the time when I was a kid. I was looking for some rich, , chocolatey homemade goodness with which to impress my boyfriend's family this Christmas and remembered these brownies. Hey, internet... thanks for the childhood memories!
    Everyone begs for this recipe when I make these brownies
    Slightly bitter, very little peanut butter flavor.
