Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Fudgy, easy, loaded with peanut butter and topped with TWO glazes!

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies. OMG. Anyone else feeling like we need a little chocolate today??? I mean, it’s ok if you don’t feel that way. Maybe you’re springing through your week and are super happy to spend your day eating salad and downing green juice. That’s awesome. Good for you. I’ll take care of these.

Isn’t chocolate and peanut butter the best combo ever?! I believe it might be. And brownies are one of my very favourite desserts… so these just speak to me on so many levels. Fudgy chocolatey brownies with bites of peanut butter chips and TWO glazes (just to take them completely over the top because I like to do that). So delicious!
