Chocolate brownies with peanut butter

If you have purchased a jar of peanut butter and you made the stuffed chocolates that I posted a few days ago, then you have left with some more peanut butter. If you are not going to eat it on top of bread slices, then I have for you a very nice recipe to use it.

Brownies with peanut butter. Another delicacy that its characteristic is the combination of savory/sweet that I love. The soft brownies compliment peanut butter and the chocolate chips give an extra chocolaty tone. You will be satisfied with the result and I'm sure you will buy another jar of peanut butter to bake them once more. Just pay a bit of attention while baking brownies. Do not over bake them. It should be juicy and fluffy.

So, check them now and then and according to your oven adjust the baking time.

Enjoy !!
