Two of my favorite things are brownies and chocolate. Brooks absolutely loves peanut butter. So this was the perfect combination. So this is for Brooks...who is lying on the couch, on pain medication, because he just had his ACL and meniscus repaired (don't worry that this is his 3rd knee surgery in 3 years)...
This is the perfect dessert for a large crowd! It makes a ton...but even if you don't eat it all, you will be happy you have leftovers!
