I stumbled across a cookbook called The Great American Bake Sale by Allison Boteler. It has a ton of treasures inside. I bought this book the year my youngest daughter, Kelsi was born. And I have used it many times over the last 30 years.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Brownie mix

So, it was fitting that when Kelsi came home to attend my Dad's Celebration of Life Ceremony, I should make something from it. I settled on this recipe Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Brownies.

Look at those Chocolate Chunks

I was genuinely surprised how good these tasted. I'm usually not one to like peanut butter in my cakes and brownies. I do however, love Peanut Butter Cookies. This recipe was easy to make and pleasing to the taste buds. If you are looking to try a new recipe, I suggest this one!
