So I was in search of something sweet and comforting on Sunday. I know! Don’t judge me…lol It was a rainy and gloomy day and I was in the house in my PJ’s for most, if not all of the day; and I wanted something sweet.  I walked into my pantry and looked around for something I could make, that would satisfy my sweet tooth.  I stumbled upon a package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips.  Looked on the back of the package and read the ingredients and directions for double peanut butter paisley brownies. I thought to myself sounds good, so I gave them a try (along with two scoops of HäagenDazs vanilla ice cream.  (Remember we’re not judging here..lol)

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed light brown sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg. peanut butter chips

The brownies are very rich and definitely hit that sweet and comforting spot.  But for my figures sake I probably won’t be making these again anytime soon, well at least not this month. ;)

Has anyone else ever made or had these before?  This was my first time trying them.
