Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chunk Brownies

Some days are chocolate days.
I personally find that I function at a much higher level with enough coffee and chocolate
to fuel a small army.
We have two options each day, happy mommy or not as happy as she could be mommy.
That’s right, you know the one I always choose.

Since chocolate and peanut butter go together to beautifully, and taste so very good,
today’s brownie is the perfect balance of both.
If for some reason the baking dish has been washed and put away before the kids are
home from school, I won’t tell anyone.
To save time keep a few disposable pans on hand.
Just for those days, not every time you make brownies.
We have to share sometimes.
Maybe next time.
