I have been holding out on you…I know, it’s terrible. I’ve been making these brownies for months now but I am just getting around to sharing the recipe with you. Shame on me! These are just too good not to share. I hope you’ll forgive the delay. I was growing, and then birthing, a baby after all. Plus, once you taste this ridiculously decadent brownie in all of its chocolate and peanut butter glory I have a hunch that any hard feelings will be assuaged. They are just that good:-)
You must try these this summer. The sooner the better! They would be the perfect thing to take along to a picnic or potluck– yum!

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and toothpick comes out not quite clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
Peanut Butter Filling: Stir together peanut butter and honey. Spread over cooled brownies.

Toss restraint aside. Enjoy!
