Peanut Butter Brownie Bars

Lets talk about the birds and the bees. Sometimes, when a guy and a gal fall in love, they make a baby. And when the gal in that scenario is Evan's sister (and the guy is her guy, obviously), they make our first nephew, an adorable baby boy. Sometimes the guy and gal live right, smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan (or, well, somewhere in Manhattan), giving us the perfect excuse to go to the Big Apple THIS WEEKEND (for the first time ever)! 

Similarly, sometimes when a fudgey chocolate brownie and a peanut butter blondie fall in love, they make peanut butter brownie bars. 

You can make peanut butter brownie bars too, without all the birds and bees business. But be warned…there's a lot of gooey, peanut buttery, chocolatey awesomeness going on here…who knows what that could lead to. 

Step 1: Preheat ove to 350, grease a 9x13 baking pan
Step 2: Whip up a bowl of the Brown Eyed Baker's peanut butter blondie batter (swap the peanut butter chips for chocolate chips, leave out the peanuts). Spread evenly in baking dish.
Step 3: Whip up a bowl of basic brownie mix, like this one. Add some chocolate chips to this too, for good measure. Spread evenly over peanut butter mixture.
Step 4: Bake for 35-45 minutes*, cool before cutting.
Step 5: Bite, swoon, love, repeat. 

*I didn't extensively test this, just pretty much made one peanut butter blondie recipe and topped it with one brownie recipe, and waited 9 months. I mean…40-ish minutes. 35 minutes wasn't solid enough, and 50 minutes was a little too dry. When you test them, they'll be gooey, and that's ok, as long as they seem set all the way through.
