If you are craving peanut butter and chocolate (and who doesn't?), then look no further. These chocolate brownies have a layer of peanut butter sandwiched between a fudgy-tasking chocolate glaze. I like Hershey's cocoa powder and Jif peanut butter, but use your favorite brands. Heads up...these are sinful!
