Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

 I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. (No, mom, not while I'm working.)
I am always looking for new dessert ideas because, well it's no secret, I LOVE to bake.
Sadly, I haven't come up with anything on my own. 

Well, one time I did. I bought one of those delicious graham cracker pie crusts, a family size vanilla pudding, some whipped cream & bananas. I was in a hurry so I just whipped it up the pudding, poured it in the shell and topped with sliced bananas and whipped cream. Simple, but oh so yummy.

I know, it's nothing amazing but it's not too bad for a 17 year old. I made it without having to search the internet too. I thought I'd eventually get around to blogging about it until the other day when I saw it on a food website. I was so sad! I guess I waited too long to share it with the world and someone else figured it out.

I recently came up with two ideas that I haven't seen anywhere else. They aren't crazy or anything, but they are different. My plan is to test them out soon and share them before anyone else does, haha. 
It's always been my dream to come up with a great cookie recipe or a to-die-for dessert. One day friends, one day.

Until then, here is a really yummy dessert I found at this cute little blog
I changed it up a little & it was a huge hit at an event we had. Nathan of course loved it. Anything peanut butter and he's in heaven.

What's in em:
-Ghiradhelli brownie mix with chocolate chips
-Peanut butter
I would start with 1/2 a cup. That was way more than enough for me.
Reeces chips or extra chocolate chips (optional.) Um, I didn't do this but wouldn't those Recees ones be DELICIOUS to add on top?
How it's done:
-Mix your brownies according to the instructions
-Divide into pan. I used my new brownie pan and a muffin pan. I also have a mini muffin pan and  think these would be great tiny.
-Bake until they're a little runny still (or however you like them) approx 10-12 min. (longer for large muffin pan) Stick a toothpick in center to test.
Heat Peanut butter in microwave for 45 seconds
-take a teaspoon and make little holes in your cute little brownies. Be careful NOT to poke a hole all the way through.
-Pour peanut butter in the little hole you created.
-Let cool completely or they will fall apart.
Grab some milk & ENJOY!
