Chocolate Peanut Butter Oh My Heck Brownies

chocolate peanut butter oh my heck brownies

When I found these brownies on Pinterest they were called Better Than Crack Brownies.  Since I, personally, have not tried crack, I can’t say if they’re better than crack.  Thank goodness, right?  I like my teeth and my sanity.  So I really didn’t want to call them that.  Plus, I didn’t want to tell my kids and their friends “hey kids, try these better than crack brownies.”  I could just hear it.  “Mom, what’s crack?”  That’s a discussion I’ll have with them when they get a little older.

Anyways… so I changed the name.  Chocolate Peanut Butter just doesn’t cut it, though.  These are sooooooo much better than that.  They are AMAZING!  But, and I can’t even believe I’m saying this, they are so darn sweet.  But that’s just me.  When I took them to a pot luck at the Martial Arts Academy one of the other parents are 3 of them.  He said they were pure heaven.

Look at that fudgy layer on top.  Holy heck, right?!?!  Thus, the name – Chocolate Peanut Butter Oh My Heck Brownies.

They were wonderful.  The Butterfingers and Cocoa Crispy cereal gave the fudgy, peanut butter layer some crunch to it and the brownies, well, they’re brownies, which are my favorite.  You will love them!  I promise!
