Better Together

Oreos and milk. Pizza and Beer. Troy and Abed.  On their own these are all great, but when paired with each other the combinations are nothing short of amazing. One of my favorite flavor combos of all time is chocolate and peanut butter.  After seeing a recipe for Better-Than-Crack-Brownies (thank you How Sweet It Is), I knew that it was one thing I absolutely had to make.

Here are some pictures of the batch I made.

Love, love, love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
I substituted Heath Bar bits for the peanuts.
An almost sinful layer of chocolate, peanut butter and rice cereal.
Recommended with a scoop (or two) of ice cream or tall glass of ice cold milk.

Now, I have no idea what crack tastes like (nor do I ever really want to find out) but these brownies are soooo good that they should be illegal. I’m totally serious. These brownies could probably get you 5-10 minimum. They are also über easy to make. Oh and have I mentioned that they are really delicious? Do yourself a favor and make them. Your taste buds will thank you.
