Hey you,

Today’s recipe: The Best Brownie Ever (Topped With Peanut Butter Fudge!) “Why is it the best brownie ever?” You might ask. Because it is topped with a layer of real peanut butter fudge that is about twice as high as the brownie itself! I know it’s craziness, but that’s how I roll. Basically, this is a combination of two of my favorite recipe fudgy brownies and peanut butter fudge! Okay, let’s make this.

We shall start with the brownie. First, butter a 9×13-inch baking pan.

In a medium saucepan place butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips.

Melt together. Be sure to stir this a lot so that the chocolate chips don’t burn.

While the brownie bakes you can work on the fudge. In a large dutch oven place sugar, brown sugar, butter, and evaporated milk.

If you like peanut butter fudge, and you like brownies then you will love The Best Brownie Ever (Topped With Peanut Butter Fudge!)! By the way, when I made this I took some to work, my dad took some to work, and we took some to our library ladies too. Because it is just too addicting to have the whole pan sitting in the house looking at you and saying “hi there, I taste delicious and you know you want to eat me.” Seriously folks make this when you are going to have company over or sometime when you can share it, don’t go it alone.
