Fudgy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

Let these delicious, chewy, peanut butter chocolate chip brownies make up for my recent neglect.
The past two weeks have brought about many changes. I've started a new job (hey guys!) and the boy and I have been adjusting to a new schedule. He's doing well, but I'm struggling to find time to take pictures of what I've been baking, since we leave and return when it's dark. I'm sure some of you wonderful bloggers and non-bloggers alike have suggestions for lighting I could look into-- please give me your advice! Baking just isn't as fun when I can't share every little detail with all of you.

Issues aside, I made these brownies one afternoon when I needed to provide a quick distraction for the boy. They were easy for both of us to put together (although, I've been told, he prefers to make cookies), and baked wonderfully. A perfect, simple, Sunday afternoon treat.
