Let these delicious, chewy, peanut butter chocolate chip brownies make up for my recent neglect.
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.
