I love the saltiness that the peanut butter adds to the whole taste experience. I did try a version with a sweetened peanut butter swirl, but I found that I liked just plain peanut butter better. It’s a great balance to the sweetness of the Reese’s peanut butter cups.  

I was in heaven with every dedadent bite of these brownies. Having a cold glass of milk nearby is a must, these babies are pretty rich! One of the most sinfully delicious brownie recipes I’ve ever tried.
