One of my go-to desserts has always been Betty Crocker’s peanut butter cookie brownies. They are so tasty and my cravings almost always are a combination of peanut butter and chocolate so what better dessert for that. I wanted to give these a try on my own and see how they turned out. Now, I’m not trying to toot my own horn but Betty Crocker ain’t got nothin on me! Jk she’s amazing and I wish I could be here but truly these peanut butter cookie brownies were fire. I can honestly say I won’t be buying the box anymore and you won’t either after you try these.
