Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Chip Bar Cookies

This recipe is a step below the better than sex brownies.  If you’re low on Reeses cups and rice Krispy cereal then I would suggest making this. There are a few more modifications but these are still better than out of the box brownie mix and well it’s made from scratch anyways so it has to be better right? If you want to get really lazy and just curl up with a blanket while watching Netflix this is a great break between all the ice cream you’re eating on your day off. Toss some Nutella on top of these brownies and you’ll be on the same level as better than sex brownies. If you’re really adventurous you’ll make them both at the same time and food coma yourself to sleep.
