Baking is truly Chemistry in action. While there is an art to baking-creating something new and delicious with flavors-it truly is a science. I may have forgotten that today. In my quest to make Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies, I combined 2 recipes which were very different, into one. The results are still unknown, as there is still 10 minutes of baking time left. However, looking through the glass door, has me concerned. Here is the recipe. I will update later with the results.
1/2 cup Butter
2 oz bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used extra crunchy)
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Melt butter and chocolate. Add sugars, peanut butter, vanilla and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Add flour, soda and salt. Mix to combine. Pour into oiled 8" square pan. Top with miniature Reese's peanut butter cups (found with the chocolate chips). Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
