The title of this blog should really be "Upgrade your Box Brownie Mix". This started with a 99 cent Box-O-Brownies and ends with "Pass me another one please and may I have this recipe" brownie! I am a peanut butter lover. I got that love from my dad. I grew up in a house in which everything, and I mean everything, was eaten with peanut butter on it. We went through a jar a week. It was no little jar of Jiff either. This was a HUGE glass jar of SULTANA peanut butter. We still talk about the good old days when they made SULTANA peanut butter. We don't know where it went - but no peanut butter will ever taste as good to us. Ahh - the taste of childhood! I for one, have no problem drowning my sorrows in peanut butter with this delicious recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.
