These brownies are a spin on that famous chocolate and peanut butter cup. Now, my philosophy is if you’re going to indulge, use only the best ingredients. That’s why I always reach for all-natural peanut butter. It makes all the difference. All-natural peanut butter should have one ingredient: peanuts! There are several national brands that offer “real” peanut butter. Many supermarkets also grind their own natural peanut butter and stock it near the deli counter. Because the peanut oil rises to the top, be sure to mix your peanut butter thoroughly before adding it to the recipe.
