These brownies are the ultimate brownie! My 3 favorite things all combined into one gooey, fudgey brownie.
I mean seriously..how can you go wrong with this flavor combo..
Peanut Butter + Cheesecake + Brownies = THE BEST!
This recipe came together over many baking trial and error attempts. Which is honestly half the fun and why i'm so excited to share this recipe with you all! Just the right amount of love and sugar went into making these beauties. I promise that the time and effort you put into these will be so worth it once you take your first bite.
The perfect edges with the best fudgy brownie center. I've always been a middle of the pan kind of girl. That gooey center is my absolute fave! That being said, the edges are also all kinds of fantastic. Best of both worlds!
Let's get baking!
