Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Happiness if when your schoolmate and best friend comes home from out of town after years. After two years of waiting and hoping, my compadre has come back to Bangalore to spend a day with me. Naturally, this calls for something special.

Chocolate always makes me happy. And I MEAN always. But then, it makes EVERYONE happy, doesn’t it? Add a double whammy of dark and milk chocolate and I’m in cloud 9 already! To that, add just the perfect amount of peanut butter and I’m floating among angels!

The brownies are made with the peanut butter swirled over it in pwetty pwetty patterns and with the most decadent brownie crust.
