Peanut Butter Brownie Bars

Do you have a treat that that has been your favorite since childhood?  I do!  I remember when I was little, back in the days when school lunch was made from scratch in the school’s kitchen. This is where my favorite treat was born…the Peanut Butter Finger Bar.

I’m a peanut butter and chocolate lover and the peanut butter bar from elementary school was so delicious with it’s oatmeal-cookie-like base.

This recipe isn’t far from that, except I decided to satisfy two cravings at once.  The craving for delicious brownies and peanut butter.  The results are amazing!
