Peanut Butter Cup Crack Brownies

So I made more brownies.I know, I can’t seem to stop…
I don’t have any legitimate explanations on the redundancy of my recipe repertoire. I have never claimed to be well-rounded.
Anyhow… since I can’t begin to describe how freaking amazing these brownies are I will just tell you how to make them.

Peanut Butter Cup Crack Brownies
So I started with a box of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies… they are some of my favorite boxed brownies.While they were baking I chopped up some peanut butter cups…

In all honesty I used peanut butter cup eggs that I have leftover from Easter. Shhh, don’t tell my kids.
Then I chopped up some peanuts…Mix those together.When your brownie has 5 minutes left to bake pull it out of the oven and sprinkle your pb cups and peanuts all over the top…
The chocolate will get melty.
When they’re done pull them out and using an off-set spatula, spread them all over…
