Very Easy Peanut Butter Brownies

My marathon baking weekend has come to an end and I have a lot to share with you over the next few days. Since it is Monday, I thought I would start with a very easy recipe that looks like Halloween to me.
When I was in high school I came up with this easy recipe. The internet was not around, well not many had it, cooking shows were not popular, and therefore, I thought I was the originator of this recipe. I made it all the time because certain friends, mil10, requested it a lot. Friends still ask for it years later.
To me, it has a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup like flavor to it. The ingredients are almost always in your pantry which is a great reason to give it a try today! Some people love this brownie so much that they have even had it for breakfast.

Very Easy Peanut Butter Brownies
1 box of your favorite 13x9 brownie mix (plus ingredients to make it)
1/3 cup peanut butter

Mix brownie mix according to package instructions and pour into a 13x 9 greased pan. Place peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and heat in microwave until melted. Pour peanut butter over brownie mixture in 4 long ribbons down the length of the pan. Run a knife along the length of the pan; as if you were cutting the brownies to make a marbled effect. Bake as directed.

Pirate and Pumpkin Surprise Balls-I made these for my niece and nephew for our Family Pumpkinfest. They are considered to be "personal pinatas with a twist." The kids unraveled their surprise balls to find fun gifts hidden in hundreds of feet of crepe paper.

The Peanut Butter Brownies were great! They are still an absolute favorite of mine even after all of these years. You really should make those for me more often. Thanks for thinking of me - you know I don't like pumpkin!
