I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate are one of my favorite mixtures.  I normally will add Heath Toffee Bits to it, but you can add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, mint chips or omit them all together.
