We have lots of great cooks in our clan, so adding to our collection of family recipes is a tradition. I came up with these moist nut-covered brownies while doing my Christmas baking. Now everyone requests them.
"I'm a true chocolate lover," admits Karen Wisner of Grafton, North Dakota. "To dress up brownies from a boxed mix, I added chips, nuts and mini peanut butter cups before baking, then drizzled them with both a chocolate and a peanut butter icing. They instantly became a family favorite."
I don't know where I got this recipe, but I've had it for over 30 years - it's written on an old yellow piece of paper. Adding chocolate chips was my idea. When my children were in school, I found out they were selling these brownies to their friends!
