A friend of mine gave me the recipe for these layered brownies, but I added my own touch--chunky peanut butter. Every time I take it to a group gathering, I get requests for the recipe. It's a real crowd-pleaser! -Judy Sims Weatherford, Texas

"These are the absolute best brownies I've ever tasted! People constantly request them when I'm asked to make a dessert. Oftentimes I make 1.5 times the frosting because it's so delicious."

"No matter where I take these I always come home with an empty pan! I find it easier to spread the peanut butter on the brownie layer when they're cool because the pan's so full."
