Fancy Fudge Brownies

"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."
