Sometimes, you just have to have chocolate. I had one of those days last week. I made a dish with some spice in it for dinner, and I wasn't in the mood to exert a lot of effort in order to get chocolate. I just wanted to eat it. And soon. Fortunately, I had one box of brownie mix tucked away in the cupboard and I did not have to wait long for gratification. Does this even count as a recipe? I doubt it, but it was just what I was craving.
Cheater Peanut Butter Brownies
Brownie mix, prepared as directed
Prepare brownie mix and spread into pan. Glop peanut butter all over the brownie mix. Take a knife to swirl throughout. You'll end up with lovely pockets of thick peanut butter throughout. Bake as directed on the package and devour half the pan.
If you are slightly more patient, you could warm the peanut butter slightly, spoon or pipe it into neat rows, and make a more uniform/beautiful marble pattern. I've heard you "eat with your eyes first," but my tummy wanted chocolate immediately.
PB & J Brownies: Same as above, but glob and swirl your jam/jelly of choice as well.
What's your favorite go-to in a chocolate crisis?
