Peanut Butter Brownie Squares

The proof that this was a yummy dessert is that it disappeared quickly.  Do people like peanut butter as much as chocolate?

Peanut butter is an interesting spread.  I put some on a cracker for my granddaughter who pushed it away.  Then, I gave her a spoonful of peanut butter which she loved and wanted more.  I happen to agree with her.  There is nothing like a spoonful of peanut butter, rich and creamy and delicious.

I grew up on cream cheese and jelly sandwiches but I have a feeling others went the peanut butter and jelly route.  Did I miss out?

Childhood memories of strange and delicious foods.  I used to take a sandwich maker which was a metal mold on the end of a long pole that you put in a sandwich and hold over the fire.  I used to put apple sauce between two pieces of white bread and "cook" it and it was out of this world.  Who would have thought....?
