Double Peanut Butter Paisley Brownies

Happy Summer my fellow Basil Bee bloggers! So circa this past Christmas, I received a chocolate lovers recipe book from my Director, Davina at work Hershey's Recipe Collection in 5-Ring Binder
I have been so busy with our wedding back in February and renovation of our home that I just haven’t had much time to bake, but the time came the week of Allison’s Bridal shower! We (the Bridesmaids) needed something a little extra to go with her bridal shower cake so I volunteered to make these brownie bars. When I went to reach up for the book off my new shelf in the kitchen I swear the book talked and signed ‘Ahhhhh finally!” …The recipe was really easy and if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, even easier! The chocolate syrup added the gooeyness to it and they were a huge hit at the party! Add a glass of milk with this and you’re in for a real treat! Enjoy!
