Bunco Brownies

I have a confession to make.  I am not the best at following recipes.  I either change the ingredients or I just don't read what the instructions tell me to do.  Sometimes, this is that one time I made lasagna with avocado filling...gross.  Sometimes wonderful food is born.  Below is a prime example of this. I added more peanut butter than I was supposed to and the struesel filling turned into a peanut butter cookie topping instead.  I hope you like these as much as I did! 

These brownies went so fast I didn't have time to get a good pic

These brownies make a 9x13 pan.  If you want to do a 9x9 pan, just half the recipe.  

2 brownie boxes, prepared according to the box.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup  peanut butter
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 tsp. salt until blended and crumbly. 

Combine the above ingredients until a soft dough forms.

Pour brownie batter into greased 9x13 pan.  Take pieces of the peanut butter dough and cover brownie batter with it. (It is okay if all the brownie isn't covered.  The brownie that seeps through has a really good texture!)  Bake at 350 degrees 45-50 minutes.
