I just got back from watching September Issue with some friends. Has anyone else watched it? I thought the movie was very intriguing. Anna Wintour didn’t come off nearly as rude and crude as everyone was saying she was. Don’t get me wrong….she’s not all warm and fuzzy either. She has to be somewhat hardcore being in charge of the leading fashion magazine. If you like documentaries and you like fashion, I definitely recommend it.
While I was home last weekend, my mom so kindly gave me a bag of chocolate and peanut butter chips. Thanks mom!! I haven’t bought peanut butter chips in a long time. I’m not sure why either…..I adore peanut butter and have made peanut butter cookies but never think to buy the chips. At any rate, I couldn’t wait to use these little guys in something. I hopped on google and searched for brownies with peanut butter chips. As soon as I came across this recipe, I knew I had to make them. SOOOO GOOD! They are soft, chewy and slightly crisp on the edges. I’m already thinking of different things to put in them…..mint chips, toffee, coffee, triple chocolate chunk. Make sure you add these to your “must bake list”…..they are delicious!
