PB & J Brownies---RECIPE

Need to make a creative dessert? Try a Mommy S. original---
Peanut Butter and Jam Brownies.
I use the brownie mixes from Costco...they're incredibly easy. Here's the recipe:

1 bag brownie mix
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup jam

1. Mix up the brownies.

2. Pour 2/3 of the batter on the bottom of a greased pan.

3. Soften about 3/4 cup peanut butter in a microwavable bowl. (30 seconds in microwave)

4. Pour softened peanut butter on top of the brownie bottom.

5. Soften about 3/4 cup jam in a microwavable bowl. (30 seconds)

5. Pour softened jam on top of peanut butter.

6. Spread the rest of the brownie batter on top of the jam.

7. Add nuts on top of the brownie batter.

8. I also added caramel syrup because I like my brownies sweet.

9. Bake for about 35 minutes...although each oven bakes differently, so keep checking the brownies to make sure you don't overbake them.

And now for a few pics...

The peanut butter layer.

The jam layer. (Organic strawberry jam...so yummy)

More brownie batter on top of the jam.

The finished product.

Good bread.

New at Costco---Honey Wheat Bagels. They're soft. They're delish. My husband loves them.

And if you haven't bought the NT$30 English muffins from I-Mei, you're missing out. They're really tasty and such a great deal.

Some (new) Costco goodies.

Tropical Fruit Pie. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm intrigued.

Not sure if this is new or not, but thought it was worthy of a picture. I didn't know that Smucker's made instant lemonade!

Eclairs? Hmmm...they don't look all that great. Has anyone tried them?

Iced tea drink mix.

And here's something that I'm starting to see everywhere now---coconut water. Pure coconut water...no sugar added. I've tried it, and I like it. If you haven't done any reading about the health benefits of coconut oil and other coconut products, then you're missing out on some important stuff. I think coconut is some of the best food on Earth...so I'm pleased to see that Costco is selling coconut water.
