Made them plain because that's all the ingredients I had...great basic brownie recipe!! Added PB & white chip "frosting" to finish them off. Everyone was happy :)
Incredibly moist and decadent chocolate brownies, with optional macaroon topping and optional chocolate peanut butter frosting. For a simple chocolate treat, create brownies without topping or frosting; for special occasions, add one or both! - Dale Bentley
