I'm just a busy wife and mom who loves to cook (and hates to clean up afterward), balancing the many hats I wear and trying to look cool, calm, and collected while doing it...

Oh, and I rarely measure anything when I cook, so consider yourself warned. Love good food. Try new things. Eat to your heart's content.

Chocolate Chip Brownies with Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting... Because "Shark Week"

Sometimes the only cure for certain... monthly ailments... is chocolate overload.
And oh boy, do these super easy brownies do it for me!
I use the $.98 family size box of Market Pantry brownie mix from Target. These are seriously THE BEST brownies from a mix. And for less than a buck, you can't beat 'em!
Add chocolate chips, chocolate frosting, and peanut butter, and you're in business!
I don't know what else to say about these, other than they're easy and delicious, and will bring world peace.
Well, at least they're the first two things...
Chocolate Chip Brownies with Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting
1 family size (9x13) box brownie mix.
1/2 cup oil
1/4 water
2 eggs
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 can Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy chocolate frosting
1/2-3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (you can use chunky if you want...)
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine brownie mix, oil, water, eggs, and chocolate chips until well incorporated, but don't over mix.
Bake for 24-26 minutes.
While those are baking, remove the foil cover from the can of frosting. Pop it in the microwave for about 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds or so. When it's a nice, warm, melted consistency, add the peanut butter right into the can, and stir until combined.
It should be melted enough to just pour out, so when the brownies are done and still hot, pour it over the top, and spread it around evenly. Pop it back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes, until the top is set.
Remove, and let cool at least 15-20 (if you can... so you don't burn your mouth!)
