My welcome? What about it?

And your food blog sucks. A much better option that even Farkers can do:
Make one box of Ghirardelli Ultimate brownies in a 9" square pan
Cool completely in the pan
Spread evenly with creamy peanut butter, about a quarter inch thick
THEN add the chocolate topping from the package
Let it set before you cut
Om nom nom...

^THIS

But what I do is not use peanut butter, and mix almond butter in the mix AND Mini Resse's Peanut Butter Cups in the brownie mix....before it's cooked! Then cook, cool, consume.

NOM!

It's a really fudgy Resse's brownie.

I have a number of variations for Ghirardelli mixes, like substituting cherry wine for water. When really get fancy, I go this route:

Add to the mix:
extra Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips
crushed cocoa encrusted almonds
shredded coconut
Kraft mini-marshmallows (don't use off-brand!)
a little extra oil

Spread into glass baking dish, then add a layer of shredded coconut. Top that with a layer of mini-marshmallows. Put a very loose piece of plastic wrap over it, enough to allow it to expanded up a couple of inches. Put the dish into a microwave and run it on high for about 10-12 minutes, time varies by microwave so keep an eye on it. The mini-marshallows will of course turn in macro-marshmallows which the plastic will expand to contain. They will eventually dissolve though, both adding marshmallow flavor to the brownies and creating a glaze over the top layer of coconut. When done, carefully remove the plastic while wearing oven mitts. Molten marshmallow has similar properties to napalm so you've been warned. Let cook, cut up and eat. I call them PJs, short for Pancreas Jumpstarters.

Reduced fat or fake anything is just wrong when cooking or eating. I make all my cookies with real butter and they are delicious.

Someone gave me a free month, I didn't see any. Might have convinced me to stay if I had. I was underwhelmed with TFD as a whole.

As to the topic at hand: I'm surprised we got a whole two posts in before someone said 'that's disgusting and you suck and that's why you have heart diabetes cholesterol attacks fatass and here's my much better version'. Honestly thought it'd be the topper.

I like peanut butter. I like brownies. But I think I like my brownies just moist and not super chunky chewy, possibly with nice icing or frosting. Peanut butter changes the consistency too much, so it's much more sticky and chewy, so I'll pass.

(Adapted from Bake or Break)
Makes 1 dozen brownies
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon water
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
1 large egg*
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter*
*Healthy Swaps: I used egg whites instead of an egg (2 egg whites per egg called for) and reduced fat creamy peanut butter.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease 12 muffin cups.
In a medium sized microwave-safe bowl combine sugar, softened butter, and water. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir in 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Stir in egg and vanilla extract, mix well. Add flour and baking soda, stir until combined. Allow the batter to cool to room temperature (doesn't take very long). Then, stir in 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet. After brownies are out of the oven, wait for centers to fall. This will happen upon cooling. If not (they did not for me) then tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds then stir. While brownies are still war spoon about a tablespoon full of peanut butter into the center of each brownie. Top with remaining 1/3 cup of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Cool completely in pan. 
Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator. To reheat the brownies just pop 'em in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Liz, the official taste tester, and I found that we liked the brownies when they were warm and when they were cooled in the fridge for a little bit. So try both, it's an excuse to eat two, enjoy!
Bon Eating,
Whitney

I've had a lot of peanut butter chocolate shakes in my day. They are indeed very good. Is there something about the one at Denny's that would be better than one from the incredible burger joint down the street or the ice cream place I plan on visiting later today? Is there a super secret ingredient or something?

Good question. I doubt there's anything terribly special about it.. Maybe I was just really hungry, but it tasted like a liquid Reese's cup.

Also, I've not had a lot of peanut butter chocolate shakes. If there are better ones out there, I don't need to know about them. I already have a beer gut.

No, no, no. Too many ingredients. Take 2 brownie mixes of your choosing, stir in a package of Reese's peanut butter cup minis, and bake per the package directions. No need to fool with all the flour and crap.

Vegans can eat as much junk food as we want as long as it doesn't have animal parts or dairy. You would be surprised how easy it easy to take recipes like this and swtich out the eggs for another type of binding material. And as for the whole scrambled eggs/quiche thing, tofu scrambles are easy as hell to make to where you would almost not even know it was tofu.

That being said, very little of what I eat is tofu. The way i see it, if you can read a label/cookbook and open your mouth to have someone ditch the dairy on a vegetarian dish when eating out, then you can be a vegan. Good example: Taco Bell 7 layer burrito. Ditch the sour cream and cheese and viola: a 5 layer buritto.

You could. You could replace an egg with potato, tapioca and cellulose. You could also smear yourself with feces and run naked through your local police station. But why?? In neither scenario are you going to end up with an optimal result, and to think otherwise is self-deception. Stick to eating twigs and berries, and maintain your self-respect.

Three times the effort for half the taste. No one thinks vegans eat 'twigs and berries' seriously, but 90% of all deserts are conceptually involved with dairy or eggs. You can make stuff that's vegan and good, but it requires more effort, and, dropping the tangental insincere semi-lie, will also need to be 'organic local grown hand picked etc. etc. etc.'

Now peanut butter and marmite on toast, that goes well. Especially if it's crunchy peanut butter.

Heh, nutella is pretty tasty, and at least does contain a fair amount of chocolate. I have tried Reeses and various other concoctions, I just find it a little weird, and a little stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth-y.

Pecan-maple pie OTOH, is a think of joy.

I make deserts all the time...with non organic ingredients. My wedding cake involved 5 different flavors of vegan cupcakes...NONE with organic ingredients.
