If you’ve ever watched The Parent Trap (the Lindsay Lohan version) then you’re familiar with the heavenly combination that is peanut butter and Oreos. I believe that it’s one of the most delicious and one of the most under-appreciated pairings out there. And so, to remedy this severe under-appreciation, I have created a brownie dessert that celebrates the marriage of peanut butter and Oreos in a seriously amazing way.

Hallie and Annie would definitely approve.
