*PeRfEcT Peanut Butter Fingers

What is creamy and/or chunky, delicious, and can make all of your problems seem to melt away? There's only one right answer here, and you all know exactly what it is ... peanut butter. Whether you're eating it on a sandwich, in ice cream, on a banana, in cookies, or just feel the need to load up a spoon and enjoy it lick by lick, peanut butter is sure to make you feel better about pretty much anything. Unless you're feeling a little crazy and try to pair it in a shake with mint (I don't know why Dick thought that one would work!), but those are the few and very far betweens. This little dessert has been a personal fave for years, and I recently tasted the best recipe ever, so I had to try making it for myself. The secret touch to this recipe that sets it apart from all others I've tried is a generous layer of peanut butter on top of the "crust" just before you add the chocolate frosting. GENIUS! Ashley, whose brilliant idea that step of the process was has forever changed my peanut butter finger loving life. All I can say is pour yourself a glass of milk, and prepare yourself, because half of the pan will be gone before you know it!
