buckeye brownies

When I saw these I knew I had to make them because they look pretty amazing. I thought of our friend John who is from Ohio as I pulled out the ingredients to make them.  I didn't know a lot about Ohio when  I met him (and I still don't) but one thing I learned about Ohio from him is this- being a Buckeye fan is just part of the culture.  John is a Buckeye.  We had the sister missionaries over for dinner on Sunday and one was from Ohio so I made these for her.  She said they made her feel right at home.

buckeye brownies (Lil' Luna)
1 box fudge brownie mix
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips

In a 9x13 prepared pan, make and bake brownie mix according to box directions.  Let cool.
In a bowl mix the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and peanut butter.  Spread with fingers over the brownies and pat down (it has a consistency similar to playdough).  It helped me to wet my fingers because it was sticky!
Melt together 6 tablespoons butter and chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat stirring constantly.  Spread over brownies.
