Chocolate and Peanut Butter Overload

It's as sweet as it looks.
And as delicious.
And as peanut buttery and chocolaty as you could imagine.
I like to call it a soft, chewy, chocolaty, peanut buttery, bit of heaven.
I asked one of the girls at work what she wanted for her birthday treat. She replied "something with chocolate and peanut butter"...this was as "chocolate and peanut butter"-y as I could come up with without risking putting everyone into a sugar coma.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Overload

Bottom Layer
1 box fudge brownie mix (and ingredients to prepare)
1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
1/3 cup peanut butter chips

Peanut Butter Layer
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup marshmallow creme
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup icing sugar

Top Layer
6 oz Swiss chocolate, roughly chopped
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp corn syrup
9 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 X 9 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Prepare brownie according to package directions. Stir in peanuts and peanut butter chips.
Bake at 350 until brownie is cooked - be careful not to over bake. Remove from heat and let cool to room temp.

Prepare peanut butter layer: In a large bowl, beat together peanut butter, marshmallow creme, butter, and vanilla. Slowly beat in the icing sugar until well combined.
Spread over cooled brownie.

Prepare chocolate top layer: In a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate, butter, and corn syrup for 20 seconds. Stir. Heat in 20 second intervals - stirring well in between - until smooth.
Spread evenly over marshmallow layer.

Evenly sprinkle with the chopped Reese's cups.

Let chill until set.

I must warn you. This is not for the faint of heart.
People *cough* Sue *cough* who don't like sweet things will run away screaming.
That's okay just leaves more for the rest of us....
