I will admit, I do love to bake, I had to try this recipe out and I loved it, and so did the rest of my family, this might be a new favorite desert I make- and it was a good recipe to make with a preschooler, lots of ways to let her "help"
This recipe is from none other than the Pampered Chef (they always have the best recipes for families.)

|1.||Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray Torte Pans with nonstick cooking spray with flour. Place 8-in. circles of Parchment Paper over centers of pans; set aside. InStainless (4-qt.) Mixing Bowl, combine brownie mix, eggs, 1/2 cup of the oil, water and peanut butter; mix well. Divide batter between pans, spreading to edges. Bake 10-12 minutes or until centers feel firm to the touch.|
