brownies in ruins.

don't mess with success. how many times have i said this.

& yet-- i took my favorite brownie recipe of all time.
the one i've been using for years.
the one that no other brownie recipe can compare to*:

peanut butter swirl brownies 002a

& i added a peanut butter swirl to it.

peanut butter swirl brownies 006a

no, no, no, no. NO.

peanut butter swirl brownies 040a

do not be fooled by the fudginess in the photo.

they were terrible.

it would be one thing if i'd ruined a pan of someone else's brownies. but to take the holy grail of brownie recipes & mess with it?

for shame.
