Today is my baby girls 11th birthday. I cant believe my little girl is 11. I am getting old. She is having a birthday week instead of just one day. We had an Oscar themed sleepover party last Saturday for 9 screaming girls with lots of candy. They watched a movie out on the new deck under the stars. I was under the gun to finish the deck for the party and I just made it. They had a great time with candy, popcorn and a nacho bar. Today, on her birthday, we will go out to dinner at a local Hibachi grill (Her Favorite) and then come back to our house for a family treat and gifts.
I made these CandyBar Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies which has all of her favorites in one scrumptious bar.
She is not a big cake girl, even though in years past my kids have asked me to make them all sorts of cake creations. I think it is time for a detox….. Happy Birthday Ella. I hope you had a great day. You are a wonderful young lady.
This is a really simple brownie bar to make with a peanut butter fudge layer. If you want the fudge to be more like a frosting use less peanut butter, more marshmallow creme and a little more milk. You can play with fudge recipe to suit your taste and consistency you like. Mine is more like a fudge than a frosting. This is very sweet and one slice is all you need.
