Peanut Butter Surprise Bars - revisited

The "surprise" is the peanut butter cup inside each piece

I've already blogged about these brownies from The Good Cookie by Tish Boyle and normally I wouldn't write them up again even though I'm baking them again but I wanted to post a better picture of them since I have a better camera now than the last time I took a picture of these.  And in case you're new to my blog and haven't seen some of the older posts, I thought I'd link the recipe back up.

I'm making these again because one of my nieces started college already and I promised to send her a care package.  I asked her what kind of brownies she wanted and her response was "the kind with Reeses that you make".  I actually make several different kinds with peanut butter cups but I think this is the one she meant.  And if not, she said she was going through "Tita brownie withdrawals over here" (they call me Tita which is the Filipino word for Aunt) so I figured these would still suffice, lol.
In case you want to see that peanut butter cup close up :)
This is a good brownie to put in a care package because it holds up well, even in warm weather.  Slice into individual pieces, wrap each piece in plastic wrap and ship in a small, sturdy box (the small flat rate USPS box is ideal since you don't have to worry about the weight of the box increasing the cost).  If you're mailing it with other flavors, it's not likely to overwhelm the other food items with peanut butter-ness since it's just the peanut butter cup that comprises the peanut butter part of the brownie.  But wrap it up separately anyway, just in case.
