I love peanut butter and chocolate together; one of my favorite combinations!  The other day the kids wanted brownies, but I was in the mood for something with peanut butter.  I decided to make a peanut butter mousse then swirl it on top of rich, decadent brownies.  To top it off I took some milk chocolate, melted it down and drizzled it on top.  We made them into tarts so they are bite size and you can toss them right into your mouth!
