Easy Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

 Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate are one of my favorite combinations.  So this Taste Of Home recipe caught my eye and I soon found myself adapting it to fit the ingredients I had on hand. 

It’s a rich, moist and delicious bar cookie that would be great to take to a party or get together.  (It’s easy, and looks pretty, too!!!)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C Butter, softened
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 1/2 C packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 C creamy peanut butter (I used @ 1/2 C, since I didn’t have peanut butter chips on hand)
  • 1/3 C peanut butter chips
  • 1/3 C baking cocoa (I plan to use a little less next time.  The chocolate flavor was pretty strong.)
  • 1/2 C semisweet chocolate chips (Again, I plan to use slightly less here, too.)  

Directions

Cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs and milk.  Mix.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt,  Add it and mix.

Divide batter in half.  To one portion, add peanut butter and peanut butter chips (if you have them) and mix.  To the other portion, add the cocoa and chocolate chips and mix.

In a greased 9 inch square baking pan, spoon chocolate batter in eight mounds in a checkerboard pattern.  Spoon seven mounds of peanut utter batter between the chocolate batter.  Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.

That’s it!  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
