Peanut Butter Goes with Everything? Right??

Maybe not Everything. But, it does go very well with chocolate! Dark Chocolate, that is!

Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Swirled Brownies. Now, I’ve got your attention!

This is so simple. I had an 8 year old helping me and I felt she knew more about this process than I did!

The only thing you really need to take from this, is the recipe for the peanut butter filling. It’s basic and very sweet and tasty. I had numerous YEAH‘s from the “peanut gallery” when I was making it (no pun intended). I didn’t hear any complaints about licking spoons afterwards!!

Just take a box of Dark Chocolate brownie mix. Create the brownie mix per package instructions, using the “cake” method (I used a Duncan Hines mix- added 2 eggs, 1/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup water). Mix all in one bowl.

In a small bowl add 4 Tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Spray an 8×8 or 9×9 round cake pan with cooking spray and pour in the brownie mixture. Then spoon in tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture. Swirl this in with a knife. 

Bake per package instructions. My package stated 350 degrees. I baked for 35 to 40 minutes. Until no longer jiggly.  Cool for about 20 minutes. Then cut into wedges and serve. Dollop with ice cream if preferred.

    That would be perfect to add to my home-made brownies. I can’t wait to tell my daughter, she is the browning maker of the house.
