Peanut Butter Brownies: fudgy, homemade brownies with swirls of creamy peanut butter! If you love chocolate peanut butter treats, you're going to LOVE these!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and add in chocolate chips and sugar.
    3. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add in eggs, one at a time, stirring completely after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
    4. Add the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Using big strokes, stir in JUST until mixed and no longer see dry ingredients. DO NOT BEAT OR OVER STIR.
    5. Pour batter into dish and dollop with peanut butter. Swirl peanut butter into brownie batter with a knife.
    6. Bake for about 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.

Notes

  • Do not over stir after adding the dry ingredients.
  • Use a plastic knife for cutting cooled brownies. Works like a charm without ripping the brownies.
  • Avoid using natural peanut butters as they tend to have oils that make them separate from the chocolate.
