Michelle's Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Here is a yummy recipe from http://www.allrecipes.com/. It is a very rich brownie recipe and has a mild peanut butter taste. I love just about anything with peanut butter and chocolate so this was the perfect recipe for me. I liked the addition of chocolate chips to the recipe. It gives it more chocolate flavor which we all love! I know I do! I will definitely be adding it to my brownie collection. Yum! Also, if you don't feel like making your own brownie batter, you could always substitute the second half of the ingredients with a boxed brownie mix and add the ingredients based on what the package states. The only change I made was using 8 oz of cream cheese instead of 6 oz. Enjoy!

Michelle's Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk

1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 eggs
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, and milk until smooth. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, 2 cups white sugar, and vanilla. Mix in the remaining 3 eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; mix into the batter. Stir in chocolate chips.
Remove 1 cup of the chocolate batter. Spread the remaining batter into the prepared pan. Spread the peanut butter filling over the top. Drop the reserved chocolate batter by teaspoonful over the filling. Using a knife, gently swirl through the top layers for a marbled effect.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out almost clean. Cool completely, then cut into bars.
