Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies DisplayBrownies are a classic chocolaty dessert that I enjoy year round. I discovered this recipe on Food Network prior to my “mommy days” when I had more free time to do things like watch T.V. These brownies are rich, full of delicious flavor and perfect for the chocolate-peanut butter combination lover. In other words…YUM! So naturally, they have earned a place in my recipe book collection and I am here to share them with you today!

bowl batterTo begin, you will need a double boiler. Melt together 2 sticks of butter, 4 ounces of semi-sweet baking chocolate and 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips {reserve 1/2 of cup of these chocolate chips for later use}. Set the mixture aside to cool. Then in a large bowl {a stand mixer if you have one} beat together 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons of sugar. Gradually add in the chocolate mixture until smooth. In a small bowl sift together 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix, but don’t over-mix.

Now you will need those chocolate chips. In a small bowl, mix them together with 2 tablespoons of flour. Then stir them into the brownie batter.

bakedBake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes. They may need an additional 5-10 minutes depending on your oven. Take them out, let them cool and ENJOY!!!
