Reviews for Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies
"These brownies are SO good and very moist. Easy recipe to follow."
"For some reason, my brownies came out more of a cake texture rather than the "brownie" texture but peanut butter is my favorite, so I'll probably make it again"
"So good! I prefer the pb layer, so I divide the batter not so evenly. I've made these several times. Always a hit."
"These are easy to make & taste fantastic! My only complaint is that mine sunk in the middle - a common occurrence when baking brownies at a high altitude. If I make again, I will make some adjustments & try to fix that."
"These are easy to make and are okay. Not as delicious as I had hoped."
"Perfect! I love this recipe, its to die for...."
"Absolutely awesome! They're rich and the ultimate blend of peanut butter and chocolate. Also easy to make."
