Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies Recipe

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies Recipe

Peanut butter and chocolate are always a delicious duo, but they're extra-special paired in this tempting treat. Even with a sizable collection of brownie recipes, I reach for this one quite often. The marbled look attracts curious tasters...the flavor brings them back for seconds. - Linda Craig, Hay River, Northwest Territories

"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."
