Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Here is another great dessert I served on Superbowl Sunday along with the Football Cupcakes. This recipe for Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies is very good. I found it in an Allyou magazine. The brownies are moist with a nice peanut butter flavor. Everyone enjoyed them! The ingredients are:

  • 4 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped (I used 4oz. semisweet chocolate chips)
  • 20 Tbsp. (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use all natural)
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13-by-9-inch baking pan with foil; mist foil with cooking spray. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with 2 sticks butter, stirring until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, cream peanut butter, brown sugar, cream cheese and remaining 1/2 stick butter until well combined, about 3 minutes. Beat in 1 egg.
  3. Whisk 4 eggs, sugar and vanilla into bowl with melted chocolate; mix well. Stir in flour and salt. Pour batter into baking pan. Spoon reserved peanut-butter mixture on top and use a sharp knife to swirl mixtures together. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 50 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut and serve.
