Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe



With the weather getting cooler and Christmas around the corner, it seems more and more people are baking. You want to make yummy foods for friends and family or to bring to work or parties. The kids will need treats for school parties or you may have cookie exchanges. Brownies are a comfort food that I are delicious and so many people's favorite sweet. It's like a potato chip, you can't eat just one. Why not take the traditional brownie and make it extraordinary? Adding in an additional flavor, like peanut butter, will bring out the richness and add delicious flavor.

It is easier than you might think to create brownies from scratch. Homemade brownies taste so much better than the boxed stuff, and really take just a few more minutes to make. This recipe is quick, easy and the peanut butter sauce that you swirl into the mixture is out of this world. Swirl in the peanut butter to give it a professional look or you can drizzle extra chocolate on top to give it those important finishing touches.


Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2oz Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 2/3 cups Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar, separated
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup smooth Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup Light Corn Syrup

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8x8x2 square baking pan. In a small saucepan mix peanut butter, heavy cream, 3/4 cup sugar and light corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until melted and all ingredients are incorporated. Set aside to cool. In a separate saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Set aside. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate, larger bowl, beat eggs and 1 cup sugar until creamy. Incorporate vanilla and chocolate. Gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring until well combined. Pour mixture into baking pan. Using half of the peanut butter mixture, drop by the spoonful on top of the brownie mix. Using a knife, gently pull through batter. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Drizzle remaining peanut butter mixture on top of the cooked brownies. Cut into squares.
