Sharing Craftiness

Since we can't get together as often as we would like, this blog is to help us share some of the things that we create.

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

8 TBSP butter, cut into chunks

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

2 TBSP brown sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave, stirring often, 1 to 3 minutes. Let mixture cool slightly.

Whisk the sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl until combined. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture until smooth. Stir in flour until no streaks remain.

Scrape the batter into a prepared 8-inch square pan. Mix peanut butter and brown sugar together. Drop about 10 dollops over the batter. Using a butter knife swirl the peanut butter around the batter some.

Bake about 22 to 27 minutes.

(This recipe easily doubles to 9x13 pan. I like to melt the butter and chocolate seperate too.)


  1. I didn't get to make them because I ran outta butter so next sunday I will tell you how delicious they are. We have a strict only treats on Sunday rule.
