Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Chocolate and peanut butter--nature's best flavor combo-come together in this classic brownie.


16 servings


2/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
2 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup peanut butter chips
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour.

Mix sugars, butter, milk and eggs in medium bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.

Divide batter in half (about 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons for each half). Stir peanut butter and peanut butter chips into 1 half. Stir cocoa and chocolate chips into remaining half.

Spoon chocolate batter into pan in 8 mounds, checkerboard style. Spoon peanut butter batter between mounds of chocolate batter. Gently swirl through batters with knife for marbled design.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely about 1 hour. For 16 brownies, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.

Additional Information

No peanut butter chips on hand? Butterscotch chips will work just as well.

The hills created when the knife is drawn through the batter disappear during baking.
