Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

I have a meeting today.  A meeting I’m not looking forward to attending.  So… what do I do?  I make it tolerable by baking something delicious to distract myself with during the meeting.  Today, I whipped up a batch of Peanut buttery fudgey brownies.

The recipe inspiration came from what I had on hand in my kitchen.  No cocoa powder, but I had unsweetened baking chocolate,  no chocolate chips, but I had peanut butter chips.  Brownies! YES!

FYI… make sure if you want ooey gooey brownies that you do not over cook these!  I made sure they cooked just the right amount of time and they came out perfectly fudgey and gooey!

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 cup flour, sifted
1 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F degrees.  Grease a 9×15 cake pan.
  2. Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  3. Add the eggs and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.   Make sure to scrape the sides/bottom of the bowl!
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly pour in the melted chocolate.  Scrape the sides and mix on medium/high speed about 30 seconds.
  5. By hand, mix in the flour until just incorporated.
  6. Fold in the peanut butter chips
  7. Spread batter evenly into the pan.
  8. Dollop the peanut butter on top of the batter.  Using a knife, gently swirl the peanut butter into the batter.  Not too much though, you don’t want the entire top to be covered in peanut butter, just a nice swirl.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting and serving!
