Amazing Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

"If you love peanut butter then this is for you, these are moist, rich and they bake out perfrectly, I made mine in an 11 x 7-inch baking pan but you can also bake it in a 13 x 9-inch pan and adjust the baking time slightly --- you don't need a mixer to make this everything is mixed by hand and you won't even need icing on these, just serve these topped with ice cream, yield is only estimated."

  1. So easy to make, and it tasted great too. I made mine in a 9x13 pan and baked it for 30 mins. I'll definitely make this again sometime. Thanks for the recipe!
  2. Yum! I baked these in a 9 X 13 pan for 35 minutes and they are perfect in every way. We love the peanut butter and chocolate combination and these bars are oh so moist too! Thanks, Kit. :-)
  3. These really were amazing!!! I used natural peanut butter, used a 13X9 pan & baked for 25 minutes. Simply delicious; thank you so much for sharing!!!
  4. I don't know what happened... I'm a very experienced baker, but these seemed to have too much butter - the middle wasn't cooked all the way through. The edge pieces were good, but not really anything special.
  5. Took these to work and some people said they really liked it! No one said they didn't like it. I made a batch to yield 15 bars and used 3 medium eggs, kept the original 1.5 cups chocolate chips and used natural peanut butter. I thought the peanut butter flavour was spot on. They were a little crumbly but it's not a drawback. A tasty treat for sure.
