READY IN: 42mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 8-inch square baking pan with foil (letting foil hang over sides) and grease.
  • Melt butter and chocolate together in the microwave, stirring often, 1-3 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture until combined. Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated.
  • Scrape batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
  • Drop the peanut butter in small dollops over the brownie batter, then run a knife through the batter to swirl.
  • Bake brownies 22-27 minutes, rotating pan halfway through, until a toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  • Let brownies cool completely in the pan on a wire rack, for about 2 hours. Remove brownies from pan by grabbing two sides of foil and lifting. Cut into squares.
