Have I ever mentioned that I used to never be a big fan of brownies?

I know, I know…crazy, right?

Well, let me clarify. I have always liked brownies, but when I was younger, I would gladly pass up brownies for a cookie, muffin, or just about any other sweet treat. I’ve also mentioned before that I don’t have the biggest sweet tooth, though my tastes have definitely evolved as I’ve gotten older.

Now, I eagerly look forward to munching on a donut, muffin, slice of cake, and brownies. Yes, brownies!

You may remember these Brownie Bites with Nutella Frosting from a few months ago. That was my second brownie recipe that I’ve shared on Pumpkin ‘N Spice, and probably one of my favorites. I mean, brownies…need I say more? I’m SO glad I came around to loving them!

You all know I love peanut butter, so it only seemed natural to combine it into this simple, one bowl, dessert. These Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies are loaded with flavor. A chocolate brownie base, with chocolate morsels, peanut butter, and peanut butter cups…wowsers. Definitely the perfect, easy brownie!

Like most of my recipes, these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies are a breeze to whip up. The brownie mix is made in one bowl and then popped into the oven to bake.

Once the brownies have cooled, it’s time to swirl on some chocolate and peanut butter. Simply melt some chocolate wafer (or chips) in the microwave and then spread on top of the brownies. Then, it’s time for the peanut butter! Melt the peanut butter slightly in the microwave so that it’s easy to spread, and then drop by the spoonful on top of the chocolate. Swirl with a knife and then top with peanut butter cups. Easy peasy, right?

One bite and you’ll fall in love with the rich chocolate and peanut butter explosion. The soft and chewy texture, combined with the decadent flavor equals pure perfection. Easy to make and even better to eat, these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies will be your new, go-to dessert!

Ingredients
 

  • 1 box brownie mix, any kind
  • Ingredients needed for mix, as directed on box
  • 1 cup chocolate wafers or chocolate chips, I like to use Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • Mini peanut butter cups, roughly chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with foil or parchment paper, letting hang slightly over sides. Lightly grease with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, prepare and bake the brownies according to package directions.
  • Allow brownies to cool completely once out of the oven.
  • In a medium, microwaveable safe bowl, melt the chocolate wafers (or chips) until smooth and creamy, stirring every 15 seconds so mixture doesn't burn. Spread melted chocolate evenly over top of brownies.
  • In a small bowl, heat peanut butter for about 10-15 seconds, or just until it's slightly melted and easier to spread. Drop peanut butter in small spoonfuls over chocolate frosting.
  • Drop peanut butter in small spoonfuls over chocolate topping. Using a butter knife, gently swirly to create a marble affect. Top with chopped peanut butter cups.
  • Let brownies set until frosting has slightly hardened.
