Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Thats right. Peanut butter and ooey gooey chocolatey goodness come together in these brownies! So delicious. I mean, really, so good and I have nothing else to add. I made these because I was bored and wanted brownies. So let’s get to it. Start those ovens…

What you will need:

8 inch square or round pan, greased

For the brownies:

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup boiling water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Dash of salt

For the peanut butter:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup powdered sugar

To make the brownies, preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa powder and baking soda. Stir in half of the vegetable oil and the boiling water and mix until combined. Add in egg, the rest of vegetable oil and vanilla and mix until combined. Stir in flour and salt but do not over-mix. Pour batter into prepared pan and set aside.

To make the peanut butter, stir together butter, peanut butter and vanilla until nice and smooth. Stir in powdered sugar. Dollop over the brownie batter then swirl gently with a knife. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
