Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

    I long have believed that a death by drowning in a pool of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups would be quite the way to go (is that even possible? sign me up to test the theory.). That and dying at 99 during an escapade with my 20-year-old lover. Hey, it could happen. 

    Having said that, you can probably figure that a peanut-y chocolate-y craving occurs frequently over here. When I don't have some Reese's on hand, I really have to improvise. If I'm lucky enough to have ingredients for brownies and some peanut butter on hand, I whip up some swirl brownies. Today I only had the box mix at home. :'( Nothing compares to my homemade brownies, but I do admit, there's a chewiness to box brownie mix that you can't quite replicate at home.

   I did not want to wait for my sweets fix, so thank goodness this was quick and easy to make. I mixed up the brownies as directed on the box, then I took my tub 'o peanut buttah (there wasn't much left of it) and made it a little more runny by adding milk. I swirled that onto the brownies, and baked until the edges cooked and the center was gooey! :D

      Probably ate a little too much, but if you can convince yourself that chocolate and peanut butter are good for you, you're all set!

Hello, there!

You know you want some.

       Someone else please make these. Solidarity! Make me feel less guilty for eating them. Or maybe I'll feel more guilty for having turned you onto this stuff? Muahahahaha!


  1. Yes please! These look so decadent! You're killing us here! LOL

  2. These look delicious. Is there any better combination than chocolate and peanut butter?

  3. Thank you! And honestly, there truly isn't anything greater! :)
