Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies


It's been a while since I have posted anything. I apologize for the brief hiatus. I have been super busy with school and work, that I have barely had a free moment. Fashion school is everything I expected and much more. Anyone who has gone to art school knows how intensive it is. I love how challenging it is, because it is something I am so passionate about.

 Fall is here; my absolute favorite time of the year. Comfort food is a definite must. If you are looking for something that is super comforting, then look no further. These brownies are so good. They have a nice twist with the peanut butter, Reece's pieces, and peanut butter chips. They are easy to make, but they certainly do not taste like it. They make a great fall dessert.  There are also a definite crowd pleaser.

Brownies:


2/3
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
tablespoons milk
2
eggs
3/4
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4


cup peanut butter
1/2
cup peanut butter chips
1/3
cup baking cocoa
1/3
cup Reece's Pieces



Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper,
and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, stir flour, salt and baking
powder together. Set aside.



Combine: butter, sugars, eggs, and milk. Gradually add flour mixture.
Divide batter in half: Add Peanut butter & peanut chips to one half, and cocoa powder
 & Reece's Pieces in the other. 
Stir until combined.
Drop chocolate batter in 8 spoonfuls into the pan. Follow with the peanut
butter batter, between the chocolate batter. Take a knife, and swirl the batters together. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely before serving/cutting
Bon App├ętit!
