Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

There is no better snack than a rich chocolaty brownie with a glass of cold milk… except maybe a chocolaty peanut buttery brownie. These brownies were inspired by Alice Medrich’s celebrated recipe for Best Cocoa Brownies. They’re fudgy and moist, and pretty much everything a brownie should be. In my humble opinion, the only way to improve on that lovely recipe was to add peanut butter, which adds a nutty complexity.

Indulgent Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients

Indulgent Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies Ingredients - Mighty Nut Chocolate powdered peanut butter

For the brownies
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons Peanut Butter & Co.
Cocoa Peanut Powder

4 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour

For the swirl
6 tablespoons Peanut Butter & Co. Cocoa Peanut Powder
3 tablespoons water

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line an 8 X 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over all 4 sides (so you can easily lift the brownies out later).

 

2. Add the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, powdered peanut butter, water, and salt to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk continuously until the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy, about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool 5 minutes.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

 

5. For the swirl, stir together the powdered peanut butter and water in a small bowl.
