I can imagine you are in a hurry right now, because the feature photo of this post is making you crazy for brownies.
Like omg-must-have-them-now crazy.
I know this feeling. I had a craving for brownies with peanut butter swirl for a while now and they just had to be made! One early morning, when our neighbors were leaving for work, I was gathering ingredients for these brownies and knew that I can have my treat in less than 40 minutes. Plus waiting-to-cool time. That’s the worst part.
So, how about fudgy brownies with peanut butter swirl to end the work week with? You can thank me later. 🙂
This recipe uses my new favorite brownie base. I used to always make this recipe for cocoa brownies that will come out dense and super fudgy. I did a little bit of research and looked at my old BB Monday series and created a new recipe that makes fudgy, yet light brownies with crackly top. The secret lays in whipping the eggs with sugar until thick (exactly 3 minutes). It will produce the crackly top that reminds us all about the box version of brownies.
These bars are now my new favorite and I don’t think I will be changing it for a long time.
The peanut butter swirl is nothing more than just warmed up smooth peanut butter swirled into a brownie batter just before baking. It melts over the top and adds even more gooey factor to this dessert.
The crackly top gives a slight crunch when you take a bite. The lightness of these brownies is deceiving as the are packed with chocolaty goodness! Each bite simply melts in your mouth. The peanut butter swirl makes a perfectly balanced combination of peanut butter and chocolate in each piece.
I suggest you find 40 minutes of free time and make these brownies today! No need to wait till the weekend!
