Brownies are one of my favorite indulgent treats. Not that these all-star brownies need any help in the taste or texture department, but it is fun to change it up once in a while. Thus, I give you Peanut Butter Brownies! Marbled and full of flavor, these brownies are definitely a winner.
I had a girls night out a few weeks ago and since I was making brownies for hubby, I asked everyone to describe their perfect brownie. Whoa! That caused quite the passionate debate as everyone described and then defended their own version. Chewy? Cakey? Fudgy? Nuts or no? After that I am sure of two things. First, everyone seems to have a different opinion, and second, almost everyone’s Grandma/Mom made the best. Who would have ever thought the little brownie would stir up so much controversy?
So how would I describe these? Well, they are definitely leaning on the fudgy side but they have texture and won’t fall apart in your hands. I would not call them gooey or crumbly (cake-like) like some other variations can be. The top of my classic brownie recipe gives a nice shiny layer that hints to the dense heaven that is just below the surface. That’s just how they should be in my humble opinion. And, well, there is the peanut butter ribbon that perfectly accents the chocolatey-brownie flavor without overwhelming it.
Oh, and these bad boys are over an inch thick! Mine were an inch and a quarter but I know it may vary a slight bit. So let’s get to the recipe, shall we?!
