Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

These bars, are beautiful, inside and out! They have a cake-like, dense texture, and are perfect with a glass of milk. The swirl on top makes these a sure favourite at a bake sale, or party, and it's surprisingly simple to do! When the bars have baked for a couple minutes,  the chocolate chips set on top have become melty ribbons, perfect for swirling through the batter with a butter knife. The bars have a delicious golden colour, and the chocolate is still all gooey! Just try to resist "sampling" one :)

You can see here that some of the chocolate didn't get completely swirled, which is totally fine!

This side view let's you see the inside of the bar. There isn't any chocolate in the bar, only on top, but you can definitely still taste it!

Don't worry about the swirl. I'm definitely not a professional food stylist, and I had no problem making these look pretty!

Here they are at a party. These are so quick to whip up, and so beautiful, they are perfect for any party or bake sale (reminder: these are peanut butter bars, so they aren't nut allergy friendly).

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies:
Adapted from PS Heart

1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sweetened peanut butter (if you use unsweetened, add 4 T sugar and  2 T milk)
3/4 cup brown or golden sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1/4 t salt
1 t baking powder

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 by 13 baking dish. Combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread the batter into the greased 9 by 13 and bake for 5 minutes until the chocolate chips are melted. Run a butter knife through the batter and chocolate creating a swirl. Bake for another 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (if there is some chocolate on the toothpick, don't worry :)
