Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies Recipe

Are you ready to meet the best brownie recipe ever? I know, I didn’t think that this one would be The Best, but believe you me, it is so soft and chewy and the perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate that you will be amazed!

Although our oldest son decided he liked the Cookies and Cream Brownie recipe better which really surprised the rest of us! We couldn’t stay out of these peanut butter brownies.

I made mine in a slightly larger pan, a 9 x 13, because I don’t have the size listed. It didn’t swirl as easily as it probably would have but wow these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies are fantastic!
