Epic Peanut Butter Brownies

Posted by: Ari Laing

Never was there a better match for homemade brownies than peanut butter, and these brownies are so fudgy and thick! They'll be on repeat for the sweet, salty flavor and crackly top!

  • 8x8" pan


  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 8 oz dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • cup mini peanut butter cups or chips
  • cup peanut butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper. 
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, combine butter and chocolate, then melt in 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring after each time. Butter and chocolate should be completely smooth.
  • Whisk in sugar, salt, and vanilla, then add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. 
  • Sift in flour and baking powder, and whisk for 1 minute. Pour half of batter into prepared baking pan. Top with peanut butter cups or chips, then pour remaining brownie batter on top.
  • Dollop peanut butter on top, then swirl into the batter using a butter knife. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Let cool for at least 10 minutes, then slice into 9 equal squares. 


For insanely gooey brownies, add 2 more tablespoons of butter, 1 additional egg (3 total), and cut back to only ½ teaspoon baking powder. You may have to eat them with a spoon, but you will definitely NOT regret it!
