Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I’m all about simple, classic dessert recipes that everyone loves. And these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies are just that….simply delicious! I mean the only thing that can make a brownie better is PEANUT BUTTER. Right!?

These Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies start out by using my favorite Homemade Fudgy Brownies recipe, I promise these brownies are just as easy to make as a brownie box mix but these brownies taste a million times better.

I swirled creamy peanut butter (or you could use chunky peanut butter for an extra crunch) into the brownie batter to make these delicious, family-favorite brownie recipe and I guarantee these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies will be a family favorite in your house too. ENJOY!

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies


✔  I like to use Milk Chocolate Chips to make these brownies, but you can also use semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips….it just depends on how rich you like your brownies to be.

✔ To make it super easy for you to cut the brownies into squares, line your 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the brownies have cooled, lift the brownies out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Then use a sharp knife to cut the brownies into squares.  

✔ I used creamy peanut butter to “swirl” on top of these brownies. But you could also use chunky peanut butter if you want to add an extra “crunch” to your brownies. Either way, these brownies will be amazing!
