I love spending time at her house. She makes special chocolate dishes just for me!
This trip she also brought out some toys from our childhood that I hadn’t seen in a really long time. Chocolate and memories…what could be better?!
These rich peanut butter brownies reminded us both of our mom, the original chocolate-peanut butter lover in our family.
Warning! These are sinfully rich! It was very hard to stop at one (so I didn’t!)
Peanut Butter Marble Brownies
Melt 1/2 cup butter in saucepan.
Stir in 1/3 cup of Hershey’s cocoa. Set aside.
In small bowl, beat 2 eggs until foamy. Gradually add 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Set aside.
In separate bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. salt.
Blend into egg mixture. Add cocoa mixture and 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips.
Remove 1/2 cup of batter and set aside. Spread remaining batter in a greased 9 inch square pan.
Melt 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips. In small mixer bowl combine 3 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted chips.
Spread over chocolate batter. Drop reserved batter on top. Use knife to swirl top. Bake 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
Creamy rich and delicious, now this is a recipe to make mom proud!
