Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Brownies

Do you like peanut butter?  How about chocolate?  Thinking... something like the Reese's combo... if you are here, you MUST love chocolate since I tend to share something that has chocolate in it pretty often.  I'm almost afraid to go back through old posts and see just how many recipes I've shared that have chocolate in them... might explain why I need to work out a bit harder every time I go to the gym, huh?

These brownies are more like blondies in color... but, their dense texture and perfect pairing of peanut butter and chocolate makes them totally irresistable!  Don't wait to make them... go to your kitchen and preheat your oven to 350 degrees right NOW!  I made them two times in one week - yes, they were THAT good!



Don't you want to grab a few to nibble on right now?  Seriously, don't wait to make these... your family and friends will love you for it!



Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Brownies
Source:  Southern Living All-Time Favorite Cookie Recipes

Ingredients
1/3 cup buttter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8-inch square pan (I covered mine in foil and then sprayed with cooking spray). 

Beat butter and peanut butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture, stirring well.  Stir in vanilla and choclate morsels.

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake for about 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into squares. 

Will keep well in a sealed container at room temperature for about 1 week - if they last that long!

Those look like fantastic brownies/blondies. I have seen chocolate brownies with peanut butter chips or cups, but I like how this twists the combo and has a peanut butter base. I bet milk chocolate chips would be great, too!!
