Chocolate - Peanut Butter Brownies
Makes 8-10 Brownies
1 package Wheat- Free Market Brownie Mix
2 large eggs
¼ cup warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup butter
¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Ingredients (Peanut Butter Filling):
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Virtue Sweetener
½ cup natural peanut butter (smooth)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan (for thick brownies as pictured) or an 8x8 inch pan.
In a medium bowl, blend brownie mix, eggs, water and vanilla. In a small bowl, microwave ¼ cup butter with chocolate chips approximately 45 seconds or until chocolate has melted. Blend well and add melted chocolate to brownie mixture.
Prepare peanut butter filling by melting the 2 tablespoons of butter and sweetener together in the microwave or on the stove. Once melted, stir in peanut butter until smooth.
Add half of the brownie batter to the bottom of the prepared pan, being sure to spread the batter out evenly. Pour 2/3 of the peanut butter mixture over the brownie layer followed by the remaining brownie mixture. Pour the remaining peanut butter filling on top and using a butter knife, swirl the peanut butter into the brownie mixture.
If using loaf pan, bake for 25 minutes. If using 8x8 inch pan, bake for 18-20 minutes.
Allow to cool before cutting.
