For the Brownie Batter:
● 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
● 1 cup granulated sugar
● 2 large eggs
● 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
● 1/3 cup cocoa powder (high-quality brands like Ghirardelli or Valrhona work well)
● 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
● 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

For the Peanut Butter Swirl:
● 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (you can use popular brands like Jif or Skippy)
● 1/4 cup powdered sugar
● 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
● 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Cooking Time:
● Preparation Time: 15 minutes
● Baking Time: 25-30 minutes
● Total Time: Approximately 45-50 minutes


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    ● Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    ● Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides
    for easy removal.
  2. Prepare the Brownie Batter:
    ● In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the 1/2 cup of butter in 20-second increments until fully
    ● In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Mix until well
    ● Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Beat until the mixture is
    smooth and creamy.
    ● Sift in the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Gently fold the dry
    ingredients into the wet ingredients until no streaks remain. Do not overmix; you want a
    fudgy texture.
  3. Prepare the Peanut Butter Swirl:
    ● In a separate small bowl, combine the smooth peanut butter, powdered sugar, melted
    butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and well combined.
  4. Assemble the Brownies:
    ● Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly with a
    rubber spatula.
    ● Drop spoonfuls of the peanut butter swirl mixture over the brownie batter in the pan.
  5. Create the Swirl Pattern:
    ● Use a butter knife or toothpick to create a swirling pattern. Drag it through the brownie
    and peanut butter mixture to create a beautiful marbled effect.
  6. Bake the Brownies:
    ● Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick
    inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
    ● Be careful not to overbake; slightly underdone brownies are the key to their fudgy texture.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    ● Once done, remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan on a
    wire rack for about 30 minutes.
    ● Lift the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang and let them cool
    completely on the rack before cutting them into squares.
  8. Enjoy!
    ● Serve these irresistible peanut butter brownies with a glass of cold milk or a scoop of
    vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.
