Peanut Butter Filled Brownies (Recipe)

Last week for Friday's Fave Five, I included a photo of peanut butter-filled brownies. As promised, here is the recipe.

1. Heat oven to 350F.  Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

2. Mix the filling from the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups recipe.  Set aside.
  • 6 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
3. Make the batter for Cocoa Brownies:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts [I omitted this]
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Mix sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.

4. Put it all together and bake.
  • Spread about half of the batter in the pan.
  • Drop spoonfuls of peanut butter filling onto the batter, and carefully spread it over the surface (without going too close to the edge of the pan).
  • Drop the remaining batter, by spoonfuls, over the filling.  Spread it carefully to cover the peanut butter layer.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes.

These are delicious whether they're warm, chilled, or frozen. We forgot to try them at room temperature, so I guess I need to make another batch!
