The other night we were all wishing we had a sweet treat for dessert, but it was also a busy evening so I needed to find something easy and quick. I checked the cabinet and found a box of brownies. As good as those are sometimes, we were in the mood for something a little bit more. So, we decided to upgrade our brownies! Brownies 2.0 is a delicious mix of chocolate and peanut butter that only takes a few extra minutes.
Start off by preparing the brownies according to the directions on the box. In my case, I added 2/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup water and 2 eggs to the brownie mix in a large bowl. I used a spoon to stir it 50 times, then poured the mixture into a greased 9" x 13" glass pan.
I set that to the side then put 1/3 cup peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds to make it more liquidy followed by mixing in a tablespoon of powdered sugar. I spooned dollops of the peanut butter mixture onto the brownie batter. Once all of the peanut butter had been added, I used a toothpick to swirl it throughout the pan.
After it is swirly enough, bake the brownies according to the directions on the box, in my case for 28 minutes. When the timer goes off, use a toothpick in the middle to make sure that the brownies are done. Then enjoy!
Paul and Gavin ate theirs with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and highly recommend it!
