Peanut Peanut Butter Brownies

By Christy

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... I love the marriage of chocolate and peanut butter flavors! I remember when I was little mom used to take low fat chocolate ice cream bars and put chunky peanut butter on the sides of the bar. What a genius idea! I really did think that treat hung the moon (and I'm pretty sure it probably still does). That was the beginning of the love affair for me, chocolate and peanut butter. Therefore when baking with peanut butter came up this week of course my go to was to give you all a recipe with a combination of both.  Today I present to you a peanut peanut butter brownie. It is rich, moist, and super easy to make!

1 box of brownies prepared according to box
3/4 cup of salted peanuts
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1- 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk

Preheat the oven to 350 and prep a 9x13 pan with butter or baking joy spray.
Prepare the brownie mix according to the box directions. Once well combined add the peanuts to the brownie batter. Split the batter in half. Put half the brownie batter into the bottom of the pan - use a spoon to spread it out.
Mix together the peanut butter and condensed milk until well combined. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the brownie batter in the pan. Take the remaining brownie batter and crumble it over the top of the peanut butter mixture as evenly as possible. Using a spoon swirl the top brownie layer into the peanut butter. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 or until firm in the center.
