Happy Labor Day weekend to everybody! I hope everyone is enjoying this nice long three day weekend with their families, I know I am! It’s always so nice when we get an extra day to spend with Mike! Onto more important things though.. these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies. Nobody would ever know these brownies are made from a box mix. Seriously, the amount of oooh’s and ahhh’s I got from these proved it to be true. I originally made these for my cousin Michelle because we went over her house two weekens ago and she requested “something crazy.. something peanut butter.. something with oreos.” Wellll, I took her ideas and combined them into one and BAM.. these brownies were born. Aren’t I the best cousin ever? I knew I had to re-make them to share with you guys since I got such amazing feedback!
The brownies are extremely moist and fudgey. See how dark in color they are? SO chocolatey! The chocolate chips you see pictured come in the brownie mix. Once the brownie batter is mixed, I folded in some chopped oreos. I left mine pretty large and chunky because they somewhat dissolve into the brownies and you may not be able to see them BUT you will taste them. After they are baked and cooled completely, I topped them off with a simple chocolate ganache glaze swirled with a little bit of melted peanut butter. Nothing fancy here, just a few no-fuss ingredients!
This recipe is seriously so easy and the results are MIND blowing. The peanut butter swirl makes them look so pretty and perfect.
