Peanut Butter Swirled Brownies

Can I just tell you how much I love peanut butter? Seriously. Creamy, crunchy, honey roasted, I love it all. Go even further and swirl it into some brownies and I'm in heaven! This is a quick and easy upgrade to your regular boxed brownie mix. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now THAT's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

1 brownie recipe, either boxed or your own
1 cup peanut butter
3 oz cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Mix up brownie mix as directed. Spread half of brownie batter in a 9x13 pan. Mix together peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Spread peanut butter filling on top of brownie batter. Drop dollops of remaining brownie batter over peanut butter filling. Swirl with knife. Bake in a 350F oven for 30 minutes.

I used a boxed mix, but instead of adding 2 tbs of water as the recipe required, I added 2 tbs of Kahlua. It added just the right punch!

They were very tasty. I didnt have cream cheese so I made the reciepe without it. They took almost an hour to cook with the box type.
