Peanut Butter swirl Fudge Brownies

Nor A.M


I love Peanut butter and chocolate together. I took my favorite brownie recipe which was tweaked,and combined it with a Peanut butter swirl filling. these brownies are deep dark chocolate,and thick with a Peanut butter swirl mingling through out them. They are surely decadent. Grab a tall glass of milk and dig in!
