Marbled Peanut Butter Brownies

This is a fun way to dress up a box of brownies. For the most delicious peanut butter chocolate combo, I would still go for the buckeye brownies, but these are good too, and a little easier.

Start by making a boxed brownie mix according to the directions: combine the mix, 2 eggs, water and oil and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour the batter into a greased cake pan and set aside.

For the peanut butter layer, combine the cream cheese, peanut butter, egg, sugar,

and milk

and beat with a mixer until smooth. Drop the peanut butter batter in heaping spoonfuls on top of the brownie batter,

and drag a table knife through the layers to create swirls.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Marbled Peanut Butter Brownies

1 brownie mix (for 9x13 pan)
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
3 eggs, divided
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. milk

In a large bowl, mix together the brownie mix, oil, water and 2 eggs with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, and milk until smooth.

Drop the peanut butter filling over the top. Using a knife, gently swirl through the layers for a marbled effect.

Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out almost clean. Cool completely, then cut into bars.
