Utterly Irresponsible Chocolate & Peanut Butter Brownies

WARNING: These are so fattening that you are likely to gain weight from the aroma alone.

1 cup granulated white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, melted & split
2 Tbsp water
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
3/4cup baking cocoa (recommended: Peets Dutch Cocoa)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
18 oz natural peanut butter, split

Mix together sugar, 3/4 cup butter, and water in a large bowl
Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well between each

In a separate dish, combine flour, baking powder, cocoa, and salt
Add to wet ingredients, stirring well

Mix the peanut butter and remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter

Spread half of the chocolate mixture over the bottom of a greased 13” x 9” baking pan

Spread half of peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer.

Top with remaining chocolate mixture

Add remaining peanut butter mixture, in rows
Drag a knife lightly through the peanut butter rows to make cute swirls and swishes

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. (A wooden toothpick inserted in the center should come out still a little sticky)

Yield: 30 mega-ultra fattening, super-dense brownies.
