Peanut Butter and Jelly Swirled Brownies…

Good Monday everyone!

Here is a brownie treat that makes me happy just typing about it. It’s no surprise that I LOVE jazzing up those brownie mixes, so here is another easy easy recipe that gives box mixes a major facelift! I’ve tried peanut butter and jelly in so many recipes, but had yet to try it swirled into brownies. Talk about heaven sent! You gotta try it. I splurged and bought this really cool chocolate bar brownie pan from William Sonoma last week (scroll down for pic and link). The brownies turned out even cuter than I thought they would, they look just like little chocolate bars. Use any 9×13 inch pan for this recipe if you don’t have this particular pan.

Forgive my overabundance of pictures in this post, the brownies were just so photogenic! Take a peek and enjoy!

LOVE this new Chocolate Bar Brownie Pan from William Sonoma!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Swirled Brownies

1 brownie mix of choice 9×13 size
1/2 Cup peanut butter, heated in microwave for 20 seconds or so until softened
3/4 Cup strawberry preserves

1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
2-3 Tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions; pour into greased 9×13 inch pan (or cute pan from William Sonoma). Swirl peanut butter evenly over brownies then place dollops of strawberry preserves evenly over top. Take a butter knife and swirl peanut butter and jelly throughout brownie batter without over swirling. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from center of pan. Let cool completely then cut into squares.

2. Place chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until smooth. Stir in cream until shiny and smooth; return back to microwave for 15 seconds if needed. Drizzle over top of brownies.

    What a great idea for jazzing up brownies! These look totally delicious. I love that you can see a bit of the PB. YUM! And that pan is so cool. It almost makes the brownies look fudgier–the fact that they’re in a candy bar shape.

    Thanks for your post. One other thing is that if you are advertising your property by yourself, one of the issues you need to be aware of upfront is when to deal with house inspection reports. As a FSBO retailer, the key about successfully moving your property as well as saving money with real estate agent profits is awareness. The more you know, the easier your property sales effort is going to be. One area when this is particularly critical is home inspections.
