About this recipe: If you're a fan of peanut butter and brownies, you're in for a real treat! Chewy brownies are swirled with a peanut butter cream cheese.
These brownies were fabulous. I wasn't sure what kind of delicious brownie mix to buy (they all look good), so I choose one with the extra chocolate packet I added a bit more peanut butter, cream cheese, and a tad more oil and they turned out to be fabulous-not greasy as I was worried. Also, I added milk choc. chips and peanut butter chips (mixed bag)which added flavor and texture. My husband went crazy over them and I know the whole batch will be gone within 48 hours! - 14 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I omitted the nuts as well. I added a bit more pb. These were good. Very rich. The only negative...I thought they came out a little greasier than the usual brownie but they were pretty good and a nice change of pace from the usual boxed brownie mix. - 22 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I chose this recipe because I wanted something quick and easy made with ingredients on hand. These brownies don't slap you with peanut butter flavor, but it is definitely there and they aren't bad. I didn't use the chopped nuts because I didn't have any, but I thought the result wasn't affected by that. I was surprised that the brownies came out more cakelike than fudgy, despite the "fudgy" recipe ingredient levels, but then I thought abut it and the peeanut butter cream cheese filling adds an extra egg to the mixture, so that would logically mean a more cakelike result. I might try it again but add only one egg to the brownie mix and 1/2 cup of water to see if the results were moister. My husband didn't like the way it came out as written. - 01 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
