Peanut Butter Lovers Brownies

I knew Steve would love these. This is his favorite thing to eat. It's from Tiffany's adoption fundraiser cookbook, which you should buy. It's actually Tiffany's own recipe, too. Made them for home fellowship so that we wouldn't eat them all ha ha.

Peanut Butter Lovers Brownies
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 tbsp water
1 2/3 cup chopped peanut butter cups
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 13x9 pan. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and beat well. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with water. Stir in 1 cup peanut butter cups. Spread into pan. Combine peanut butter and sugar in a small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds on high. Stir until smooth and drop by teaspoonfuls over brownie batter. Swirl with knife. Sprinkle remaining peanut butter cups on top. Bake 25 minutes or until knife comes back clean (mine took more like 32 minutes).

These came out so amazing. Best brownies I have ever had. I'm not a huge brownie fan. Mostly I like the batter more than the baked brownie. But these, I liked the batter AND the baked brownie. Seriously so good. Everyone who tried them liked them. The kids at home fellowship don't usually like my desserts, so this was a nice change for them ha ha.
