These Mississippi Mud Brownies are rich, chocolaty, and drizzled in peanut butter! What more could you want in a brownie?

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Microwave chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals.

Step 2

Beat 1 cup butter and 2 cups granulated sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add 4 eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add melted chocolate, beating just until blended. Add 1 cup flour, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Spread half of batter in a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

Step 3

Beat peanut butter, brown sugar, and remaining 1/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup granulated sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add 2 eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir together baking powder and remaining 1 cup flour, and add to peanut butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.

Step 4

Spoon peanut butter mixture over brownie batter; top with remaining brownie batter, and swirl together.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 45 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove from oven to a wire rack; sprinkle with marshmallows and peanuts.

Step 6

Prepare Chocolate Frosting, and drizzle over brownies. Cool completely.

Extremely mediocre for the amount of time and effort it took to make. It tasted okay, but wont be making again.

made for a tailgate party--several people said they were really rich but good. I felt they were ok--may have overbaked the brownie a bit so that might have made me not like them as much.
