Trick or Treat?

Whether you're planning to see a lot of Halloween  ghosts and witches or opt for a   a quiet evening at home with the family, I've found the perfect treat  for the peanut butter and chocolate sweet eaters in your family!
Double Peanut Butter Paisley Brownies recipe can be found  on the Hershey  Reese's Peanut Butter Chips package.  I'm convinced that when you top this  warm brownie with a dip of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup, it's pretty much a perfect dessert choice. 

Double Peanut Butter Paisley Brownies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter,softened
1/4 cup Reese's Creamy Peanut Butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups (10oz pkg) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
1/2 cup Hershey's Chocolate Syrup

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9x2 inch pan.
Beat butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat well. Add eggs,one at a time,beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla.
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; mix into peanut butter mixture,blending well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Spread half of batter in prepared pan, spoon syrup over top. Carefully top with remaining batter;swirl with metal spatula or knife for marbled effect.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan or wire rack. Cut into squares. Yield: 36 brownies

  1. Ahhhh. That looks good. I'm making the Dairy Mom approved Pumpkin Squares tonight from the cards we got at AWBU! Found it in my messy desk last night while cleaning before my mom comes to visit this weekend.

  2. I love surprises that I find on my messy desk,too! Enjoy those Pumpkin Squares-it's a favorite at my house.

  3. My peanut butter loving oldest daughter would LOVE this. Maybe I'll send this recipe with her to make at Mimi's next time she goes without little sis.
