  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, and milk until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, 2 cups white sugar, and vanilla. Mix in the remaining 3 eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; mix into the batter. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Remove 1 cup of the chocolate batter. Spread the remaining batter into the prepared pan. Spread the peanut butter filling over the top. Drop the reserved chocolate batter by teaspoonful over the filling. Using a knife, gently swirl through the top layers for a marbled effect.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out almost clean. Cool completely, then cut into bars.

These are delicious. Took about an hour in the oven to set, though. Also, I had trouble with the "swirling" - I couldn't get the layers to swirl together because I didn't drop chocolate onto the...

REALLY good brownies. I used 1 cup of peanut butter. Also put in an additional 1/4 cup of flour and cut back the butter by 1/4 stick. They were perfect!

I must admit that when these first came out of the oven and even after they had cooled for about an hour I was not impressed-I am a die-hard brownie fan too. About 5 hours later when I thought ...

These are incredible brownies! I used Neufchatel cheese instead of cream cheese for the peanut butter layer, and it worked very well. I also skipped the chocolate chips...in my opinion, they wou...

This recipe rocks! As-is, no subsitutions of modifications required! Cut them small, because they are rich, moist, chewy- and will go FAST! I think that ALLY99 possibly ran into technical diffic...
