Kick a little fun into your average box of brownie mix! Chocolaty brownies with creamy peanut butter mixed right in. Baked up in your skillet for an easy and delicious dessert.
I can’t decide which is better- – -a sale on cake mix or a sale on brownie mix.
What do you think? It’s a puzzler. 🤔
My grocery store has been having sales on both lately. Of course, you have to buy 5 boxes to get the sale price. No problem! I stocked up and made a pan of peanut butter swirled brownies in my iron skillet. Delicious stuff.
- Box of brownie mix + ingredients called for on box
- Creamy peanut butter
- Mini chocolate chips
Brownie Mix: Any brand or variety ( milk chocolate, dark chocolate, etc) will work for these. You will need the package for a 9 x 13 pan or sometimes they are referred to as “family size”.
Can I make my brownies homemade instead? Of course! If you have a favorite brownie recipe that will fit into a 9 x 13 pan, use that instead.
Skillet: I baked ours up in my iron skillet. However, if you don’t have an iron skillet, a regular 9-10 inch skillet is fine. Just be sure it’s oven safe! See recipe card for my skillet.
How to Make:
- First, make your batter according to the box ( or recipe). Spoon half the batter into another bowl. Stir peanut butter into half the batter and leave the rest of the batter plain.
- Spoon both batters into skillet. Then, swirl it together lightly. You don’t have to mix it completely. Simply swirl and make sure the batter is evenly distributed in the skillet.
- Then, spoon dollops of more peanut butter on top. Again, swirl. Sprinkle it all with the mini chocolate chips.
