Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Brownies

These thick fudge-like brownies are made extra special and rich with the addition of an easy peanut butter filling!

When will I ever have enough peanut butter/chocolate recipes? I already know the answer is ‘never’. 
     With Christmas rolling around, I am in need of a variety of treats. I have to make a lot of different cookies and cakes and brownies and whatever else is worth baking. And who is going to complain if they happen to receive a holiday tin of treats that include some thick fudgy brownies filled with a sweet peanut butter filling? 
     Usually it’s a toss-up between dutch-processed or regular unsweetened cocoa powder for me when it comes to brownie recipes. Ultimately, I went with this unsweetened cocoa powder. Why? Because I looked in my pantry, and I seem to have an overabundance of unsweetened cocoa powder! 
     To make these extra chocolatey, I decided that I needed some chocolate chips: milk chocolate chips. This is because I love the classic combo of peanut butter and milk chocolate. 
     For the peanut butter filling, I wanted to make it creamy and thick. So naturally, I found sweetened condensed milk to be the perfect element! Peanut buttersweetened condensed milk and one egg… very easy and yummy.
     So, I layered it with half brownie, all of the filling, then topped with the remaining brownie batter. This was stuffed into a 9 inch square pan, so these will be really thick. (You may see ‘pan-stuffing’ as a theme with a lot of my recipes…).
     These turned out to be super rich, chocolatey and fudgy. The peanut butter middle was substantial and very thick too; just how I had pictured it! I cut these into 9 squares, and I can’t believe I finished that whole piece! If you’re anything like me and like the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate, then you will definitely need to make these!
