Kraft Kitchens Tips

The ever-popular flavor combination of peanut butter and chocolate is the perfect topping for this sweet crowd-pleasing treat.
Prepare as directed, using one of the following options: Super Chunk Brownies: Stir additional 8 oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped, into the brownie batter before pouring into prepared pan and baking as directed. Cake-Like Brownies: Prepare as directed, adding 1/2 cup milk along with the eggs and increasing the flour to 1-1/2 cups. Extra-Thick Brownies: Prepare as directed, substituting 9-inch square pan for the 13x9-inch pan and increasing the baking time to 50 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Continue as directed. Makes 16 servings. Extra-Fudgy Brownies: Prepare as directed, using 4 eggs.
Chopping the semi-sweet chocolate helps it to melt more quickly over the hot brownies. If the chocolate-peanut butter mixture does not swirl easily, place the topped brownies back in the turned off (but still warm) oven for 3 min. then swirl with spoon as directed.
