3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 boxed brownie mix with chocolate syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom only of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan; set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat together the sugar, peanut butter, flour, and eggs for a couple of minutes or until blended. Set bowl aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the brownie mix, syrup, water, canola oil, and eggs. Stir until well blended. Spread the brownie mixture onto the bottom of the prepared pan. Drop the peanut butter mixture onto the batter by the tablespoonfuls. Swirl a knife through the batters.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, frost by adding 1/3 cup peanut butter and approximately 2 teaspoons of milk to a can of vanilla frosting. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts if desired.
