Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

The Super Bowl may be savory snacks for many people (including my husband) but when I think parties, I think sweet desserts.

Of our Super Bowl menu, the only thing I really wanted was brownies.  Yes, a big old pan of chocolate brownies.

Now, when it comes to brownies I get kind of lazy.  For some reason they seem like a lot of effort to make from scratch. Even with the extra effort I still normally use my go to brownie recipe.  However, brownie mixes happened to be $1 at the grocery store this week. I sat there staring the boxes down thinking how could I not buy some.

Thus, our Super Bowl brownies came from a box mix.  It was easy, simple, and $1.  Feel free to use any brownie recipe though. The peanut butter swirl was just a fun add on as were the chocolate chips.  I figured if I was going to go with a box mix at least I could add some delicious extras.
