Chocolate Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

*This is a really easy, cheat of a semi-homemade recipe.

2 Boxes Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Coffee (leftover from the morning is fine)
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs (beaten)
Pinch of Salt
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter

In a large bowl mix brownie mix, water, coffee, vegetable oil, eggs, salt.  Grease a 13x9 baking dish (even if it's non stick) or line bottom and sides w/ parchment paper).  Pour in 1/2 the batter.  In a small bowl add chocolate chips and flour.  Stir to coat the chips in flour and sift.  Sprinkle chips around the 1st layer of batter.  Add the remaining 1/2 of batter.

Heat the peanut butter in a microwave for about 30 seconds.  Spoon peanut butter in vertical lines over the top of the brownie batter.  With a toothpick or skewer, vertically go in circles mixing the peanut butter and the brownie batter to form a circular design.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 40-45 minutes.  After 40 minutes keep checking center of brownies w/ a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.  Ovens vary so it may be a few more minutes.

Let cool at least 1/2 hour before you cut and serve.  They are pretty rich and fudgy so I usually cut into about 1 inch cubes.  Also good served with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
