How to Make Cheesecake Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies:

To make the peanut butter cheesecake brownies, simply whip together your box brownie mix as directed and prepare your peanut butter cheesecake swirl in a separate bowl. Once you’ve made both your mixtures,  pour all but 1/2 cup of brownie mixture into a greased 9×13 glass baking dish.

Next add your peanut butter cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie batter and spread evenly. Lastly, top with the remaining brownie batter and get to swirling!

To create a beautiful marbled effect, simply take a knife and draw vertical lines across your batter, followed by horizontal lines. If you want it even more mixed up, you can also do small swirling motions to give it a super pretty effect.

Below is what it looks like before baking. See the long vertical lines?

      Yes, you can. You’ll just have to add baking soda and salt too. 🙂
