Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies

I made these brownies on a whim Friday because they looked so easy.  I haven't make any baked goods in FOREVER and wanted to make something for the fam even though I was tired from a long week.  They came together so quickly that it wasn't really a big deal to make them, and they were SO good, so much better than I thought they'd be, given how simple the recipe was!  (The base is similar to that Bombshell Brownies recipe that was floating around the internet a few years ago. But it's so much better with the additions of chopped Snickers bars and peanut butter.)  I only baked these for 25 minutes and they were perfectly moist and fudgy.
Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies
from Two Peas & their Pod

1 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped Snickers candy bars (4 regular-sized candy bars)
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined. Stir in Snickers candy bar chunks. Pour batter into prepared pan.

3. Drop dollops of peanut butter over the batter. Using a knife or skewer, swirl peanut butter into brownies. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (Mine were perfect in 25 minutes- 35 would have ruined them.  Check them early.)  Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into squares and serve.
