Chocolate & Peanut Butter Brownies
*makes 24 brownies*

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 oz semisweet chocolate, melted
1 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 350F. In medium bowl, with wire whisk, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
2) In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter until smooth, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth. Beat in flour mixture just until combined (dough will be stiff).
3) Place one-third of dough (about 1 3/4 cups) in another large bowl. Stir in melted semisweet and unsweetened chocolates until blended. Fold in 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces.
4) Pat half of remaining peanut-butter dough into ungreased 13" by 9" baking pan. In random pattern, drop chocolate dough and remaining peanut-butter dough on top of peanut-butter layer; pat down with hand. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate pieces.
5) Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pan on rack.
6) When cool, cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 6 pieces.
