Peanut Butter-Cream Cheese Brownies

This recipe is a variation on my basic brownie recipe and is sure to please anyone who tastes it! There are a lot of huge peanut butter fans in my family, so this dessert is requested pretty frequently. The magical combination of peanut butter and chocolate makes these brownies extra special, and the cream cheese just takes it up another notch to dessert perfection. Once you've mastered the simple brownie recipe, adding the peanut butter cream cheese topping is a quick and easy step that you will be glad you took!
Basic brownie recipe:

Ingredients for topping:
1 bar of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon milk

Whip topping ingredients with a hand mixer then spoon over uncooked brownie batter. Using a table knife, swirl the topping into the brownie batter. Bake 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Serving suggestion:
Microwave a brownie for 10-15 seconds then top with vanilla ice cream. Unbeatable!
