1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan 

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper, leaving some overhang to easily lift out the brownies later.

2. Prepare the Chocolate Batter 

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter and 1 cup of chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Let it cool slightly.

4. Incorporate Dry Ingredients 

Gradually add the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, stirring until fully combined. Then sift in 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

5. Make Peanut Butter Swirl 

In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/4 cup of peanut butter until smooth and easily pourable. Spoon dollops of peanut butter over the chocolate batter in the prepared pan.

6. Swirl the Batter 

Use a knife or a toothpick to gently swirl the peanut butter into the chocolate batter, creating a marbled effect. Don't overmix; you want distinct swirls.

7. Bake 

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be careful not to overbake, as you want the brownies to remain fudgy.

8. Cool and Serve 

Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes, then use the parchment paper overhang to lift them out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve. Enjoy your delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies!
