super moist peanut butter fudge brownies

these brownies are soooooooo good. they are rich and soft. make em!

batter ingredients:
1 ½ c. sugar
½ c. butter (1 stick) softened
½ c. oil
1 T. vanilla
3 eggs
1 ¼ c. flour
¾ c. cocoa powder
¾ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 c. peanut butter chips (or choc chips)

filling ingredients:1 c. creamy peanut butter
¼ c. vegetable oil
¼ c. sugar
2 T. flour
2 eggs
½ tsp vanilla

frosting:2 (1-oz) bars unsweetened or semi-sweet chocolate (I would recommend semi-sweet)
3 T. creamy peanut butter
1 ½ c. powdered sugar
¼ c. water
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
batter: preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x13-inch pan. in large bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. add oil and vanilla. add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. in a small bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt - blend well. while beating, gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture – mix well. fold in chips. evenly spread ½ batter into pan.

filling: in a small bowl cream together peanut butter and oil. add sugar and flour – blend well. add eggs and vanilla – beat until smooth. carefully spread filling evenly over batter in pan. top filling with remaining ½ batter and spread evenly. gently cut through layers to create marble effect throughout brownies. bake for 30 minutes – do NOT over bake.

frosting: while baking, in a medium saucepan, melt chocolate and peanut butter over LOW heat, stirring constantly. remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients – mix until smooth. if frosting is too thick, add 1-3 T. water. spread frosting over brownies immediately after baking. cool in pan 2-3 hours before serving. preparation time: 30 minutes prep, 30 minutes bake
