Everyone is sure to go crazy for brownies filled with swirls of peanut butter and pretzels and topped with a chocolate glaze. They’re fun and indulgent, and will definitely disappear fast! Plus, starting with Betty Crocker brownie mix means you can enjoy over-the-top brownies without an excessive amount of effort. All the flavor without all the fuss! Now that’s my kind of dessert. 

To make these brownies you’ll need a Betty Crocker dark chocolate brownie mix, water, butter, eggs, smooth peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and semi-sweet chocolate chips. (You’ll find the exact list of ingredients and measurements in the recipe below!)

To begin, combine the mix, water, and butter, and then add each egg one at a time. Break up half of the pretzels and stir them into the batter.

Spread half of the brownie batter into a square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Then make the peanut butter filling by stirring together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract until smooth.

Drop the peanut butter filling by heaping spoonfuls onto the brownie batter-lined pan. Next, drop the remaining brownie batter in between the peanut butter dollops.

Use a knife to swirl the brownie batter and peanut butter filling together. It doesn’t have to be perfect—it’s okay if it’s a little messy.

Top the brownies with the remaining pretzels and bake until brownies are set, about 30 minutes.

Let the brownies cool slightly, then finish off with a chocolate glaze. To make the glaze, simply microwave chocolate chips with a little butter until melted. Drizzle the glaze over the brownies, and then let set before slicing.
