  • 1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch-square baking pan.

PLACE semi-sweet morsels and butter in large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until mixture is melted. Add brown sugar and peanut butter to chocolate mixture; beat on medium speed for 1 minute or until well mixed. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually stir in flour. Stir in white and peanut butter & milk chocolate morsels. Spread into prepared pan. Drop jam by spoonfuls onto batter. Swirl with a knife.

BAKE for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out still slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.

I doubled the batch for a memorial of a friend. They all disappeared in no time at all. They came out just superb. All my co-workers are going to love these. I will be making these a lot. Very easy.

Class loved them

I made these for my grandkids to take to school for a treat when it was my birthday. The classes love it when Carolynn and Brandon's Grandma bakes. The flavors were great together and they were easy to make and transport to school.

I made these for my son's 1st grade Valentine's Day party, and the kids loved them! His teacher hit the nail on the head when she said, "Chocolate, peanut butter, and jelly all together - what more could a kid ask for?" She even asked me for the recipe so she could make them at home. Thanks, Jim!

Chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly Brownies

by S. Sandy , BUFORD, GA on Feb. 2005

I love brownies, but was a little hesitant on making these at first. I am so glad I tried them, they were great. The combination of chocolate with peanut butter and jelly is a winning combination. Very easy, but everyone thought they were a gourmet dessert. I will definitely make these again.

A New Favorite

These brownies are a new favorite at our local acoustic society. The flavors are a delicious change from chocolate and chocolate with nuts.

Great Taste Mixture

These are packed with yummy tastes. My nieces love these! Thanks for sharing! One alternative though is to add hot fudge instead of jelly, very delightful!
