Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownies

I found this recipe in a Good Housekeeping brownie book and made it on impulse.  It was delicious!  If you eat it while it's warm the gooey chocolate deliciousness requires a glass of milk.  This is definitely a must try.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 squares (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate, melted
1 square (1 ounce) unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)

Fresh out of the oven!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Either line a 13"x9" baking pan with foil or very lightly grease with cooking spray.  In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.
2. In a large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter until smooth, about 2 minutes.  Reduce speed to low.
3. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth.  Beat in flour mixture just until combined (dough will be stiff).
4.  Place one-third of the dough (about 1 3/4 cups) in another large bowl.  Stir in melted semisweet and unsweetened chocolates until blended.  Fold in 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips.
5. Pat half of remaining peanut-butter dough into prepared baking pan to form a thin layer at the bottom.  In a random pattern, drop chocolate dough and remaining peanut-butter dough on top of peanut-butter layer; pat down with hand.  Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
6. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes.  Cool in pan on rack.

** Although the recipe doesn't call for it, I mixed in extra chocolate chips to the regular peanut-butter dough.
**Be sure to adjust cooking time based on type of pan used!
