Walnuts, cherries, dark chocolate chips. Brownie batter mix-ins can be just about anything your heart desires and taste buds crave. But simply throwing in a cup of nuts or candy pieces isn’t enough.

Adding creamy peanut butter, powdered peanut butter and peanut butter morsels creates a brownie that’s far from square and close to the best dessert you’ve ever devoured.
