Build Season Recipes: Strategy Brownies

These delicious and nutritious brownies have powered many Friday night picklist meetings on multiple teams, and more often than not have led to regional and divisional victories. This past weekend in San Diego was no different.

Strategy Brownies

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1-1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1-1/3 cup flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and milk; beat. Mix in flour and baking powder. Divide batter in half. In one half, mix in peanut butter and peanut butter chips. In the other half, mix in chocolate chips and cocoa. Place alternate spoonfuls of batter into a 9-inch square pan, creating a checkerboard pattern. Swirl a knife through batter to create a marble effect. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out with fudgey crumbs.
