These brownies are anything but dry! Cream cheese and peanut butter swirled through the chocolate make a beautiful marbled effect.

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease one 20x30cm baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl beat cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg and milk until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix together melted butter, 2 cups white sugar and vanilla. Mix in the remaining 3 eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; mix into the batter. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Remove 1 cup of the chocolate batter. Spread the remaining batter into the prepared pan. Spread the peanut butter filling over the top. Drop the reserved chocolate batter by teaspoonful over the filling. Using a knife gently swirl through the top layers for a marbled effect.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the centre comes out almost clean. Cool completely then cut into bars.
