On My Hearth: Brownies with a Twist

Beren's girls are here for part of the weekend, heading home tomorrow morning so they can spend Mothers Day with their mom. His eldest is sick with a nasty cold and doesn't have much of an appetite, has been sipping chicken soup and strawberry smoothies today but tonight I thought I'd make her a treat. Along with macaroni & cheese (to get some calories and protein in her system), I'm going to bake these tasty-sounding brownies. Should there be leftovers I'll be taking them to Kali's house tomorrow morning for our Mothers Day brunch!

Brownies with a Twist (cinnamon applesauce)

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Recipe Yield: 20


· 1 pkg Duncan Hines Chocolate Lover's Double Fudge Brownie Mix
· 2 single-size serving cups cinnamon applesauce
· 3 eggs
· 2 Tbsp. water
· 1/4 c. peanut butter


1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9'x12' pan with cooking spray.
2: Mix brownie mix, eggs, applesauce, and water together until mix is moist.
3: Melt peanut butter in microwave for 30 seconds
4: Pour melted peanut butter on top of brownie mix in four lines and run a knife through to swirl into the batter.
5: Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
