Original Toll House Peanut Butter Brownies (1980)

  • 12-oz package peanut butter morsels
  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • 2-1/2 tspns baking powder
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 6-oz package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Over hot (not boiling) water, melt 1 cup peanut butter morsels; stir until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside.  

In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract; beat until creamy.  Stir in melted peanut butter morsels.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture.  Stir in semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Spread evenly into a well-greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.  Bake 30 minutes.  Remove from oven, and immediately sprinkle top with remaining 1 cup peanut butter morsels.  Let stand about 5 minutes until morsels become shiny and soft.  Spread morsels evenly over top of brownies.  Cool completely.  Cut into 2-inch squares.  Makes 35 squares.
