Chocolate Fudge Brownies (Peanut Butter Variation)

I bought a Nestle cookbook, and I've made this recipe two times in a row, upon Matthew's request.

1 2/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 Tbsp water
2 bars (2 ounces each) Unsweetened baking chocolate, broken into pieces
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
Peanut Butter topping:
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp milk


Heat sugar, butter & water in medium saucepan, just to boiling, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat.
Add baking chocolate, stirring until melted.
Transfer to mixing bowl.

Stir in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in vanilla.
Gradually stir in flour, baking soda & salt.
Pour into greased 9x13 baking pan.

Combine peanut butter topping ingredients in medium microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds.
Stir until smooth.
Spoon over top of chocolate batter, swirl with a spoon.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
