A few years back I worked with the best teaching team that ever existed. We always did great things for one another, solidifying that bond that made us great. I tried to make special treats for birthdays, and knowing that one of my coworkers loved a chocolate peanut butter combo, made this recipe for him. It was really good, fudge and moist, like a brownie topped with a gooey peanut butter topping. They were the delight f the birthday boy and got some very inappropriate responses out of another of our coworkers. I highly recommend this dessert for those desiring this kind of effect. Make sure you make it in a 9x13 pan, it will not cook properly otherwise. This is not like brownies that you can tweak in different sizes. Don't say I didn't warn you. This is a food network recipe. 
1 cup or 2 sticks unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan or dish. In a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt together the chocolate and the butter. Stir occasionally until smooth, remove from heat and let cool. In a large bowl beat together 2 eggs, sugar and vanilla. Mix in the chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the flour and salt until just combined. Spread mixture out in baking pan. In a medium bowl, Beat together the peanut butter, confectioner's sugar and 2 eggs until well combined. Drop tablespoons of peanut butter mixture into chocolate batter and swirl in with a table knife. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool before cutting into squares and serving.
