directions

Step 1

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, pressing it into the corners and up the sides; leave an overhang on 2 sides. Butter the foil and dust with flour. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the bittersweet chocolate and cook, stirring constantly, until mostly melted. Remove from the heat and continue to stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

Step 3

Add the granulated sugar, cocoa powder and salt to the saucepan and stir until combined. Add the eggs 1 at a time, stirring well after each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour and stir until incorporated.

Step 4

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread it to fill the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs, about 40 minutes.

Step 5

Let cool in the pan on a rack, about 30 minutes. Lift the brownies out of the pan using the foil and transfer to a cutting board to cool completely before frosting.

Step 6

Using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the confectioners’ sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Then beat in the peanut butter and cream cheese.

Step 7

Frost the top of the brownies. Add 1 teaspoon water to the jam in a small bowl and stir to combine. Dollop the jam evenly on top of the frosting and use a butter knife to gently swirl it in. Cut into squares and serve.
