instructions
Make the batter
1 Make the batter

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square (or 11-inch by 6-inch) baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate chips and butter. Working in 30 second increments, microwave on high, stirring in between, until melted and combined. Add the powdered sugar, egg, 2 tablespoons of neutral oil (or olive oil), and a pinch of salt; whisk to combine. Gently fold in the flour. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer (the batter will be thick).

Top the batter
2 Top the batter

In a bowl, combine the peanut butter spread, mascarpone, and 2 teaspoons of warm water. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cherry spread and 1 teaspoon of warm water. Use a spoon to make small dollops of the peanut-mascarpone mixture all over the brownie batter. Repeat with the cherry spread mixture in the open spaces. Using a butter knife, swirl the mixtures through the brownie batter and each other, creating a marbled look.

Bake the brownies & serve your dish
3 Bake the brownies & serve your dish

Bake the brownies 25 to 29 minutes, or until set and cooked through (a toothpick inserted into the middle should come out with a few moist crumbs). Remove from the oven and let stand at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
