Peanut Butter Filling:
6 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk

Brownie Batter:
1 cup butter -- melted
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch pan.

Prepare peanut butter filling: beat first 5 ingredients (cream cheese through milk) together; set aside.

In another bowl stir together butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add eggs and beat. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Add to the batter; beat well. Stir in chocolate chips. Remove 1 cup of batter and set aside. Pour remaining batter into pan. Spread peanut butter filling over the top. Drop spoonfuls of reserved batter over the filling. Using a knife, gently swirl through the top layers for a marbled effect.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. Cool and cut into squares.
