Cashew Swirl Brownies

Today I felt like making brownies, but I felt like doing something a little different. I had some cashew butter in my pantry that I needed to use…and this definitely put it to good use!

In a large saucepan, melt 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 stick of butter over very low heat.

When it is melted, remove the pan from the heat, and allow it to cool a bit.

When it is just barely warm, stir in 3/4 cup each of brown sugar and granulated sugar.

In a dish, lightly whisk 4 eggs, then whisk them into the chocolate mixture.

Next, whisk in 1 cup of flour.

And finally, whisk in a teaspoon of vanilla and a half teaspoon of salt.

Over the top, sprinkle a half cup of coarsely chopped cashews.

Last, take a butter knife, and run it through the batter, swirling the cashew butter all over the top.
