Preheat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 9-by-9-by-2-inch square pan. In a mixing bowl, combine 2/3 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 packed cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of softened butter, 2 tablespoons of milk and two eggs. Stir in 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Divide the batter into two separate bowls.

Stir 1/4 cup of peanut butter and 1/3 cup of peanut butter chips into one of the batters, and stir 1/3 cup of baking cocoa powder and 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips into the other batter. Spoon the batters checkerboard-style into the pan, alternating the batters across 16 mounds. Use a knife to gently swirl through the batters, creating a marbled formation.

Set the pan in the oven, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out dry. Allow the brownies to cool completely for about one hour before slicing.
