PEANUT BUTTER BROWNIES.
In an attempt to cure my boredom I made brownies. Everybody loves brownies however, these aren’t the ordinary chocolate type… they are peanut butter!
Like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups… but better.
It’s the delicious combination of salty and sweet that makes these brownies so irresistible. The peanut butter is marbled in the chocolate mixture, adding texture and flavour to each mouthful. Just for something different I used a round cutter to make circle brownies… then again it’s not about what shape they are, it’s all about the taste and these taste amazing!
Make some… NOW. (Happy Friday!)
Ingredients (serves 12)
Melted butter, to grease
150g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
100g butter, chopped
215g (1 cup) caster sugar
75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
2 tbs cocoa powder
200g (3/4 cup) crunchy peanut butter
- Preheat oven to 160°C. Brush a 16 x 26cm (base measurement) slab pan with melted butter to grease. Line base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.
- Place the chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
- Combine the sugar, flour and cocoa powder in a bowl. Add chocolate mixture and eggs and stir until just combined. Pour into prepared pan. Spoon peanut butter over brownie mixture and use a round-bladed knife to create swirls.
- Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes or until crumbs cling to a skewer inserted into the centre. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.
