Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies
Serves: 15
  • 200 g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 250 g butter, melted
  • 250 g powdered sugar
  • 400 g plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 350 g crunchy peanut butter
  • vanilla essence
  1. Heat up your oven at 170ºC/340ºF. In a large bowl mix together the flour, the sugar, the eggs and the butter. Add the cocoa powder and the dark chocolate continue mixing until smooth.
  2. Line a baking pan with baking paper, pour in the dough and level it.
  3. In a small bowl place the peanut butter. Add vanilla essence to taste and mix really well.
  4. Spoon the peanut butter mix on top of the chocolate dough. With a knife either level it or make swirls.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Do the toothpick test. Take a toothpick and poke the brownie. If the toothpick is dirty with dough when you take it out you need to leave the cake in the oven a little longer.
  6. When done, cut into pieces and slice.
