I’ve long wondered what peanut butter brownies taste like, and now I know. These are a doddle to make – done and dusted in under 45 mins. Not bad for a work night when you’ve run out of cake and need a chocolate hit quick stat! They’re very rich so eat is small pieces! The original recipe is here but I’ve tweaked the method, mainly because I didn’t read it properly but they don’t seem to have suffered for it…
For 16 squares you need
- 225g peanut butter
- 200g plain chocolate
- 280g light soft brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 100g plain flour
Gently heat the chocolate, peanut butter and sugar in a pan until gloopy.
Beat in the eggs one at a time then add the flour. Scrape into a lined brownie tin and bake at 175 degrees for 25-30 mins. You want a serious amount of goo left in the middle once cooked as they’ll firm up on cooling.
Cut into 16 squares and devour. They’re especially nice served warm with raspberry sorbet.
