I saw this recipe ages ago on BBC Good Food, one of my favourite websites and then I saw it on chocolate teapot's blog and knew I just had to make it. I love brownies and peanut butter so this was a definite winner for me. I'm not sure if I overbaked them as they were a little on the dry side for me but still delicious (I prefer my brownies on the gooey side) I also added a whole layer of peanut butter instead of drizzling as suggested!
225g crunchy peanut butter (I used 175g for the batter & 280g for the topping)
200g dark chocolate (reserve 50g for drizzling)
250g light brown sugar
100g self raising flour
- Preheat oven to 180C.
- Set aside 50g of peanut butter and chocolate each.
- Gently melt the remaining peanut butter, chocolate and sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally.
- Turn off the heat and beat in the eggs one at a time.
- Stir in flour and scrape into baking tray.
- Melt reserved peanut butter until runny and drizzle over the brownies (or if you are like me then add a whole layer of peanut butter)
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until it has a crust but the middle still seems slightly undercooked.
- Melt reserved (50g) chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
