crunchy, chocolatey peanut butter brownies

31 Jul

so yum!

So last week I came into work and was greeted by one of my lovely colleagues. She was holding a cake tin…  that meant good news! Inside were some of the yummiest brownies I have ever eaten and that’s something coming from someone who doesn’t even like peanut butter. I knew I had to get the recipe off her and share it on here. So without further ado here’s how you make the most delicious peanut butter brownies:

You will need:

  • 225g crunchy peanut butter
  • 200g bar dark chocolate , broken into pieces
  • 280g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour

How you do it:

  1. Set aside 50g each of the peanut butter and chocolate. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Gently melt remaining peanut butter, chocolate and all the sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has just about melted. Turn off heat and use a wooden spoon to beat in the eggs one by one. Stir in the flour and scrape into the tin.
  2. Melt reserved peanut butter in the microwave on High for 45 secs, or in a pan, until runny, then drizzle over the brownie. Bake for 30-35 mins until it has a crust, but the middle still seems slightly uncooked.
  3. Melt reserved chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares.


Even if the thought of peanut butter makes you feel queasy you have to try these (unless of course you are allergic!) they seriously exceeded my expectations. I’m yet to make my own batch but they are high on my priority list!
