Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

This recipe ain’t for the light hearted…. diet conscious…. or diabetic.

This is a full on chocolate peanut butter brownie. Just look at the recipe, 200g of chocolate here, 200g butter there…. oh and 500g of peanut butter!!! That’s more than a small jar people.

This recipe does come from a USA recipe in an issue of  SBS’s Feast Magazine, so I should have been expecting it was going to be full blown sugar explosion. I didn’t even use all the peanut butter mixture, let alone drizzle it on top to serve. I have enough to make another batch of brownies, which I might just do, but with a very easy chocolate cake recipe I make in the Thermomix.

Needless to say, it was moreish, and could possibly be made better by using crunchy peanut butter. Don’t eat these all by yourself, I do recommend you share ;)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Feast Magazine

200g dark chocolate, chopped
200g undated butter, chopped, at room temperature
4 eggs, lightly beaten
295g caster sugar
100g plain flour
Melted chocolate and ice cream to serve

Peanut Butter Mixture
500g peanut butter
100g unsalted butter
55g icing sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Fill a small saucepan one-third full with water and bring to a gentle simmer. Place the chocolate and butter in a small heatproof bowl, place over pan and stir until chocolate is melted (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Allow to cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs and sugar for 4 mins or until thick and pale. Stir in chocolate mixture, flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Pour mixture into a greased, lined, deep 20cm square cake pan. Set aside to slightly thicken.

3. Meanwhile, to make peanut butter mixture, heat all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat for 45 sec or until just starting to soften. Stir to combine. Reserve one-third of the mixture to serve. Drop spoonfuls of remaining peanut butter mixture into chocolate mixture and lightly swirl with a skewer or knife. Bake for 1 hour or until just firm to touch. Cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. Cut into squares and serve topped with warmed reserve peanut butter mixture and melted chocolate, with ice-cream on the side. Store in an airtight container in single layers separated by baking paper for up to a week.

    Oh dear heavens this is the recipe of my soul. Except I could never make it, because I would eat the entire leftover peanut butter mixture in one sitting. I wish I were joking, but I’ve been eating bowls of straight peanut butter mixed with caramel top n fill lately…

    P.S. Crunchy peanut butter is the only kind that should exist.

  10. Oh hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!
