The Ultimate Peanut Butter Brownie Recipe

Recipe, Sweet Treat, Brownies,
I am so excited to be sharing this post this evening – hand on heart, these will be the best brownies you’ve ever tasted! The peanut butter makes them, but obviously you can omit it – they will still be ridiculously rich and gooey. I made these for the first time for my birthday, to take into work and they were very well received. I need to make them again! The image above is the recipe I tried the previous year – this one is miles better, so good I forgot to take a photo.

This recipe makes 24.

Ingredients
·         200g dark chocolate
·         100g softened unsalted butter
·         250g caster sugar
·         4 eggs
·         1 tsp vanilla essence
·         60g plain flour
·         60g cocoa powder
·         3 tsp crunch peanut butter

Method
·         Preheat the oven to gas mark 5
·         Break up the dark chocolate and melt in a bain marie. Remove and leave to cool
·         Combine the butter and sugar in a bowl, mixing until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla essence
·         Spoon in the melted chocolate and stir. Add the flour and cocoa powder, combine
·         Spoon the mixture into a lined or greased tin (I used two small loaf tins) and spread evenly
·         Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds and pour on the top, swirling into the mixture with a palate knife
·         Cook for 25 minutes, or until firm to the touch. The chocolate will continue to cook, even when out of the oven, so don’t worry if they are a bit fudgy
·         Leave to cool on a wire rack, before cutting into squares

These brownies will last for three-four days in an airtight container, but I don’t think anyone could keep them that long!

Please let me know if you try this, or any of my other recipes.

Love, Lucy xx

  1. They look and sound SO good. I hate peanut butter so I'd swap that for salted caramel but either way they sound ace! X
