60. Recipes // Peanut Butter & Chocolate Brownies

Last week, whilst browsing online, I stumbled across a recipe for peanut butter and chocolate brownies. My mouth watered instantly. My heart rate increased (as did my BMI, almost simultaneously) and I vowed that I would bake these. No matter what. 

I know this sounds very OTT but, seriously, peanut butter? chocolate? brownies? What's not to like?! Although it's an incredibly rich, indulgent and high in fat pudding, it's a delicious treat and goes down incredibly well (especially with ice-cream!)


For the Brownie:
150g milk chocolate,
100g self-raising flour,
280g sugar,
200g peanut butter,
3 medium eggs

For the topping:
50g milk chocolate,
50g peanut butter,
50g chocolate chips,
Dash of milk

Before starting: Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4 and grease a baking tray.

1. In a pan, on the hob, melt the sugar, milk chocolate and peanut butter until the sugar has almost (but not completely) dissolved,
2. Still in the pan, add the 3 eggs one-by-one and beat,
3. Pour the mixture evenly into the baking tray,
4. Melt the left-over peanut butter and drizzle on top of brownie,
5. Bake the brownie for 25-30 minutes or until cooked but still somewhat gooey,
6. Melt the left-over chocolate (whilst milk, if needs be) and drizzle on top of brownie,
7. Sprinkle chocolate chips (or anything you'd like!) over the top and serve, still warm.

Unfortunately, I didn't have any ice-cream to serve with mine but it was still delicious! 

Lots of Love,

  1. Oooh Becci that looks delicious and I'm not normally a brownie person.
    Maybe a few more photos next time? I'd love to see it being put together. Oooh, and a sprinkle of icing sugar on top?
    Personally I would serve this with running cream but then I can drink a whole glass of runny cream in one sitting. It's my weak spot.
    I hope you decide to do somne more sweet recipes because I will probably be drooling on my keyboard.

    1. Aww thank-you Samantha! At the moment I'm stuck taking photos with my phone, and I had the recipe on my phone so it was hard to do both at the same time! But I agree - next time, more PROCESS photos! :-) Mmm, with cream would also be amazing! xxx

    2. Ah yes I know what you mean. I take my photos mainly with my iPhone because I hate taking my camera into the kitchen as it normally comes out white with all the flour!
      Yes cream would be my first choice ;P But a light ice cream would be good too. Maybe some banana flavour?

    3. Mmmm, banana flavoured ice-cream would be incredible with these brownies! I'll bare that in mind for next time xxxx

  2. Becci, you are trying to give me diabetes!! These look amazing, why am I trying to be good at the moment?! xx
