chocolate peanut butter brownies

Bakers Corner sent me a big box of chocolate recently and we had a lot of fun baking with it. OK some of it didn’t make it into baked goods because it was just too good to eat. And I’m a big chocoholic.

But I did use some in my favourite brownie recipe. Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies. These are super fudgy and delicious. I know that you can find all sorts of brownie recipes these days but this is still my failproof never let me down brownie recipe that I’ve been making before I got married and had my family.

You’ll need 200g dark chocolate. We used a bag Nestle Bakers Choice Melts and it meant no breaking up of chocolate. For quality control purposes we did eat 3 buttons from the bag before adding to the saucepan

Add in 100g cubed unsalted butter and melt together. I did this in a small saucepan over a saucepan of boiling water. You can also melt it in a microwave safe bowl for 2 1/2 minutes on medium and stir it a few times in between.

Add in 1 cup of caster sugar and mix well. Add in 2 -3 generous scoops of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth) and mix well. Add in 2 eggs and stir gently. Then add in 2/3 cup sifted self raising flour. Gently fold the flour through making sure it’s all mixed in. Pour into a lined square/lamington tin. Baking a preheated 180C degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.

Leave to cool completely in the tin. Lift out of the tray by the paper and then slice with a clean knife.

Enjoy. You can find lots of chocolate creations or create and share your own with #bakerscorner #bakeityours

    Oh Corrie, what a delightful photo of Lawson. Such a handsome little man and looks like you.
    Recipe sounds yummo! Thank you.

  2. Yummy, your brownie recipe is my go-to and everyone loves it! I love peanut butter ao will be trying it out for sure!

    • Oh that’s good to hear. Peanut butter really is the best but never lasts long here as everyone is just a bit too generous with it on their toast!

  3. They sound delicious. My eldest is off to uni for the first time and I think a box of these would go down a treat with him and his new flatmates.

  4. What a great, simple recipe Corrie. I look forward to giving it a try soon. x

    Corrie I join you in the chocoholic line up, no matter how much I know about nutrition, chocolate remains as a staple.

  6. Thank you for the recipe, Corrie. It looks delicious! You had me at chocolate brownies + peanut butter. Perfect combination. Lawson looking very handsome.
