Rocky road brownie tart birthday cake

It was my niece’s birthday and she had flown down from her home near the Queensland border to catch up with her fav cousins (misses 7 and 9) and her nana. Naturally a cake was in order but the biggest decision of the moment was the nature of the cake. As the niece is a self-confessed a sweet tooth (her mum made her a cake that used 2 kilos of icing sugar!) a chocolate cake was in order but that didn’t really help – have you SEEN how many recipes for chocolate cake lurk on the web?

Chocolate peanut butter brownies – perfect for Christmas Day

11 Dec

Chocolate and peanut butter is always a winning combo and makes a perfect foil to all that fruit cake’n’pud traditionally offered around the Christmas table.

This easy-peasy brownie would also make a fab addition to any Christmas parties or festive barbecues.  You’ve probably got all six ingredients in your kitchen so why not make a pan of this right now? You will thank me later…

The recipe was found on BBC Good Food’s site, a fabulous place to while away the hours. I added some roasted, salted peanuts on top and boy did it make this sweet sing.

GATHER:

225g crunchy peanut butter

200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

280g soft light brown sugar

3 medium eggs

100g self-raising flour

handful roasted, salted peanuts

handful dark chocolate drops

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a 20cm pan with non-stick baking paper.

Melt peanut butter, chocolate and sugar in a pan over low heat, 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 then stir in the flour.

When everything is mixed in pour into tin, then dot the peanuts and dark chocolate drops on top.

Bake 25-30 minutes, until top is firm but inside still fudgy.

Cool and cut into squares.
