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.
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.
