Ingredients

  • 225g crunchy peanut butter
  • 200g bar dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 280g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour

Method

  1. Set aside 50g each of the peanut butter and chocolate. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Gently melt remaining peanut butter, chocolate and all the sugar in a pan, 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. Stir in the flour and scrape into the tin.

  2. Melt reserved peanut butter in the microwave on High for 45 secs, or in a pan, until runny, then drizzle over the brownie. Bake for 30-35 mins until it has a crust, but the middle still seems slightly uncooked.

  3. Melt reserved chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares.

Amazing, went almost just after made it. Only used 230g of soft brown sugar and I used smooth peanut butter. Cooked for 32 mins in a preheated fan oven at 160degrees.

I think I needed an oilier peanut butter than sunpat it wasn't really melting too well in the bowl . I only baked for 20 minutes but they still came out quite dry (still edible) maybe I will use meridien peanut butter next time and more chocolate

I made these yesterday but I think they are quite dry/cakey rather than fudgey type brownies ... Maybe it's the sunpat peanut butter I used it wasn't very easy to melt and so I had to add some almond butter . Also I only baked them for 20 minutes but they still seemed a tad over cooked. Any tips on what to do next time ?

They look delicious! I would use organic peanut butter as it has such a great texture and is much better for you. Check out my blog!

Wow, love love LOVE these! I had some mishaps making these, namely a malfunctioning oven, which meant I had to leave the raw brownie mix sitting in the fridge for a day and a half before I could cook it. But, never the whatever, the end result was a delight. My OH and I decided we couldn't eat all 16 brownies ourselves before they'd spoil and they are too good to waste on colleagues so I double wrapped and packed them in twos and tucked them away in the freezer for another day. Hooray!

So, thanks for all the tips. I melted the PB and chocolate over a pan of water with a squirt of golden syrup to get it all moving. I Also beat the eggs and sugar (only 200g) separately and combined with the liquid choc PB mixture. Also, i melted the remaining PB in a plastic bag, and snipped the corner off. This allowed me to pipe the melted PB over the top and feather it into the choc mix. Baked for 30 mins, it was perfect PS. I have made this recipe so many times now. It has become a complete favourite. Refinements include using crunchy PB IN the mix, and smooth pb for the feathered topping. 200g of sugar is definitely plenty and doesn't harm the flavour or texture at all. 30 minutes baking in a lined standard 20cm square tin does the trick. Do try this recipe, if you like peanut butter, chocolate and squidginess, you won't regret it!
