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.

I've made these twice. I've used 2 different types of peanut butter, but i find it doesn't really melt, but is more of a paste. Even so, they come out really well. The second time, i used a mixture of milk and dark chocolate and it's still fine.

It turns out quite 'crisp' on the outside and soft in the middle. So it's a good recipe for slicing into neat squares and transporting.

I used a slightly smaller tin and baked for 40 minutes for thick gooey brownies - an absolutely brilliant recipe, will use time and time again.

delicious - however only added 230g of sugar, and found that sweet enough (however peanut butter used already had sugar in it) really quick and easy to make! went down really well with family!

Disaster, as soon as I added the egg it all frothed up and scrambled it....a disgusting mess and waste of chocolate and peanut butter...very disappointed :-(

Easy to make and very tasty. Even my husband who doesn't like peanuts wolfed them down! Cooked for just under 30 mins and would prob cook even less next time for added goo!

Totally scrummy! Only cooked for 30 minutes but I think that was too long. They were delightfully chewy and tasty but getting towards burnt around the edges. Will definitely make again but cook for 20-25 mins next time. Freezing half of them so I don't demolish them all tomorrow!

I've made these once and they were delicious, dark chocolate and PB is such a yummy combination!

Make sure you use good quality peanut butter, I had a pot of value PB and it wasn't nutty or salty enough and the taste was lost to the chocolate!

I'm making these again today but this time I'm putting half the brownie mixture in the tin then a layer of melted PB then the rest of the brownie mixture followed by more melted PB and drizzled chocolate on top :o)

Yummy!!!!! I had to bake mine for 40 minutes (on 160C) as the centre was still completely raw. At the end of the 40 minutes the centre was perfect, but the outside slightly crusty and overcooked. Anybody else had this problem? Suggestions?

very moreish so watch out! I used unrefined brown sugar (normally used for coffees) and worked just as well and agree with timings -25 minutes was still too long so 20 mins would have been just right!
