Peanut Butter Chcolate Brownies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies
From: Dottygumdrop

Melted butter, to grease
150g (6oz) dark or cooking chocolate, coarsely chopped
100g (4oz) butter, chopped
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, slightly warmed

1. Preheat oven to 160oC (325oF). Brush a 16cm x 26cm (6in x 10in) slab pan with melted butter to grease. Line base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking parchment, allowing sides to overhang.

2. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl with the sugar and peanuts and combine well.

3. Place the chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water (ensure the base of the bowl does not touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate and butter melt and the mixture is smooth.

4. Add the chocolate mixture and eggs to the dry mix and stir until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan. Spoon dollops of the warmed peanut butter over the brownie mixture and use a round-bladed knife to swirl through.

5. Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes or until crumbs cling to a skewer inserted into the centre. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving (Yeah, right!!!).

6. Eat until you feel sick!
