Dreams most definitely can come true. I dreamt of this ridiculously delicious concoction and now here it is. Yum!
- 180g salted butter, diced
- 150g good quality dark chocolate, chopped roughly
- 1.5 cups caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 100g dark chocolate (extra), chopped into chunks
- 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 180C
Grease and line a 23cm square slice tin. I find it easier to line the tin with extra baking paper so you have 2 handles on either side to pull the brownie out when it is cooked and cooled in the tin.
Combine the butter and dark chocolate in a small saucepan on a gentle low heat and stir until it has melted.
Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and whisk until combined.
Sift flours and cocoa together and add this to the mix and stir until just combined. Stir through additional dark chocolate and pour into your pre-prepared tin.
Spoon teaspoons of the peanut butter into the brownie mixture and swirl with a knife.
Bake in the oven for 35- 40 minutes, the brownie should still have have a slight wobble to it.
Allow the brownie to cool in the tin, then gently lift it out and cut into squares.
