Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 15 very large brownies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 8 oz 50% dark chocolate* chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

  2. Lina 9x13x2 inch pan with parchment paper, or line with aluminum foil and lightly grease. Ensure there's an overhang over the sides - this makes it easier to lift the brownies out.

  3. Add the butter, chopped chocolate and peanut butter to a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute on medium power (not high), remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat the process until almost melted, then stir until smooth.

  4. In a separate bowl beat together the eggs and sugar until glossy and lighter in color (about 2 minutes).

  5. Whisk the egg mixture into the melted peanut butter & chocolate mixture a little at a time.

  6. Carefully fold the cocoa powder, flour & salt into the batter using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. 

  7. Fold in the peanut butter chips.

  8. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-35 minutes - or until the top looks set and an inserted toothpick comes out clean or with a few damp crumbs. The middle of the pan shouldn't wobble if you nudge the pan.

  9. Cool fully (about 3-4 hours) before cutting into squares with a thin, sharp knife. 

Recipe Notes

*Store brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. Brownies freeze well, then thaw overnight in the fridge.
