1. Peanut Butter Brownie

Ingredients:

225 grams of crunchy peanut butter

200g bar of dark chocolate, divided into pieces

280 grams of soft light brown sugar

3 medium eggs

100 grams of self-raising flour

Method:

Set 50g each of peanut butter and chocolate aside. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Slowly melt the remaining peanut butter, chocolate and all the sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer the mixture to a bowl to cool slightly. Turn off the heat and beat in the eggs one at a time using a wooden spoon. Stir in the batter and scrape into the tin.

Melt the reserved peanut butter in the microwave for 45 seconds or until melted in the pan, then drizzle over the brownies. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the crust is set, but the center still seems a little undercooked. Melt the reserved chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
