Little Box Brownie: Brownies take two

Brownies take two

As promised Mr Whittaker's brownies recreated for all of you who are in parts of the world where you can't get his amazing chocolate. I have added extra peanut butter to the recipe as I found the original version didn't have a strong peanut butter taste, this version I went all out. Most peoples comments have been they taste like a snickers bar so mission accomplished I think. I haven't changed the recipe very much as it was so amazing to begin with, just extra peanutty.

Enjoy  xx

Peanut Brownies

200g butter 
2 cups sugar
200g dark chocolate  
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
4 eggs


50g butter
390g sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tbsp golden syrup 

1/2 cup of extra peanut butter to assemble 

Pre heat the oven to 180C
Place the butter, sugar, chocolate and peanut butter into a double boiler and heat on a medium heat until the ingredients have melted and combined.

Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the chocolate mixture and stir though. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Set aside

To make the caramel place the butter, condensed milk and golden syrup into a saucepan, and on a medium heat boil until the mixture becomes golden brown. Make sure you constantly stir otherwise it will stick to the bottom and burn.

To assemble, pour half of the brownie mixture into a lined 20x30cm tin. Then dollop on 2/3 of the caramel and the extra peanut butter. Pour over the remaining brownie mixture and dot over the rest of the caramel. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked.
