JOBBIE Peanut Butter Brownies

Hey hey! We’re making brownies today!
And not just any brownies. Peanut butter brownies…oh YESSSS. If you could pick my two favorite flavors in the world and bring them together, you would have peanut butter and dark chocolate…and these peanut butter brownies would be the result.
Fudgy brownies are moist, dense and gooey, with almost the texture of fudge, but not quite as compact. They are truly decadent and rich in every bite. With freezing the batter before baking, not only make peanut butter stuffed in brownies easily, but also yield a super fudgy texture while you can reduce a big amount of sugar as fudgy brownies usually require a high ratio of sugar.

- Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a square cake pan (20 cm x 20 cm) with baking paper, leaving an overhang.

- Add plain flour, cocoa powder, salt and dark chocolate chips, mix well with spatula. Pour half of batter in lined pan, smoothen with spatula.
- Mix peanut butter well and scoop teaspoon by teaspoon on batter to form a layer of peanut butter. Freeze for 20 minutes, then cover with remaining batter.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes (upper rack) or until the centre of brownies is just set to the touch. Allow brownies to cool for 30 minutes before slicing and serve.
- Always preheat your oven before baking. The baking time and temperature illustrated here are general guidelines. Make necessary adjustments on the time and temperature to suit your oven.
