Makes: about 12

Prep time: approx 30 minutes, cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

For the chocolate brownie mix:

100g dark chocolate, chopped or broken into pieces
100g butter
175g sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs, beaten
4tbs milk
175g plain flour, sifted
½ tsp baking powder

For the peanut butter swirl:

50g butter
150g Duerr’s Peanut Butter (we used Smooth)
100g icing sugar
1tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/Gas 4
  2. Line a 20 x 20cm baking tin with non-stick paper
  3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a large bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water. Stir in the sugar and vanilla, then the eggs and milk
  4. Add the flour and baking powder and set aside while you make the peanut butter swirl
  5. Melt the butter in a pan then add the peanut butter and vanilla. Stir in the icing sugar
  6. Spread half of the chocolate mix into the tin then place spoonfuls of the peanut butter mixture over the top, well spaced out. Use about half of this mixture. Add the rest of the chocolate mixture then dollop on the remaining peanut mixture. Use the back of a knife to swirl the two mixes together without mixing them together
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until only just set then lift out and leave to cool in the tin. Transfer to a board and cut into squares. Delicious served with a glass of cold milk
