Peanut butter chocolate brownies

I love to bake and I adore the combination of peanut butter and chocolate! With Chloe’s 15th birthday coming up, I thought that I would make some peanut butter chocolate brownies. I know that they are one of Chloe’s favourite cakes that I bake. The recipe is quite naughty but everyone deserves a treat now and again! These are perfect on there own but even better if served warm with some vanilla icecream.

3) Turn off the heat and use a wooden spoon to beat in the eggs one at a time.
 
4) Stir in the flour and then tip into the baking tin.
 
5) Melt the rest of the peanut butter and then drizzle over the brownie mix.
 
6) Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until it has a crust but the middle still seems ever so slightly uncooked.
