Now I like peanut butter, I will occasionally spread a piece of toast with a generous scoop of the crunchy variety, but it’s not my “go to” product, and I don’t usually bake with it. When this months theme was Chocolate and Peanut butter I really had to think hard about the type of baked good my children would enjoy, which utilised the combination.

As it turned out I needn’t have been concerned. The kids were all over this Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie. I was lucky to get an opportunity to photograph it before it was completely demolished. I guess it goes to show 319 million Americans can’t be wrong.

What was the brownie like? It was deliciously rich, sweet and chocolaty with a smooth, salty, crunchy creamy vein of warm peanut butter flowing through the middle. I didn’t get the opportunity to try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie cold as it didn’t last that long!
