Peanut Butter Brownies

Aromatic. Rich. Delicious. sinful.

It's Friday! Yay! After the weekdays hard work, I bet most of you will want something good to reward yourself. Be it, a sumptuous meal, a nice short holiday trip over the weekend, or maybe just laze around on our comfy beds and sleep like no tomorrow. *that's me probably*

Last weekend was not exceptional for me either...instead of patting myself on the back after a good week's work stress, i made myself (ALLLLLLL JUST FOR MYSELF) a sinful peanut butter brownie. Boy of boy...i must say, you can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate aye? (I think Nabisco will agree with me...judging by the fact that they manufactured Peanut Butter Oreo cookies.) Forget about the little angel in you whispering endlessly to ur ears about FAT FAT FAT...just for once (or maybe sometimes / often....hehe) take the little Satan advice to indulge in these rich peanut butter brownies. No regrets.

The brownies recipe is originated by Jamie Oliver and i found this recipe from Baker Lee's web page. I added a dollop or two...wait..i think it's three peanut butter to the brownie's really up to you actually...just how much you devour peanut butter (heh! *evil grin*)

Wait no more and here it is :) Enjoy!

  2. Melt the butter and dark chocolate over a double boiler and mix until smooth. (dumb-baker added 3 tbsp of peanut butter into the chocolate mixture)
  3. Add chopped walnuts and stir together.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, and then add this to the chocolate mixture.
