Brownies:

  • 1 cup (250g) butter
  • 1 cup (300g) tightly packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (250g) dark chocolate, melted
  • ½ cup (80g) Sydney Blend
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup (65g) cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ heaping cup (100g) peanuts chopped (optional)

Peanut Butter Frosting:

  • ¼ (57g) cup butter
  • ½ (125g) cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup (115g) powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Heat: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a 9″ square tin with baking paper.

Preparation

Mix: In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and brown sugar for about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time. Add the melted chocolate and mix until fully incorporated. In a separate bowl, mix together Sydney Blend, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix on medium-high speed until combined into a thick batter. Add peanuts (or chocolate chips) and incorporate through the mixture. Pour the batter into the pan and use a spatula to spread it evenly.

Frosting: Cream the butter and peanut butter together until combined. Gradually add the powdered sugar and starting on slow speed, whip together until the sugar is completely mixed in. Add 1 Tbsp of cream and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and continue to whip together on high-speed until you have a soft and smooth consistency. Spread this mixture on top of the brownie batter or swirl within the batter with a spatula.

Bake: Bake brownies on center rack for 30-35 minutes or until set. For gooey brownies, bake 5 minutes less.
