Chocolate Spread and Peanut Butter Brownie


Have you got some peanut butter sitting in the cupboard that needs using up? Whether its smooth or nutty you can use it to make a squidgy brownie.

You use less sugar to make this brownie – which is what normally gives it that lovely crust- as the chocolate spread and peanut butter give that same result but without it being so sweet.I recommend using a dark chocolate spread to give it a rich colour and denser flavour.
