This Thermomix Peanut Butter Brownies recipe makes insanely decadent gooey fudge brownies with a peanut butter layer.
You know what's even better than chocolate brownies? Chocolate and peanut butter brownies! Seriously. These are amazing.
My daughter randomly requested that I make chocolate brownies with peanut butter. I'm not sure where she got the idea, but it sounded like a good one. And boy, it really was.
I make normal Thermomix brownies all the time, so it wasn't too difficult to adapt the recipe to make these deliciously rich peanut butter stuffed brownies.
The peanut butter filling takes them to another level and results in a sticky, fudgy mouthful of brownie that tastes like a Snickers bar. Yum!
How to make Peanut Butter Brownies
There are two parts to these chocolate peanut butter brownies: the peanut butter layer and the brownies themselves.
Firstly you make the peanut butter layer in the Thermomix and set it aside. Next you make the brownie mixture in the Thermomiix. Both are straight forward and easy to do. Just follow the step by step instructions in the recipe!
When it comes to assembling the brownies, first you need to roll out your peanut butter layer. Sieve a little icing sugar onto your kitchen surface and then roll out the peanut butter mixture. You want it to be roughly the size of your baking tin.
Now spoon half the brownie mixture into your baking tin and smooth it down.
Then lay the peanut butter layer on top. It can be quite crumbly so you may need to move it in pieces. Don't worry if it looks messy (see my effort in the middle picture below). It doesn't need to look pretty; you will be covering it up.
Finally spoon over the remaining half of the brownie mixture and smooth it over. And that's it, ready for the oven.
Bake it in the oven for 25 minutes and then let it cool in the tin before serving.
