peanut butter brownies
I saw a few commercials for Reese’s peanut butter cups and it got me craving chocolate and peanut butter.
I kind of eyeballed it with a few things; the chocolate was leftover from 2 open bags I had; the can of condensed milk was also opened and partially used and I just added the peanut butter to my taste in the melting mixture. I always disagree about with people who say baking is an exact science. While certain things like flour and leavening ratios should always be kept in mind, once you made something enough times you should be able to play with it to see what happens. Baking is not so precise that you would be always in danger of messing up.
Peanut butter brownies
- 10oz chocolate chips
- 12oz condensed milk
- 1/3 cup coconut oil (or butter/shortening)
- 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter (add more for a stronger taste)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 335°F. Melt chocolate, coconut oil(or butter or shortening), condensed milk, and peanut butter thoroughly in (a heatproof)mixing bowl over slow simmering pot of water. Take off heat, mix in eggs and sugar, then dry ingredients. Grease and fill square(8×8″ or 9″x9″?) baking pan, bake for 30-35mins (I was using a heaving glass baking pan) till center just sets.
