Brownie Cookies with Peanut Butter Frosting




WOW! Rich, dark chocolate, chewie, brownie cookies smooshed together with sweet and salty peanut butter frosting!! This must be one of the most delicious and utterly happy marriages ever! They are insanely good and the ultimate cookie for every chocolate and peanut butter lover!  Another great thing, it's actually quite simple to make these babies.





Brownie Cookies with Peanut Butter Frosting, makes 12
350g dark chocolate, chopped
40g butter
2 eggs
2/3 cups (150g) caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (35g)  plain flour, sifted
1/4 tsp baking powder, sifted

Peanut Butter Frosting:
1 cup (160g) icing sugar
1 cup (280g) smooth peanut butter
80g butter
1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven at 180 degrees C. Place 200g of chocolate and the butter in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Set aside. Place eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix for about 15 minutes or until pale and creamy. Stir through the flour, baking powder, chocolate mixture and the remaining chocolate and allow to stand for 10 minutes. Spoon tablespoon's of the mixture, at a time, onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until puffed and cracked. Allow to cool completely on trays.

To make peanut butter frosting, place sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix for about 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add the cream and mix for another 2 minutes. Spread half the cookies with peanut butter frosting and sandwich with the remaining cookies.

ENJOY!
