Peanut Butter Brownies

In the middle of winter, when it's cold, dark and boring. If I'm not warm by wrapping myself with blanket while watching six packs of Jensen Ackles in "Supernatural", I'll be in the kitchen and baking something to keep me warm.

Brownies is the first choice of mine, quick and easy. My husband loves peanut butter and walnut brownies, I think it's a good match, with a little bit of salty peanut butter, bitter sweet of dark chocolate brownie.....for's perfect!!!!

200 g. dark chocolate 
200 g. unsalted butter
1 cup plain flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla paste
4-5 tbs peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped walnut (smooth or crunchy)

Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave for 45 sec for the first time then stir to combine if still lumpy, put in microwave again for 10 sec each time, set aside.
In the mix bowl, whisk sugar and eggs together until light and fluffy, add chocolate and butter mixture, stir to combine and then add flour and chopped walnut, mix well.
Pour the mixture in to the baking tray, drop spoon fulls of peanut butter in then use the tip of the knife to drag all over the brownie to swirl peanut butter and chocolate brownie.
Bake for 30 mins maybe shorter or longer depend on the thickness of the brownie. Allow to cool before cut.
Chewy, moist, crunchy, salty, bitter sweet brownies, what else you want....
