Choc-Peanut Brownie Biscuits

 

If you love brownies, you’re going to fall in love with these biscuits … it truly will be a case of love at first sight … or should I say, love at first bite!

 

These Choc-Peanut Brownie Biscuits are rich, chewy and scrumptious. Unfortunately, they won’t be suitable for school lunchboxes if your school has a “No Nut” Policy but that’s perfectly okay because it simply means there’ll be more for you. So pour yourself a drink, put up your feet and munch on one (or maybe five)!

Serves: 30
Ingredients ...
  • ½ cup butter
  • 320g dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • ⅔ cup crushed peanuts
Method ...
  1. Preheat oven to 175 C (fan-forced).
  2. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper and set aside for later.
  3. In a small saucepan, add butter and melt over a gently heat (don’t allow to boil). Remove from heat and stir in dark chocolate. Most of the chocolate will melt but you may need to return the saucepan to a very low heat to completely melt it, remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Place the castor sugar, eggs, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 3 – 4 minutes on a very slow speed.
  5. Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into this mixture as it continues to beat and turn off the electric mixer once well combined.
  6. Add the baking powder and plain flour and mix with the electric mixer for 1 minute.
  7. Remove the bowl from the mixer, add the crushed peanuts and stir through until well distributed.
  8. Drop tablespoons of mixture onto the trays, leaving a very large gap between each biscuit as they will spread. I use large cookie trays and only cook 6 biscuits at a time.
  9. Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow biscuits to cool on the baking trays for another 5 minutes. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. These biscuits can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.

  1. Yum! These look great. A different alternative to the standard brownie slice.

  2. Yuuuuum. These look amazing. I wonder if I can convince someone to bake them for me? I currently have a broken ankle and can’t do much more than gaze longingly into the pantry… #TeamIBOT

    • Hopefully someone will bake you a batch but, if not, these could be number one on your “to do” list once you’re up and about … sorry to hear about your broken ankle … hope it’s better soon!

  3. They look yum.
    Just a reminder to leave a new blog post for IBOT. Thanks.
