Famous Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie

EXCLUSIVE! I normally keep my best recipes a secret but I am sharing this recipe as a chance for everyone to see how amazing it is! I originally discovered this recipe when in Sydney with my family. My Mums best friend made this brownie and sold it in a small cafe down by the beach and it was a huge hit.This is a SCRUMPTIOUS brownie that can be served as a dessert with cream and ice-cream or simply as a snack or special treat. The peanut butter swirls on top make it not just your typical brownie but something spectacular. This brownie doesn't last for long as it's very hard to resist. There has been times when I make this for my flatmates and within 2 hours or less it's gone and I haven't even got to it! I think that is a sure sign that it is a definite favourite in our flat and I know it is with my family as well.
