Brownie cookies with peanut butter frosting (recipe from Donna Hay magazine)

  • 12 oz. (350 g) dark chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons (40 g) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup (150 g) regular sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (35 g) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

Bring out all the ingredients needed.

Put the butter and 7 oz. (200 g) of the chocolate into a bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.

Stir until the mixture has melted, then remove the bowl from the heat.

Leave to cool slightly while yo get on with the recipe.

Bring out the egg, sugar and vanilla extract.

Whisk for about 15 minutes.

The mixture should be very fluffy now.

Time to add the remaining ingredients.

Carefully fold in the flour.

Now add the remaining chocolate (5 oz./150 g) and the melted butter/chocolate mixture.

Using a rubber spatula, stir until everything is combined.

The batter needs to firm up slightly – leave it to rest for 10 minutes.

The batter is now ready to use.

Use about 1 tablespoon batter per cookie.

Arrange the mounds on a lined baking tray. Leave some room in between to allow for spreading during baking.

Bake in a 350˚F (180˚C) oven for about 8-10 minutes.

Leave the cookies on the trays for at least 20-30 minutes.
