Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe
For the brownie: Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 325°F. Lightly spray an 8-in baking dish with oil, then line with parchment.
Sift flour, cocoa and salt into a medium bowl.
Combine chocolate and butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring halfway, until almost melted, about 3 minutes. Stir until smooth.
Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Scrape in chocolate mixture, then stir until combined. Gradually stir in flour mixture just until almost mixed. (Over mixing toughens brownies.) Stir in peanuts until evenly distributed. Scrape batter into prepared dish. Smooth top.
Bake until edges are firm and a cake tester inserted in centre comes out almost clean, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove pan to a rack and cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
For the Icing: Stir frosting and peanut butter in a medium bowl until combined. Spread over cooled brownie. Cut into 16 squares. Brownies will keep well, covered, at room temperature for up to 3 days.
