Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwich
I had blogged about a basic brownie recipe some months ago, and since then I have made them several times. Since the baking time is under 15 minutes, this is the best option when I want to make something in a jiffy for my friends. Besides summer is almost upon us and I dread any recipe with long baking times to add to the heat in the kitchen.
Today, it so happened that the same recipe meant for a 9 X 9 pan, got too thinned out and hence this idea of using two pieces to make one brownie and something to get them sticking.
Since I'd made smooth peanut at home (Video at the end of post) for the second time yesterday, they were on top of my mind to use as a glue. Plus I wanted to get in some chocolate into the middle layer too. So the fudgy middle layer was made using smooth peanut butter and melted cooking chocolate, both mixed to form a nice smooth fugde.
- In the bowl with melted chocolate, add the peanut butter and using a spoon, blend well to make a smooth fudgy paste.
- Make a sandwich using two squares of brownies, applying the peanut butter-chocolate fudge generously inbetween the slices.

Roast the peanuts and grind them with their skins with a pinch of salt and sugar until they turn into a fine butter. That's about it.
It was for the first time I was tasting peanut butter inside of a brownie and it tasted fantastic! It's not just me, but my friend Preeti for whom I made this, absolutely loved it too.
