Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

So it’s Superbowl Sunday and you’ve just been invited to your friends house to watch it and have to bring food.. But you have no idea what to make. No need to worry! I have a super easy recipe that will surely make you the most popular person at the party.

Instead of going with the usual Pigs in a Blanket or Nachos,
I opted for more sophisticated, delicious and (best of all) gluten free dish!

What you’ll need:

– 8 ounces dark chocolate

– 1 cup butter

– 2 cups brown sugar

– 4 eggs

– 1 tbsp vanilla

– 1 cup gluten free flour

– 1 tsp baking powder

– 1/2 cup cocoa powder

– 1/2 tsp salt

– 2 tbsp peanut butter

– 3 tbsp butter

– 2/3 of a pack of Chipits Reese Peanut Butter Chips

First, in a small bowl (or a mixer!), whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and place to the side.

Next, in a double boiler (so the chocolate doesn’t burn – DO NOT melt chocolate in microwave!) melt chocolate and butter.

Once thoroughly mixed, add vanilla and brown sugar and mix until blended. Once mixed, take the bowl off of the boiling water and place to the side to cool slightly.

In another double boiler, melt the peanut butter and butter together. Once melted, add your Chipits and stir! Once melted, place to the side.

Finally, add the warm chocolate mix to the dry ingredients and start to mix. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, but you can do this by hand or with a hand held mixer! Finally, add the eggs. I added some of the peanut butter mix to this as well, but make sure to save some for the end!

Place the brownie mix in a lightly greased pan. Pour on the rest of the peanut butter mix and swirl away! Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
