Peanut butter & Oreo brownies

I'm a big fan of peanut butter, Oreos and brownies, so I got a little over excited when my best friend Sam suggested combining all three into one glorious batch of nominess.

I made a small batch as a tester in a 20cm diametre tin, but you can easily double the following ingredients, or use your own brownie or chocolate cake recipe and just add the peanut butter and Oreos.

Makes eight pieces
125g self-raising flour
125g brown sugar
25g cocoa
125g margarine
125g dark chocolate
100ml water
2 eggs
peanut butter
1 packet of Oreos

Set the oven to Gas Mark 3/

Grease the baking tin.

Mix the flour, sugar and cocoa in a bowl.

Melt the margarine and chocolate slowly in a saucepan. Once melted, slowly add the water.

Stir the melted ingredients into the dry ingredients, then mix in the eggs.

Pour a small amount of mixture into the tin, just enough to cover the bottom.

Spread a generous amount of peanut butter on both sides of an Oreo and place on top of the mixture. Repeat until you've used most or all of your Oreos.

Pour the remaining brownie mix over the top and spread out evenly.

Place in the oven for approx 40 minutes.

Best served warm, so I recommend scoffing immediately.
