Salted Peanut Chocolate Fudge Brownies.

I actually had some peanut butter chips left over from making my Lion Cake Pops and half a packet of salted peanuts languishing in the cupboard.  So that was all the excuse I needed to make these!

I did make the peanut butter frosting which was nice but I think was a little too much and detracted from the beautiful brownies so we ended up scraping most or all of the frosting off and just eating them bare.

The brownies are so fudgy and melting then the salty peanuts come in with a crunch - beautiful.
Thanks for the recipe Reeni.


  1. Oh these sound lovely, and although the frosting does look good, the brownies on their own look good too.I must try cooking with salted peanuts.

  2. soooo lovely... really need these now! I love the salty and sweet, it's just perfect. Im out of peanuts and chocolate at the moment but on my next visit to the supermarket....

  3. Those look AMAZING! I know what you mean about the frosting...sometimes a brownie just needs to be a brownie! :)

  4. Kath - I have made a few things with salted peanuts and I love them all!
    Dom - I got chicken thighs when last at the shops - going to use them tonight. See how you are inspiring the masses?
    Anna - yes, definitely need just a plain brownie - no need for anything else - great on their own.

  5. Mmm, this looks like a fantastic salty sweet combo. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your brownies up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/04/sweets-for-saturday-11.html
