What You'll Need:
  • 4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup butter in microwave on high for 2 minutes (or melt in a saucepan on stove over low heat), just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in granulated sugar then mix in the beaten eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour and peanuts then spread into a greased 9- x 13-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs; do not overbake. Cool in pan.
  3. Meanwhile, to make peanut butter layer, combine peanut butter and confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl until well blended and smooth. Spread over cooled brownies.
  4. Then, to make the glaze, place 4 squares of semisweet chocolate, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat mixture in microwave on high for 2 minutes (or melt in a saucepan on stove over low heat), just until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spread over peanut butter layer. Cool until set then cut into squares.
