Food Monday ~ Peanut Butter squares

Peanut Butter squares

for the base:
50g dark muscovado sugar
200g icing sugar
50g unsalted butter
200g smooth peanut butter

for the topping
100g milk chocolate
200g plain chocolate
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Line a 23 cm square brownie tin with baking parchment.
Whizz all the ingredients for the base together in a food processor until smooth

Press the mixture evenly into the lined brownie tin.
To make the topping, melt the chocolates and butter together in a bowl over hot water, then spread on the base. Put the tin in the fridge to set. When the chocolate has hardened, cut into small squares.

    Well, GM, you have finally crossed the line!

    You have pushed me too far…I know I am a good natured person but as of this comment, I AM OUT OF HERE!

    I know you will grovel and beg me to come back but you will not see me again until you learn not to use obscure ingredients like MUSCOVADO SUGAR in your recipes. I only figured out CASTER SUGAR about a week ago and now you hit me with this Russian sugar which I know I cannot get in my local store.

    So, Goodbye and good luck… Enjoy your Peanut Butter Squares..I won’t be having any…

    Nancy get over it. Caster or muscovado sugar, we all know that Grannymar is “sweeter than honey”. You are like the Toyboys, you are stuck on her.
    My problem is that I only have a 22 cm and a 24 cm brownie tin. and I will be ‘darned” if I going to go out and buy a 23 cm tin. She can just keep her squares.

    Maybe we can “Chip in” and buy a 23 cm. tin between us. You can use it one week and I will use it the next.

    I agree with you, we can’t let her push us around like this. Muscavado sugar,Indeed! What a nerve. Next she’ll be having us buying some other exotic sugar like Domino or something.

    I wonder if this is how it started on the Bounty. I happen to know the Mr. Christian didn’t like Muscavado sugar either…..

    Nancy, I have plenty of Muscavado sugar left over from my young, carefree revolutionary communist days! They called me Pasha. Before the revolution at least …

    Nancy, I looked up muscavado sugar, and it’s a cross between muscles and avocados, their juices. I can see Mr. Christian’s point.

    Comrade Fossil…

    Send Muscavado sugar immediately to our secret cell and I will make Peanut Butter Squares for our Trotsky-Lenin Day Celebration.

    Comrade Mayo…. Send 23 cm. tin ASAP. I will have our “Associate” pick it up in Gorsky Park and deliver to me.

    Peanut Butter Squares for ALL!!!!!

    I will ignore the rude party-goers.

    GM: I was looking for my old recipe for these and I distinctly recall those miniature coloured marshmallows strewn about them. Oh so addictive.
    On second thoughts: Maybe I’m better off without them?
