Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Cake

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie CakeIt’s my husband’s birthday today and as an exception –
this Sunday isn’t sugar free!

This brownie cake is sweet and salty, soft and crunchy, cakey and fundgy…Oh and a bit messy 😉

Compared to regular brownies the batter has about half the amount of sugar, yet still enough to achieve the desired texture.The peanut butter chips melt in the batter making it all chocolaty and peanut buttery goodness.

Wishing all dads out there a Happy Father’s Day and to the dad of my future kids, Happy Birthday xDark Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Cake
