Cocoa brownies with peanut butter chips

Peanut butter chips are not for sale in the dutch grocery stores, so last year when i bougt some stuff in an american online shop bought this chips two. But they where waiting and waiting to be used in my pantry. But now with our upcoming travel to the states our heads are all about eat, drink, sleep and live the american way! Whe really can't wait to go there again and whe where really craving for brownies, so i found this great recipe to finally use my peanut butter chips. Now i will have to take a lott of them home after our travel, because whe loved this chocolate brownie with the creamy texture of reese's peanut butter chips!

Recipe: as seen here

1 1/4 sticks of unsalted butter(1 stick is 113 grams)
1 1/3 cup of white sugar
3/4 cup Cacao
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour 1 cup of peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees(165 c) and make sure rack is in the lower third of the oven. Coat an 8 inch baking pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. In a large heat proof bowl, combine the butter, sugar, cocoa and salt. Set the bowl in a large skillet of water and simmer over medium low heat. Stir occasionally until the butter is melted and mixture is hot to the touch. The mixture will look slightly grainy. Remove from heat and cool until warm. Add vanilla and stir with a wooden spoon. Add the eggs one at a time mixing thoroughly after each one. When the batter looks well blended, smooth and shiny, slowly add the flour and stir until it's combined thoroughly, then stir vigorously for 30 strokes. Stir in the peanut butter chips. Pour into the baking pan and place a few more peanut butter chips on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely then lift up ends of the parchment paper (if used) and transfer brownies to a cutting board where you cut into bite sized pieces. Enjoy.

Notes: I baked the complete 25 minutes and the toothpick still did'nt came out clean, baked 10minutes (2x 5 minutes)longer then the original recipe called for. The brownies where really wonderfull after that!
