    your brother looks like an extremely sunny gentleman. Also: OMG I need to make these brownies!!

  2. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    A post with brown-sugar loaded brownies AND your brother. I just about died. Luckily I didn’t, because I have a massive stash of 80%+ chocolate to go through and it’d be a pity to waste.

  3. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Those brownies look amazing! Chocolate and peanut butter are meant to go together. You and your brother seem like you have such a good relationship- I envy that! I can’t stand my brother, haha! My parents thought we would grow out of our dislike of each other, but we’re both in our 20’s and still don’t get along…

  4. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Ooh, sounds yummy! I love peanut butter and I love brownies, so it sounds like a win/win to me!

    My dear Hannah, there are never any left overs when you bake for boys!
    One day there will be a special boy worthy of your gourmet creations, who will answer the call of your flamingo dance! I LOVE that! 😉
    Thank you also for providing us with more photos of your spunky brother!!
    I’m afraid I can’t help you with a camera; my mum has a complete photo obsession, which has made me swing completely in the opposite direction, so I rarely take photos!

  6. Lizzi

    GIMMEeee. I’m not a boy, but you’re welcome to bake for me any time you like 🙂

    and yes, crunchy DOES win forever. forever and ever. amen.

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I think I have entered a chocolate peanut butter dreamy haze. I never want to leave. These look seriously amazing! Wow.

    Also, your superb Chocolate Coconut Hazlenut butter / fudge is featured in my latest blog 🙂 It is very good! Thanks again for sharing the recipe.

    Go forth I shall, I love the sound of these! What a sweet post. Warms my heart. I love how much you love your brother.

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Here here! Aren’t boys wonderful to bake for?! They always eat so much and appreciatively so. Unless you’re married to the cake averse which I am. But the rest of his family make up for it! 😛

    Yes I suppose my horde of (one) manfolk IS waiting outside the door. But he’s sleeping, and probably would become immediately grouchy if I started baking right now. Loud noises and all.

    On this plus side, I’ve seen him eat more sugar in the past few days than ever before (ah, the delights of this never-ending Easter candy)! It’s great, I’m working him up to my level of sugar tolerance:)

  11. Libby

    Haha I love haloumi (and anything chocolate and peanut butter) so I reckon I would have also had THAT expression on my face if I was presented with a plate of zucchini fritters. Oh, but with lots of drool all over my chin.

  12. Errign

    I die. These look fantastical!

  13. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I love how gooey and underbaked they look, I haven’t had a truly decadent desert like this in a while. Crunchy peanut butter is totally the way, too.

  14. Jasmine

    That looks so good! I’m going to try this recipe out soon! 😀

  15. Johanna GGG

    OMG I can’t believe you posted about peanut butter brownies without referring back to my excellent ones which were just brownies with peanut butter swirled into the mixture – flounce, toss head, hurrumph!!!

    Seriously, these look excellent and make me think in the name of research I would love to make these brownies just to compare how peanut butter tasted in the batter compared with swirled on top – though peanut butter is making less of an appearance in our kitchen lately – sigh!

    Agree that boys are great to bake for – especially the ones that are skinny despite eating all baking in sight – except for when they become fussy and meh about the food they bake (pointing at E here)

  16. chocolatesuze

    ohhhhh yummmm! i think im drooling

  17. MarmandeintheKitchen

    Wow, these look great! I love peanut butter and chocolate together!

  18. Evan Thomas

    Now I get your comment on my blog about him looking like me at that age. We do look freakishly similar.

  19. ASHLEA

    Uh oh, going to have to try these for sure! I’m a sucker for anything with chocolate and peanut butter. Yum!

  20. Lauren

    Hannah-san no ani wa totemo hansamu desu-yo! Yes, I know you get that a lot.

  21. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Your brother’s name is E.TeacherLord?? 😀

    I don’t think your pics get blurry at all! Okay, they *might* approach what my pics usually look like. 😉

    However, I can still identify your brownies very well, and they look fab! 🙂

  22. Katherine: Unemployed

    that brownie crust is looking perfect

  23. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    “This impression comes complete with leg raised, arms bent like wings, and head tilted as if I’ve just heard the mating call of my flamingo husband.” >>> hehe girl you never cease to crack me up 🙂

  24. Vaala ◪

    Oh golly gosh, I am soon to have a horde of menfolk in need of baking (and no job so therefore perhaps a little bit too much time on my hands) so I can see you have provided the perfect saviour! Well, if I can find the supermarket (their local supermarket has, well, not survived) and get everything home in my backpack on the bike (since the roads are all scary!!).

    PS I totally get #4. My brothers, because they are older are “wiser and way more cool” than me so I always end up retreating. Although it doesn’t work this way with my parents…their wisdom has waned!

  25. Vaala ◪

    And by the way, I can’t even comprehend the fact you’ve never made a layer cake before. They are the BEST kind (mostly because people always go ‘oooo ahhhh’ at them and make you feel like you have some kind of super power).

  26. Kayla

    Yay! Peanut butter and chocolate – two of my faves! It’s so nice to have a brother like this. I can see that you’re really proud to have this brother 🙂 I actually thought you might be putting him on sale:P Yes, crunchy is the way to go. Talking about that, this fortnight’s cookbook challenge theme is ‘crunchy’ 🙂

  27. Agnes

    Crunchy wins forever. Amen.

  28. chanel11

    Hahah I love it – man magnet brownies!

  29. sophia

    Get a Nikon if you want a dslr, and a Canon if you want a point-and-shoot.

    Your brother sounds cool. Esp since he loves your baking. So sweet that you guys are besties! 🙂

  30. Nic@diningwithastud

    Crunchy TOTALLY wins forever!!!! 🙂 I was looking for a brownie recipe over the weekend – because apparenty all our Easter chocolate was not chocolate enough lol

  31. Fiona

    Yes, cooking for Rish isn’tgreat when it’s sweet, he doesn’t eat enough of it 🙁

  32. Alisa Fleming

    Oh heavenly goodness, those look amazing Hannah!

    Hmm, if only I had someone that wonderful to bake for … oh, whoops, I guess I do have a husband 🙂

  33. Iron Chef Shellie

    ahhhh chocolate + peanut butter… what more could one want!?

  34. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Aww sibling love! And here’s to you getting a spanking new camera soon!

  35. Anna Johnston

    OMG…. Not a boy, but my lovely, feel free to bake for me ANYTIME. These look flippin fantastic. 🙂
    PS: Guess What… Guess What…. Guess What? I think I may have found a someone special for you to meet. (Insert – Happy Dances) He is ridiculously smart, an animation pro (works for a video production company), UBER creative & talented, draws stuff like Da Vinci, he is tall and dark, and oh sooooo lovely. 🙂 Can I Pu-Lease give him your details…. Can I? Can I?
    PPS: Catch up soon? Chocolate & Beers…. YES!

  36. msihua

    Ooo.. yes please! Did you just offer to bake these for me when you’re next down? I think you did.. I could hear you silently in your head.. bake me bake me for I-Hua!! Yayy!!

  37. Karen

    Men would not have enough time to flock to my house for these incredible looking brownies, because I would have eaten the whole batch myself in no time at all! Your brother is one lucky guy. 🙂

  38. betty

    oh these look amazing yum yum! thanks for sharing the recipe :O)

  39. whisperinggums

    I think you should try these with cashew butter! And hmmm … now I see what happens when I’m away.

  40. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Whoever said on Facebook that you should make a fanpage for your brother, I agree with them. I “like” him. 😉 ::coughHOTTIEcough::

    Oh yes, there are brownies in this post too, yes, right. Very little can distract me from peanut butter baked goods, you know.

    I would like to order one Hannah, one Hannah-brother, and one pan of these brownies. Please provide a shipping time estimate with my order confirmation. Thank you.

  41. Louise

    I don’t do the pb chocolate thing of course, but can’t help thinking how nice these would be with nutella, or maybe even some of the ABC butter I have stashed in the fridge. I do like your new frock. When you whittle down some camera decisions, I’m happy to ask DH (photographer) for his thoughts if you’d like.

  42. Shannon

    Peanut butter and chocolate together? And I wasn’t invited? The shame.

  43. Susan

    I will make anything with those 2 ingredients in them and they are brownies too! I can’t wait to move this weekend so I can start baking again!

  44. Camille

    Want! Want to be in my own kitchen so I can use my pantry ingredients again. If I had a jar of peanut butter here, I would definitely be spreading it on the chocolate bar I have on my nightstand. (What? Don’t tell me you don’t keep chocolate in your bedroom.)
