  • STEP 3 Pour into a bowl, stir in the vanilla extract and eggs, one by one, followed by the flour.

  • STEP 5 Allow to cool in the tin completely.

  • STEP 6 Once cool, put all of the fudge ingredients in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.

  • STEP 7 Stir until melted and completely smooth, then spread over the cooled brownie base.

  • STEP 8 Alternatively do this in short bursts in the microwave.

  • STEP 9 Chill for 2 hours until the fudge is set.

  • STEP 10 Melt another 100g dark chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or in short bursts in the microwave.

  • STEP 11 Cool for a few minutes then pour over the brownies, tilting to cover all the fudge.

  • STEP 12 Sprinkle over the peanuts and chill again until the chocolate top is set.

  • STEP 13 To finish, melt the remaining 25g of dark chocolate and drizzle over the top, leave to set then remove from the tin and cut into 16 pieces.
