A good dark chocolate, cut into uneven chunks works best here, but chocolate chips can beused.  The flavor of ice cream is up to you.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 14 Tbs scant 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbs peanut butter
  • ½ cup salted peanuts
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate (cut into uneven chunks)
  • Cinnamon ice cream ( see recipe here)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF / 180ºC.
  2. Heat an 8-inch cast iron skillet over low heat for 1 or 2 minutes. Add butter, and when it's half melted, add sugar and mix with a whisk.
  3. Add eggs and mix quickly. Remove skillet from the heat. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix carefully, and  then mix in vanilla.
  4. Stir in peanuts, and add mounds of peanut butter and chocolate chunks. Mix it just a few times to marble, but not too much or the chocolate will all melt.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes, or until top is dry but center is still somewhat wet.
  6. Remove from the oven. Serve with scoops of cinnamon ice cream.
