Ever have those moments where all you can think about is brownie? Yes, you know what I’m talking about. You’re going about your day, minding your own business… and then boom. You see them. In a magazine, in a shop, it doesn’t matter. It’s too late for you now. You’ve seen them. The brownies. Gooey brownies. In all their chocolatey glory.
You hear them calling out to you with little voices “We are meant to be together. Please, consume me, don’t let anyone else have me.” You want them and nobody will stop you from having them.
This, my friends, is what happened to me earlier this week and the only thing for me to do was make some brownies. Serious brownies. These bad boys are definitely not for the faint of heart. They have dark chocolate, white chocolate and Mars Bar in them. Best not to think about the calories.
What you will need
- 175g plain flour
- 225g butter
- 125g dark chocolate
- 2 mars bars (chopped into chunks)
- 80g white chocolate (chopped into chunks)
- 80g very dark cocoa powder (make sure it is for baking not drinking)
- 250g caster sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 4 eggs (beaten)
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- ½ tsp baking powder
Preheat your oven to 160°C.
Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a bain marie.
Take off the heat and mix in the sugar. Stir well.
Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the flour and stir well to ensure there are no lumps.
Add the eggs and beat well until combined.
Add the mars bar, white chocolate, salt and vanilla essence and mix well.
Pour into a greased and lined baking tray.
Put the tray into your oven and bake for 40 minutes. Your brownie will have a crusty top and a slightly gooey texture. Perfect!
Allow to cool and then DEVOUR.
