This is my sister’s recipe and we have been using it for years now. It’s a major treat but well worth it! I genuinely don’t normally like brownies but these are phenomenal, I could eat a whole batch in one go (and put myself into a chocolate coma).
- 90g Plain Flour
- 50g Cocoa Powder
- 200g Butter
- 200g Dark Chocolate
- 3 Eggs
- 280g Caster Sugar
- 100g Milk Chocolate
- 100g White Chocolate
- Break the dark chocolate up into small pieces and add to the butter in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave in blasts of 30 seconds for approximately 2 mins, stiring each time until both are fully melted and mix together. (Alternatively you can melt it using a bain-marie if you prefer).
- Put this mixture aside to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- In another bowl whisk together the eggs and caster sugar until pale in colour and doubled in size. (You can use an electric whisk or do it by hand).
- Once the chocolate and butter mixture has reached room temperature (you won’t be able to feel it on your finger), fold the egg and sugar mix gently. It will begin to create a marble effect as you fold, but keep going until the mixture is a solid brown colour.
- Sieve the cocoa powder and flour together into a separate bowl, mix together until fully combined.
- Now fold the flour and cocoa mix in with the main mix a bit at a time.
- Break your milk and white chocolate up into small chunks and integrate throughout the mix.
- Grease your approx 20cm by 20cm tin with butter and line with parchment.
- Spread the mix evenly throughout the tin.
- Bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool fully before slicing them into squares.
Tip: If you’re not already super chocolated out I can highly recommend some melted chocolate on top!
