It’s cold and miserable in England right now and you know what makes me feel better about that? FOOD! Preferably food of the sweet variety. I love curling up with a mug of tea and one of these incredible brownies. A bold statement, but these are the best brownies I’ve ever tasted and I’m not just saying that because I made them. Upon trying one, my mum texted me demanding the recipe and my mother is a baking pro so that’s high praise indeed. They’re lightly crisp on the outside and oh so squidgy in the middle and packed with chocolate. Oh and don’t forget the sweet and salty caramel which will literally melt your soul. Fact.
These bad boys are super quick to whip up whether you just fancy a bit of comfort eating or want to impress friends and family. You can amend the recipe to suit what you fancy too, why not swap some the chocolate chunks for small marshmallows or pecans? Whatever you chose to do, don’t expect them to stay around for long…
You will need:
100g of butter
200g broken up dark chocolate
250g golden caster sugar
100g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
150g white chocolate chopped into chunks
150g milk chocolate chopped into chunks
Salted caramel (I use this)
- Heat your oven to 160 degrees fan.
- Line a 25cm tin with baking parchment then melt the butter and dark chocolate in the microwave being careful to check it every 30 seconds so it doesn’t burn. Leave to cool.
- Whisk the eggs and caster sugar together until light and fluffy.
- Fold the chocolate/butter combo into the egg mixture and then sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in and fold in until combined.
- Stir in the white and milk chocolate chunks along with anything else you fancy!
- Pour into the baking tin. Spoon salted caramel in several puddles onto the top of the mixture.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is cracked.
- Leave to cool before lifting out of the tin and cutting into 12.
