This is really yummy. Be careful not to over cook it though. Also, during step 2 the mix looks like it has curdled, but don't worry it still turns our great.

Did my own thing with this recipe and it still turned out amazing! didnt have any caster sugar, used soft brown and added mini eggs crushed through it and on top. Was a big hit

The first time I made this I used Green and Back's Maya Gold chocolate as it was all I had. It was so good I have continued to do it this way. This is always a success!

I wasn't expecting it to sink so much, but it certainly didn't affect the taste. Had it with honeycomb ice-cream and it was to die for! Very chocolatey!

For all those who are unsure about baking powder the recipe states half a tsp...

I made this for my father in law's birthday and it went down a treat with both young and old. I thought I left in in the oven too long as it was quite crunchy on the outside but I believe this is the way that it's supposed be. It was also really simple to make. Definitely one to keep.

Turned out amazing. Only downside was the chocolate I used was too rich. But now I know for next time!

Made this last night and it is lovely, thought id overcooked it as the top was crunchy but looking at other peoples comments, it was supposed to be like that.

Fantastic recipe, have made it twice in the last four days. Kids adore it, and its super easy and quick to make. Will have to make double next time as it just doesn't last long enough in my house.

This is just like the brownies out of a box; I am so impressed. No way to eat a slice the size shown in the picture; a quarter would be manageable and then with ice cream as it really is a lot...but very nice.
