Method

  1. Butter and line a 23cm square brownie tin (or a similar size rectangular tin) and heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the dark and white chocolates into two separate large bowls and add half of the butter to each. One bowl at a time, heat in the microwave on High for 1½ mins, stirring halfway, until the chocolate and butter are both melted. Alternatively, melt over a pan of simmering water (making sure the water doesn’t touch the base of the bowl). Stir until the chocolate and butter are totally incorporated.
  2. Add 150g sugar and 2 beaten eggs to each bowl, then beat until smooth. Now stir 50g of the flour into the dark chocolate mix and the remaining 90g into the white mix.
  3. Spoon tbsps of the batter into the tin, alternating dark and white chocolate to make a patchwork pattern of blobs. Once the bottom of the tin is covered, go over the first layer, spooning white on top of the dark blobs and dark on top of the white. To marble the brownies, pull a skewer through the pan several times to make feathery swirls.
  4. Bake for 35 mins or until the middle of the brownie is just set and the white chocolate patches on top have a pale golden crust. Leave to cool completely in the tin before cutting into 16 squares. Will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

These brownies rock the nicest ones i think i have tasted, they did take a it longer to cook but the results were well worth it and so easy to make. the waist line wont like them quite so much tho I think!

well after my fiance begging for me to make some brownies for him, i decided to settle on this recipe and guess what...we all love it. took more time than other brownie recipes but loved making them.

I love this dish I chose to make these as a dessert for my catering practical exam last year along with my starter and main course. It went down a treat with the judges and with my catering teacher it also went down a treat with my family the brownies were soft and smelt fantastic defiantly recommend this recipe to anyone. xx

I made a large batch in a 12"x12" tray which I had treated myself to a few weeks earlier. It had cost me quite a bit of money but the resulting brownies were wonderful. A good quality tin makes a lot of difference. I had so many compliments and I think they were the best I had ever made. A superb recipe.

I never liked the look of brownies (dry cracked looking) but cooked these for my husband. He thought they where the best he had ever had and I am completely converted if not ADDICTED delicious.
I think they need 55mins cooking but could just be my oven.

Have made these loads of times now and they are by far the easiest and best flavoured recipe for brownies we've come across - a firm family favourite. Sometimes the mixture can need a little extra time in the oven approx 15 mins. Using value chocolate doesn't change flavour dramatically and reduces cost Family and friends love them and there are never any leftover - have given recipe out to countless friends

These took FOREVER (!) to cook and my white chocolate batter split quite badly and I couldn't retrieve it, therefore the mixture ended up quite grainy. They came out of the over ok though and were very gooey (possibly because I got bored of trying to cook them for longer though!)

Made this twice now - and both times I didn't need to cook it for longer. Washing up took no longer than usual, and they were absolutely gorgeous.
I made the Best Ever Brownies a few years ago - they were really nice but I think this recipe is nicer!

Made these and were really tasty, found it quite easy to do. I used Divine dark choc and Tesco belgian white choc and it melted and tasted great, a little rich but tasty.
I thought they maybe weren't ready when they'd had the specified time but then once they'd completely cooled they were just right. taste good warmed with vanilla ice cream too.

I set the oven to 180° fan oven instead of 160°, that way they cooked faster. The white did go a bit brown, but it still gave a marbled effect. When I melted the white chocolate it split the moment I added the sugar. I did it again though making sure the chocolate didn't get too hot and then it worked perfectly. Smelt fantastic while cooking and tasted wonderful. No good if you're on a diet though!

Such an amazingly moorish recipe! We make this at every get together with friends and it all goes within minutes - no chance of keeping it for up to three days as suggested!

Am just about to give these a go but since they take a long time to cook I am going to tr something I came across by accident or perhaps by the devine intervention of some god of chocolicious ecstasy............... If ever a brownie recipe is going to take over 25 minutes to cook, I add a handful of roughly chopped werthers originals. Not the soft kind. Honestly they sort of turn into fudge lumps that melt. Dont know what they will be like after an hour tho, will report back.

I would agree that the brownies took a bit longer to cook than specified in the recipe but the result tested very good. I have made normal brownies before and the white chocolate mixture was a nice change. Although the white chocolate mixture does brown on top a little, when cut the brownies still look more impressive as you can see the different colours on the sides.

This was easy to make, although I did have a slight accident the first time, when I added 350g of sugar to the white chocolate mix, instead of 150g. However, when I managed to make tese with the correct amount of ingredients, the recipe was easy, and the finished brownies were gorgeous
