To Die for Chocolate Brownies.
Member recipe by laur3n12
ServingsServes 1 - 15 Brownies
- 185g butter
- 185g amazing milk chocolate
- 85g plain flour
- 40g cocoa powder
- 75g white chocolate
- 75g milk chocolate
- 50g milk chocolate chips
- 4 medium eggs
- 265g sugar
- Cut up all the butter into a good size glass bowl, then break up 185g of your amazing milk chocolate into small pieces and add in with the butter. Fill a saucepan about one quarter full with hot water, then sit the bowl on top of the saucepan and allow it to melt. Put over a low heat until the butter and chocolate have melted, stirring occasionally to mix them together. Once the butter &chocolate has melted together cover the glass bowl loosely with cling film and put in the microwave for 2 minutes on High. Leave the melted mixture to cool to room temperature.
- While you wait for the chocolate &butter to cool, place a shelf in the middle of your oven and turn the oven on to fan 160C. Use a shallow 20cm square tin, place grease proof paper into the tin. Now tip 85g plain flour and 40g cocoa powder into a sieve held over a medium bowl, to get rid of any lumps.
- With a sharp knife, chop 50g white chocolate and 50g milk chocolate into small chunks on a chopping board. Put the two different chocolates to one side for later use. After measured out your milk chocolate chips put them aside next to your chocolate.
- Break 4 medium eggs into a large bowl and tip in 265g sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy, this takes about 7 or 8 minutes, so don't lose heart. You'll know it's ready when the mixture becomes really pale. Pour your egg and sugar mix back into a large bowl.
- Now pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggs and sugar mix, and then gently fold together with a rubber spatula middle, making a figure of eight, moving the bowl round after each folding so you can get at it from all sides, until the two mixtures are one and the color is a dark brown. The idea is, be as gentle and slow - you don't want to undo all the work you did in step 4.
- Hold the sieve over the bowl of eggy chocolate mixture and resift the cocoa and flour mixture, shaking the sieve from side to side, to cover the top evenly. Gently fold in the powder using the figure of eight action as before, it will end up looking gungy and fudgy. Once finished place your mix in your tin and spread evenly through the tin so it is even in corners, then evenly sprinkle your two chocolates and chocolate chips over the mixture.
- Place the tin into the oven and set your timer for 25 minutes. When the buzzer goes, open the oven, pull the shelf out a bit and gently shake the tin. If the brownie wobbles in the middle, it's not quite done, so slide it back in and bake for another 5 minutes. After take out the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes then get two cooling racks and turn the brownie upside down and remove the tin and the grease proof paper and cut into good brownie sizes. Then place into an airtight tub and munch away!
- It's useful for you because you can keep the brownies in an airtight tub then the brownies should last for a good 2 weeks but you can also freeze the brownies and they should last for upto a month.
