Luxury Chocolate Brownies
Brownies are my ‘go to’ comfort food and this recipe allows me to take it to the next level of gooey chocolatey goodness!
You will need
400g fairtrade caster sugar
75g fairtrade cocoa
225g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 eggs (lightly beaten)
75g walnuts (chopped roughly)
sweeties of your choice, the brighter the better!
Equipment you will need
Preheat the oven to 180 or gas mark 4
Soften the butter and the sugar together to form a smooth paste
Sieve the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt into the softened butter and sugar.
Combine now with the eggs and vanilla
Add the chopped walnuts to the mix and pour into the two silicone containers.
I personally love brownies with the sweets added before going into the oven and they ‘cook’ alongside the brownies. So if you are including white chocolate buttons, M&M’s they are perfect as the baking takes them to the next level. Be aware if you are using midget gems that these are not vegetarian and it may mean that you have brownies which come out of the oven hotter than the surface of the sun!
Leave in the oven for around 40 minutes or until the brownies have started to come away for the side and when you insert a knife into the centre it comes out moist but not wet. Do not be tempted to open the oven door as you may not lose height but you will lose moisture, which creates that gooey texture we all love so much!
