FUDGEY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

Who doesn't love fudgey, gooey chocolate brownies as a weekend treat? This recipe is gluten free, making it an absolute winner! You could play about with the flavours by using different chocolate bars from our range. The chocolate orange bar works a treat, along with the maple and pecan. For this recipe we've kept it simple and used our classic plain dark chocolate for the batter and our plain milk chocolate for the chunks.

Ingredients

  • 250g unsalted butter (cubed)
  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 4 large eggs
  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste/extract
  • 100g gluten free flour
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 150g milk chocolate (broken up into chunks)
  • Peanut butter/salted caramel - optional

Method

1. Heat your oven to 180C / 160C fan. Prepare the baking tin by greasing it with butter and lining it with parchment paper.

2. Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a double boiler (a heatproof bowl set over a pan of boiling water), stirring occasionally. Once melted, remove from the heat and leave to cool. (Green Tip: Let the water cool and use later to feed your house plants!
3. Whisk the eggs and sugar together until it's the consistency of a thick milkshake. This usually takes between 6-8 minutes.

    4. Add the cooled chocolate and butter to the egg and sugar mix, along with the vanilla. Carefully and gently fold together until you have a lovely thick chocolatey batter. 

    5. Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder. Continue to fold until just combined. Gently mix in your chocolate chunks and sea salt. 

      6. Pour into the baking tray. At this point you could add in some peanut butter and/or salted caramel and swirl through the surface of the brownie batter.
