Hey there everyone! With Easter over, you may have a lot of chocolate lying around the house. My Triple Chocolate Brownie recipe tastes delicious and is perfect for using up excess Easter Eggs.
What you’ll need:
350g dark cane sugar
(Tip: Cane sugar adds flavour, without making brownies too sweet)
175g melted butter (15 seconds in the microwave is all you need)
75g good quality cocoa
3 medium sized free range eggs, whisked with a fork
100g self-raising flour
2 table spoons vanilla essence
150g good quality white chocolate, cut into small pieces
150g good quality dark chocolate, cut into small pieces
(Tip: My favourite baking chocolate is Green & Black’s Cooks’ Bars (£2.50 for 150g, Tesco). The delicious chunks of chocolate add flavour and texture to this recipie- what’s not to love?!)
Let’s get baking!
1.Preset the oven to 180°C.
2. Add the ingredients to a large mixing bowl in the given order, mixing well after each one is added.
3. Grease a baking tin with butter and add the mixture. Bake on a medium shelf for 20 minutes, until the brownies are crisp on the outside and delightfully fudgy on the inside.
4. Leave the brownies to cool and after cutting out individual brownie pieces, store them in an airtight container.
Using this base, you can get more creative with your flavour choices. Here are some of my favourite combinations.
1. Peanut butter brownies: Add 2 table spoons of peanut butter after the chocolate pieces and enjoy the nutty, chocolatey goodness.
2. Salted caramel brownies: Spoon salted caramel into the mixture after adding the chocolate and stir slightly to separate. This is a fab recipe, from one of my favourite food bloggers: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/homemade-salted-caramel-recipe/.
3. Creme egg brownies: This recipe is perfect for using up your left over creme eggs! Cut 6 Creme Eggs in half. After baking your brownies for 15 minutes, add the creme eggs to the brownie mixture and bake for a further 10 minutes.
I hope that this recipe inspired you to get creative in the kitchen and I’d love to hear about your favourite recipes!
