Brownies are everyones guilty little pleasure! This valentine’s day finally gave me an excuse to bake these calorific treats! As a cute little activity I thought it might be fun to bake them together with my boyfriend and I have to say I enjoyed the lack of mixing and stirring on my behalf!
You’ll need (makes 8-12)
· 400g of white chocolate
· 85g butter
· 1 pack of white chocolate chips
· 1 pack of milk chocolate chips
· 1 pack of dark chocolate chips
· 3 eggs
· 1 ½ cups of flour
· 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
· 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 190*C. Make a bain marie using a saucepan filled with boiling water and a heat proof bowl over the top. Add the butter and break apart the white chocolate bars into small chunks before melting it all together and stirring until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla essence before adding the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Stir well and sift the flower into the bowl, stirring well. Leave to cool for a few minutes and line a baking tray with some baking/greaseproof paper. Once the mixture is cool, fold in the chocolate chips so they are spread out evenly but do not over mix! Simply pour in all the batter into the baking tray and bake for 25 minutes! Leave to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into chunks and serve with some vanilla ice cream!
Tip: If you want to substitute the white chocolate base for regular chocolate, use plain chocolate but change the quantity of the sugar to a full cup to sweeten it up!
