Double Chocolate Brownies

Before you say anything, I know its not the healthiest, but how yummy do they look and to let you in on a little secret, they taste even better. So everyone deserves a treat in a while so me and my boyfriend decided to make some brownies, we normally go for cookies when we bake, but thought we would be adventurous. So as I know you will probably be drooling now, I will leave the recipe below for you lovely people.

You will need: 250g unsalted butter, 200g chocolate (dark or milk), Milkybar (The big one), 360g sugar, 80g cocoa powder, 65g plain flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, splash of vanilla extract, 3 large eggs, splash of milk if the mixture is too dry.

Recipe: Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, line your baking tin with greaseproof paper or grease with butter.

In a bowl over simmering water, melt the chocolate then add the vanilla extract and eggs then beat them till you have a silky consistency. In a separate bowl mix your flour, sugar, baking power and cocoa powder, mix these together well. Put the mixtures together and fold in until you are able to stir into a mixture. Add in your chunks from your milkybar, leave a few for the end.

Put the mixture into the tray and leave in the oven for 20-25 minutes. After 15-20 minutes check on the brownies, chop up the remaining milkybar chunks and sprinkle over the top of the brownies, then pop back in for a few minutes to just melt. When checking the brownies to see if they are done, you do want the skewer/knife to come out with mixture on them so they are gooey in the middle. You just want to check they are a bit springy and cooked on top,

Let them cool down, add a bit of ice cream or some tea and enjoy!

Let me know if you make them and tag me on twitter so I can see! @drainedbeauty
