Okay so I've been a bit AWOL since declaring my first Brownie Mission but I am back with a goodie! Saw this one on a Foodbuzz Top 9 and just had to try it - particularly because they were declared to be "the best brownies in the world". Not quite akin to my Betty Crocker goal (as per my Brownie Mission statement) but really quite close.
Here is my Thermotalk version:
150g milk chocolate easter egg (or choc chips)
120g dark chocolate
200g unsalted butter
1tsp vanilla extract
150g raw sugar
75g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
100g walnut pieces (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 170C. Line a 20cm x 30cm cake tin with baking paper.
2. If using leftover easter eggs, chop milk chocolate on speed 7 for 3 to 5 seconds until it resembles choc chips. Set aside.
3. Place dark chocolate in TM bowl and grate for 5 seconds on speed 8.
4. Add butter. Melt for 3 minutes at 50C on speed 3-4.
5. Add eggs, vanilla and raw sugar and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4.
6. Add flour, salt, choc chips and walnuts (if using) and mix for 20 seconds on reverse speed 3.
7. Pour into cake tin and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
8. Can be left to become completely cool in the tin and dust with icing sugar, or remove and eat warm with icecream or double cream if you can't wait!
Variations: For a darker richer brownie use dark choc chips instead of milk choc chips. For a thicker brownie, use a 20cm x 20cm cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes.
