So my resolution to cook more things without chocolate was short lived. Inspired by this thread I thought that the best way to celebrate the end of my (brief) Chocolate Drought was with dense, fudgey brownies. Yummo! I hear you say, and right you are. The title is no overstatement, these babies are BRILLIANT! Just the thing for a chilly Winter’s day.
Be warned, there is a lot of butter in this recipe. But if my scale says ‘0’ then… it cant be that much can it?
True to form, I doubled slightly upped the chocolate dose
Then licked the bowl. Did you expect any less?
I added 5 mins to the cooking time because I used a smaller tin so I was very worried when I took my brownies out and they were quite firm. The last few batches of brownies I had cooked were too dry and I thought I had overcooked these too
Then the top sank and I knew I was in the clear!
Now I felt a bit like Nigella when I was eating these. They were so gooey and fudgey that I wanted to roll around on the floor in ecstacy. I always thought her moaning was a little over the top, but if she enjoys eating all her food as much as I enjoyed eating these, I absolutely understand!
The recipe I used was Jamie Oliver’s Bloomin’ Brilliant Brownies found HERE
I did change the nuts and cherries for milk and white chocolate chips and used a 20cm tin because I was lacking a larger tin but they were the only changes I made.
So, my lovelies, what is your favourite chocolate recipe?
