Triple Chocolate Chunk Brownies

October 05, 2016



I now drink my coffee out of an insulated travel mug. I'm not going anywhere, but if I don't put it in my travel mug (which incidentally is a very pretty shade of rose gold, though completely impractical as I managed to choose the only one that doesn't fit under the Keurig... form > function) there's not a chance I'll be drinking it before it becomes ice coffee.


Breakfast is an on the go affair during the week, my pink coffee mug in one hand, and usually something chocolatey and packed with sufficient sugar to really wake me up!

These brownies are stuffed with chocolate and enough calories to make me forget I only had three hours sleep:


Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup/200g white sugar
  • 1 cup/220g soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup/110g butter (melted)
  • 1 1/4 /160g cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup/60g flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/5oz/100g bar of white chocolate
  • 3 1/5oz/100g bar of milk chocolate
  • 3 1/5oz/100g bar of dark chocolate

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Whip together the wet ingredients for the brownie batter in a jug or bowl, and add together the dry ingredients in another- do not include the chocolate bars at this stage.

Beat together the wet and dry brownie batter ingredients until smooth and combined.


The reason I like to use bars of chocolate rather than chocolate chips is that I prefer a proper chunk of chocolate in my brownie, not some naff little chips.

Chop the chocolate into thick shards, pour two thirds of them into the brownie batter and fold in.


Grease a baking tin or dish ( I use an 8 in x 12 in dish that is 2 in deep), I like to use coconut oil spray, and pour the batter in the batter.

Spread the remaining chocolate shards over the batter, and place the dish into the oven for 30-35 minutes.


To make sure your brownies are cooked but still fudgey, check them at 30 minutes by inserting a knife or skewer into the brownie about two inches from the edge, it'll come out clean if the brownie is done. A skewer in the center of the brownie will look 'wet' still- don't worry, it'll set as the brownie cools.

Let the brownie completely cool before slicing it in to portions- I think 8 or 12 is idea;... its totally depends on how many hours sleep you got last night, anything below two hours? Consider 6 portions.
