A very indulgent little treat for Mother’s Day! Chocolate Brownies with White Lindor Chocolates, heaven on a plate!
Everyone loves brownies and they are pretty easy to make, so here is our idea of how to make a chocolate brownie even more special by adding a few delicious white chocolate Lindt Lindor.
- 250g unsalted butter, cubed
- 100g dark chocolate broken into pieces
- 100g milk chocolate broken into pieces
- 70g plain flour
- 4 large eggs
- 300g caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 50g cocoa powder
- 4 Lindt Lindor white chocolates (you can add more if you like, but they are quite expensive, £3-£4 per box, so I only used a few, you can of course also substitute with other chocolates or truffles.)
The quantities in this recipe will make a full tray of brownies, so I just added the extra Lindor chocolates to one end, just to make a few special ones for mum and the rest I left plain. Although you could add some extra goodies such as nuts, dried fruit, other chocolate etc.
You will also need a cake tray tray or shallow casserole dish pre-greased or lined with baking parchment or tin foil ready to pour the mixture into.
Pre-heat the oven to 180C (160C for a fan oven).
Add the broken pieces of dark and milk chocolate along with the butter to a heat proof bowl or Pyrex dish.
In a saucepan, bring some water to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Hold the bowl/jug of chocolate and butter just over the simmering water and stir the chocolate and the butter until melted.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the flour, caster sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder.
To this bowl add the melted chocolate and butter, mix it altogether and then add the eggs. Stir the mixture again until all the ingredient s are well mixed.
Pour the mixture into a pre-lined/greased baking tray.
And add the chocolates.
Place the tray of brownie mix in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, if after 25 minutes the brownie still looks a little wobbly in the middle return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. You don’t want to over cook it so it stays nice and moist but it can’t be raw in the middle.
Once it no longer wobbles (!) but still soft when you press it, remove from the oven and set aside to cool completely. It will continue to firm up so don’t cut it until completely cool as it might start to break into bits.
Once cooled, cut into squares and server to mum with a nice cup of tea, and maybe an extra choccie on the side! *wink* *wink* *hint* *hint*- if you’re reading this son!
Happy Mother’s Day
