Best Ever Chocolate Brownie Recipe

by - July 02, 2016

If you've been eating with your eyes when scrolling my recent Instagram posts eye no more as I reveal the recipe to the the best ever chocolate brownies. The consistency is just the right kind of fudgy, squishy yummy scrummy. This recipe is very reminiscent of the brownie-cookies I made last time. So if you enjoyed those you'll most certainly love this one.

Ingredients (serves 15)

250g butter
300g golden caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs (or 4 medium eggs)
200g self-raising flour
50g cocoa powder
100g chocolate drops (or white chocolate drops)

For cream topping
100g double cream
2 tbsp icing sugar (confectioners sugar)


For icing topping
Icing sugar (confectioners sugar) to sprinkle on top


1 Butter and line a traybake or small roasting tin and pre-heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4

2 Melt the butter on high heat for 40 seconds in the microwave and cool for 5 minutes

3 In a mixing bowl beat the sugar, then vanilla extract and eggs using a whisk until smooth

4 In a separate bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder and ¼ tsp salt (if your butter was salted skip the salt

5 Stir in the milk chocolate drops and bake for 35 mins until risen all over and a skewer comes out with a few damp crumbs

Method for topping

1 For the topping you can choose to either sprinkle icing sugar or whisk double cream on full speed for 4-5 minutes until frothy

2 Whisk in the icing sugar a tablespoon at a time at low speed

4 Whisk again at high speed for 3-4 minutes until stiff and no longer at dropping consistency

5 Layer on cold brownies with an icing spatula and sprinkle on the chocolate drops

Happy baking! Let me know how you got on and if you need help tweet me or comment below.
