A chocolate at ours lasts five minutes and if I’m not quick enough I’ll get none. Sunday past I decided to make a big batch of chocolate brownies with the hopes of it lasting the week to fulfil our chocolate cravings instead of buying them all the time. I couldn’t have been more WRONG! It’s Tuesday today and I managed to bring the last piece with me to work. Luckily I could share some with friends who came to visit over these 3 days.
The recipe is very easy and I made sure to use good quality chocolate for extra indulgence.
Here goes the recipe:
- 1 cup butter
- 1 slab Lindt chocolate – I used 70% cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips – I used the milk chocolate chips from Woolworths (BEST)
- 1 can Nestle caramel treat
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Grease your baking tin with butter or cooking spray.
Chop the chocolate slab into bits.
Melt the butter in the microwave and add the chocolate bits stirring continuously for it to melt and combine. Set aside to cool slightly.
Stir the sugar and eggs into the chocolate/butter mixture. Mix in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the chocolate chips.
Once the mixture is combined, pour into your greased baking tin and bake for about 30 – 35 mins. Use a toothpick to check if it’s ready, it should come out clean-ish. (I’ll take a pic next time)
Allow it to cool completely and then spread the caramel on top. I added some coarse salt on top of some of the slices for a salted caramel option – yum!
