I found 3 double deckers that needed a good home, instead of scoffing them, I decided to use them to make some brownies, the results were delicious.
I used 2 of the chocolate bars in the brownies and used remaining one to decorate it.
I cut these brownies into 9 squares with a slice of double decker in the centre of each square.
You will need:
- 135g Dark Chocolate (broken into squares)
- 135g Butter
- 1tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 Eggs
- 225g Caster Sugar
- 135g Plain Flour
- 1/2tsp baking Powder
- 2 Double Decker chocolate bars (I cut them both in half length ways then sliced, so each piece was about 1cm square)
- Plus one Double Decker for decoration (I cut this bar into 9 slices)
- Grease and line a square 20cm tin and preheat the oven to 180degrees
- Melt the chocolate and the butter together over a bain marie (heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water), take care not to overheat the chocolate and butter.
- Once the butter and chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and stir well, put to one side and allow to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved in the eggs and they look think and creamy.
- Gentle fold the chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar making sure it is well incorporated.
- Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold though to ensure there are no lumps of flour.
- Fold in the 2 chopped up double deckers.
- Pour into the prepared tin and level the top.
- Bake for about 30 mins.
- As soon as you remove from the oven arrange the sliced double decker over the top in a way so when you cut the brownie into squares you will have a slice of double decker in the middle of each square of brownie.
- Allow to cool completely in the tin before removing.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!
