Chocolate Bar Brownies

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)

Method:

  • 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!
