With a snuffly and sickly boyfriend on the sofa I decided to make brownies to try and cheer us up (and also to keep my distance from the sofa, I definitely do not want man flu!!!!)
This recipe is quick and easy, and you can pretty much throw in anything extra that tickles your fancy. I went for walnut & white choc chips.
125g unsalted butter
180g caster sugar
100g dark chocolate
40g cocoa powder
35g self raising flour
50-60g of whatever you fancy, i chose a mix of white choc chips and walnuts
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Melt butter and chocolate and set aside to cool. Mix sugar, cocoa and flour. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in any extra ingredients (walnuts and choc chips) followed by the melted butter and chocolate. Line a shallow baking tray with baking paper, pour on mixture so there is even coverage across the tray and pop in the oven for 20mins. Et voila, Tuesday night treats.
Enjoy chocolate lovers!
