Dark Chocolate Brownies.

Hevz's Chocolate Brownies again. Sorry. But I did make these ten months ago and blogged them then. Yes, I have made them lots of times in between then and now, but these are the very best. I used dark chocolate and white chocolate chips, then dusted with a cocoa/icing sugar mix.
For those of you that would like the recipe (there can't be too many people out in blog land that haven't made these. LOL) Here it is again.

100g/4oz Butter.
50g/2oz Cocoa Powder (I use Green and Blacks)
2 Eggs.
225g/8oz Caster Sugar.
1 tsp Vanilla Extract.
50g/2oz self-raising Flour.
50g/2oz white chocolate chips (I usually use choc chunks, they're bigger)

1-Preheat oven to 180c/350f/gas 4
2-Take a shallow baking tin, approx 23cm/9inch square, and line the bottom with non-stick liner or baking parchment (very important you do this).
3-Melt the butter, then add the cocoa powder, stirring well to remove any lumps (I use my mini whisk)
4-Beat the eggs in a large bowl, add the sugar and mix until smooth.
5-Stir in the cocoa mixture, white choc chunks and the vanilla extract and mix well.
6-Add the flour and mix gently with a spoon, be careful not to over mix.
7-Pour mixture into the lined baking tin and place in the middle of the oven for about 25 mins.
When done the brownies should be crisp on top and soft in the middle. Leave to cool for 10 mins in the tin before turning out onto a board and then cutting into squares.

This time I doubled the recipe, used 100gs Dark Chocolate 86% chopped and the white chocolate. Instead of the caster sugar, I used dark soft brown sugar. And dusted with the cocoa/icing sugar mix.
So why have I blogged them again? Well, I just love using my light box, learning new things with it all the time. See my labels to find out more about it.
