What makes the best brownies ? The chocolate . And I am glad I found this kind of dark chocolate for baking my brownies. It’s a local product and their chocolate is good.
I have read many about this kind of brownies but had not tried it till few days ago. I adapted the recipe for fudge brownies from http://www.taste.com.au and played a little bit with it to match my taste like I reduce the sugar amount and the time of baking ( the time of baking depends on the oven you have ).
Here is the recipe :
200 gram dark cooking chocolate, melted
200 gram unsalted butter, melted with the chocolate
2 egg yolks
5 tablespoons of sugar
115 gram all-purpose flour
35 gram cacao powder
4 packs of 42 gram Kit Kat
2 packs of size-bite Snicker ( I used Knockers from Delfi )
Put the Kit Kat and Snicker in the freezer prior using it for a day or a couple of hours
Note : I used Kit Kat and Knockers as I run out of Kit Kat . To cover the whole surface , I slide the Knockers in between .
Preheat oven to 190C. Brush a 16x 26 cm pan with melted butter ( I used 16×16 cm ) . Line with non stick baking paper. Leave some of the baking paper hanging on each side of the pan to make it easier take out the brownies .
Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water.
Whisk the sugar , the eggs and egg yolks in a bowl till well combined. Allow the chocolate mixture to cool slightly before adding it to the egg batter.
In another bowl, combine the cacao and flour then add into the chocolate mixture. Stir well. Pour into the prepare pan for about one cm.
Bake for 3 to 5 minutes just to let the batter harden a bit. Take out and arrange the Kit Kat and Snickers on top then pour the rest of the batter. Bake it for 25 minutes or you may check if it’s done by inserting a toothpick to come out clean.
Serve warm or you can refrigerate it for the next day . More delicious.
