Brownies are like a secret cure for PMT (sorry fellas).
Sometimes we need a hug, sometimes we need brownies. Most times, we need both.
Last night, I decided these brownie cookies were very necessary.
I had already come to terms with the fact that I was going to eat them straight out of the oven. Don’t judge.
Ingredients (Makes around 10 or 11 large brownie cookies)
8 ounces of dark chocolate
1 packet (around 125g) of white chocolate
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup of flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 cup sugar
Preheat your oven to around 180 degrees, grease and line a large baking tray.
In a large pan bring about 2 inches of water to the boil.
Smash up all the dark chocolate, it’s easiest if you leave it in the packet and just give it a good old bash against your kitchen worktop.
Put all the chocolate pieces in a small saucepan and lower into the boiling water. The smaller the pieces are, the quicker they will melt.
Stir the chocolate until it starts to melt, then add the butter. Stir until it has all melted and then set aside to cool.
Next, sieve the flour into a large bowl. Wisk in the salt and Baking powder.
Return to your chocolate mixture; add the sugar, vanilla essence and the eggs, one by one.
Stir thoroughly until combined.
Add the chocolate mixture to the flour mixture and stir until all the flour has been combined.
Smash up the white chocolate into chunks and fold in the chocolate pieces into the mixture.
Bake for 11 minutes if you want them slightly undercooked and sloppy, or 16 Minutes if you’re not a fan of the sloppy-ness.
