Recipe: Mary Berry's Chocolate Chip Brownies (with a twist)!

These brownies are the ultimate treat for those with a sweet tooth. I found this recipe in Mary Berry's Baking Bible, and seeing as I had all the ingredients in the house one weekend, I said I'd give them a go. The twist mentioned in the title is that although the recipe only calls for dark chocolate chips, I rather enjoyed throwing in the white chocolate chips too. Can there ever be such a thing as too much chocolate, after all?!

4 large eggs
375g Caster sugar
275g softened butter
75g cocoa powder
100g self raising flour
100g each of white and dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 C, and line a 12 in x 9 in tray with greaseproof paper.
measure all dry ingredients into your bowl, and mix until combined.

Add in softened butter and eggs, and mix thoroughly until evenly blended. 
If using an electric mixer use a spatula to scrape down the sides to make sure it's evenly mixed before you add the chocolate chips. 

Spoon the mixture into the tray with the greaseproof paper, using your spatula to spread it to the sides, and to level the top of it before it goes into the oven.

Bake for around 40 minutes, until the top of the brownies has become crusted, and a skewer comes out clean from the center. Watch for over browning near the end of the bake, and cover with foil if needed to stop it from catching.

 - they really are that good!}

These have become a Sunday evening treat in our house, I think I've made them five more times since the original photos were taken. They really are an easy way to spoil yourself, just try to see if you can manage to keep them around long enough to do so. We nearly had tears at the house recently when I gave the final three brownies to the plasterer rather than keep them for Shane (who had brought six of them to work!). I might just do him a tray for Valentine's Day coming up, to keep him sweet.

If you try to make them, I hope you like them as much as we do!
