The brownies are deliciously sweet and chewy, making them a perfect snack or even a fantastic dessert.
- 150 grams of melted unsalted butter
- 150 grams of brown sugar
- 65 grams of cocoa powder
- Pinch of salt
- 75 grams of flour
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract,
- 1 egg
- 100 grams of chopped milk duds
Preheat your oven to 165ºc and prepare a twenty centimetre square dish by lightly greasing it.
Mix the sugar, egg, vanilla extract, salt and melted butter in a large bowl until well combined. Fold in the cocoa powder, flour and chopped milk duds. Pour the batter into the dish and bake for approximately fifteen minutes. If you like your brownies to be deliciously fudgy fifteen minutes will suffice, but if you want wonderfully chewy brownies you may want to give them a little longer in the oven.
If you want pretty perfect squares, you will need your brownies to go completely cool before you cut them. Otherwise, dig in when they are messily hot and delicious.
While these brownies are deliciously yummy, if you are making them for a special occasion you may want to add a little decoration. Once you cut your brownies into perfect squares, you can drizzle with a little melted chocolate. White chocolate makes a perfect contrast to the rich brown colour, but you can decorate according to your preferences. You could also scatter Milk Duds across the melted chocolate for an even yummier finish.
Your brownies are delicious with a cup of coffee or even a cool glass of milk. However, they can also be used in several delicious ways. If you want to make an extravagantly rich dessert, serve your brownies with a good quality vanilla ice cream and drizzled with a toffee sauce. This can be made with 100 grams of sugar, 100 grams of butter, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and 100 millilitres of double cream. All you need to do is melt the butter and sugar together, heating until it becomes a golden brown colour. Remove the pan from the heat and gently stir in the vanilla and cream until the mixture is rich and thick. This is especially delicious when the brownies and sauce are still warm, mixing with the wonderfully cold ice cream.
You can even use the brownies as a base for a decadent sundae. Layer your sundae glasses with pieces of brownie, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, topping with toffee sauce. Sprinkle the top with whipped cream and more Milk Duds.
