Its always a good time to make brownies, right?
I love making a batch of brownies as they not only fill the house with the scent of baked/freshly baked brownies and then, you have the actual end product which is a delicious brownie which on this occasion have mars bars included.
If you’re a fan of chocolate and love a dense, rich and decadent brownie – this recipe is for you, it may even become your new favourite!
Anyway, lets get started, shall we?
200g dark chocolate.
100g plain flour.
50g cocoa powder.
300g granulated sugar.
200g chocolate chips.
80g Mars bar chocolate spread.
Mars bars (as many or as few as you’d like).
Before you get into the recipe, you’ll want to do some prep work first. Start by preheating your oven to 180˚c/350˚f, place a saucepan with a small amount of water onto the hob over a medium heat, weigh up your ingredients, line a 8 inch square tin with parchment paper and get any other equipment you may need, such as a stand mixer and a silicon spatula.
To start, take a heatproof bowl and place in the butter and chocolate. Place the bowl into the microwave and allow to melt in 30 second intervals. Once you can see it melting, you will then want to stir the mixture until it’s smooth and no traces of a single ingredient can be seen. Once you’ve achieved this, set aside, allowing it to cool down bit before you use it.
Now you can go ahead and take a medium sized bowl and sift in (if needed) the plain flour and cocoa powder. Alternatively, you can take a whisk and just combine them. Either way, set aside until needed later on.
Into a large mixing bowl (I opted to my stand mixer and mixing bowl), place the eggs and sugar. Whisk them together until they are lighter in colour and consistency- it should be a pale yellow-ish colour and is smooth in texture.
Turn the speed to a medium and gently pour in the melted chocolate butter mixture, then once it’s incorporated, mix for a short while afterwards, just until it’s fully incorporated.
Next you can add in the dry mix and chocolate chips, then fold it in using a metal spoon, just until the dry ingredients and chocolate chips have been incorporated. Try your best not to over-mix at this stage.
Add the brownie batter into your lined cake tin and level it out. Then you can take the mars bar chocolate spread and place dollops all over the top of the brownie batter then use a butter knife to spread and swirl this throughout the brownie batter.
Now you can place this in the oven to bake. Bake for 25-30 minutes or a tester comes out with a few crumbs on.
Once they have baked, straight from the oven, place mars bars on top of them in whichever formation you’d like – I went with 8 as I wanted to get 8 portions from this tray but you can do more or less – its up to you!
Then cool in the tin until they are fully cooled. To make the texture and flavour even better, place in the fridge for as long as possible – this is probably the best recommendation I have when making good brownies even better.
