Chocolate Brownies are loved by every generation from grandparents through to grandchildren. Ideal for snacks, lunches, picnics and as a treat.

I use dark chocolate in this recipe as it gives a richer flavour but milk chocolate can also be used. This is one of the recipes, every parent should have in the larder. I have used this as a treat right up to a dessert with homemade custard.

However, please note that these will not last for long so be prepared to cook more and more.

Chocolate Brownies

A simple recipe that will my grandchildren help me bake. They then eat them all and ask for more. A vicious but superb circle.

  • As with most recipes, you need to get the oven up to temp. Set it at 170C (fan) or Gas Mark 5.
  • In a large pan, slowly melt the butter and the sugar together.
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Break the chocolate into smaller pieces and add to the pan.
  • Stir until melted.
  • Beat in the eggs, then stir in the rest of the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • Use greaseproof paper/ baking paper to line a 8x12in baking tin.
  • Pour the combined mixture into the baking tin, levelling it out.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30–40 minutes or until the brownie surface is firm to the touch but the soft underneath.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin.
  • Cut into squares when cool.
  • Enjoy
