These brownies are amazing. Seriously rich and fudgy, they can be made with any chocolate bar you like, changing to suit tastes. I prefer to make them with Fry’s turkish delight bars – the flavour works so well with the slightly bittersweet dark chocolate and coffee – but I’ve made these with peppermint crisp bars before, and that works well too.
If you don’t like the bittersweet dark chocolate taste, then you could absolutely make these with milk chocolate instead, but I’d still recommend including the coffee.
1/3 cup strong black coffee
250g dark chocolate – roughly chopped
180g butter, chopped
1 ½ cups plain flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1 ½ cups brown sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
4-5 chocolate bars, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 20cm base cake tin or deep slice tray.
Place coffee, chocolate, and butter in saucepan and melt. Stir while it’s melting to make sure it doesn’t catch and burn. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
While that is cooling, roughly chop up the chocolate bars.In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, and sugar together. Make a well in the centre, add eggs and chocolate mixture. When combined, add chopped chocolate bars and mix again. Pour into tin/dish, bake for 45-50 minutes, use a skewer to check when it’s done. Leave to cool in the dish (preferably in the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours) before cutting into squares.
It’s rich, so you can usually cut the pieces fairly small. Even better is warming it up and pouring some cream over the top!!
