Let's Bake: Leftover Christmas Chocolate Fudge Brownies

06/01/2019

Christmas may be over, but the excessive quantities of chocolate that remains are not. Rather than consign them to the back of the cupboard, why not turn your chocolatey treats into delicious cakes and bakes instead?

For my first bake of 2019, I decided to make Leftover Christmas Chocolate Fudge Brownies using a load of random chocolates that I had left over such as Lindt Lindor, Malteaser Truffles, Terry Chocolate Orange pieces and more.

——————
Ingredients
——————

- 24 Leftover Chocolate Pieces
- 200g Melted Chocolate (Dark/Milk)

- 100g Softened Unsalted Butter
- 250g Caster Sugar
- 4 Large Eggs
- 95g Plain Flour
- 25g Dark Cocoa Powder
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

What To Do
——————

1. To begin with grease and line a baking tin (or a brownie tin if you have one) and preheat your oven to 180°C or 160°C if you're using a fan-assisted oven.

2. Break up your chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl and melt gently. Once melted, remove the bowl from the heat and leave to cool until needed.

3. Into the bowl of a food mixer place your sugar and butter and beat on a medium speed until fluffy in texture.

4. On a slow speed add your vanilla essence and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

5. Stir in the cooled melted chocolate and add the sifted flour and cocoa until combined.

7. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly. Placing each piece of leftover chocolate evenly into the mixture.

8. Bake for about 22-25 minutes until firm to the touch but still a bit fudgy – the chocolate will continue to cook slightly for a few minutes after coming out of the oven.

9. Remove the tin from the oven and set on a wire cooling rack. Leave to cool completely before cutting into pieces and enjoy!
