These chocolate brownies have a rich, chocolate flavour, and are always the first to disappear from plates at parties! This is one of our favourite recipes to make, because we love breaking up and melting the chocolate! These chocolate brownies are also perfect for Valentines day, you could make them for your Mummy and Daddy!
We make this in a medium sized dish of about 23cm x 15cm (9 x 6). Mummy also has a huge tray bake tin (13 x 10) that she sometimes uses when she needs lots of brownies, same recipe that’s below, just double all the ingredients and bake for about 60 minutes or so.
This recipe as well as the picture was taken from Mummy’s website, here’s the link for it Chocolate Brownies. Click on it if you want to go check out her other recipes too. Or better still, show them to your mum!

How to get the sort of brownies you like:
Cocoa powder in chocolate brownies will give you a chewy texture while chocolate gives you a dense, and almost fudgy feel. So what you use and get really does depend on how you like your brownies!
Feel free to add a handful of coarsely chopped nuts in there if you like. One of our favourite things to do is to add chopped white chocolate in the mix. The white chocolate caramelises, almost burns as it cooks and gives a lovely new dimension to the final flavour.
