White Chocolate Chunk Brownies

These are possibly the best brownies you will ever eat, and trust me -I don't say that lightly!

I make cupcakes and other sorts of cake a lot, and while they're always lovely to have with a cup of tea or over a catch up with family...brownies are different! Brownies are the naughty, nothing but chocolate treats you have on those rainy days, in your non-matching pyjamas with your messy top knot. Of course yes, you could make a batch for family visits but they taste so much better in pj's on a sofa.

Paul came up with this recipe five or six years ago and it's been the only one we've used since so I had to steal it to share with you (but it's ok -he said I could). It's everything I want in a brownie, it's dense and slightly chewy, it contains huge chunks of white chocolate and its so simple to make with no complicated steps. I made a batch a couple of weekends back when the weather was a little grey and miserable and the day basically screamed for some home baking, I'm pretty sure we will be making them much more as we get into the colder months.

As you can see from the picture (above) the recipe's been well loved, almost to the point that I'm now scared to touch it for fear of it falling apart!

So...let me introduce you to the recipe for the best brownies you will ever eat!

Ingredients:
170g caster sugar
75g butter (room temperature)
2 tablespoons of water
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
85g plain flour
180g dark chocolate
160g of white chocolate

Pre-heat your oven to 170 celsius (340 fahrenheit) and grease and line an 8 inch square baking tray.

Take your dark chocolate and chop it up, it doesn't have to be too fine -it's just to help it melt when we add it to our mixture. My absolute favourite chocolate to use for these brownies is the Asda own brand 200g bars which are quite thick, if your using something like Green and Blacks or Lindt which are thinner you can just snap your chocolate into little bits.

Then take your white chocolate and chop or snap it up so you have nice big chunks and set aside until later.

Add your caster sugar, water and butter to a pan and bring to a rolling boil on a medium heat while stirring constantly. Then remove the pan from the heat and stir in your dark chocolate until its completely melted and smooth.

Let it cool slightly for 2-3 minutes before adding your eggs. Add them in one at a time and stir quickly after each one is added until fully combined with your chocolate mixture.

Add in your flour and salt -no need to sift, and stir it all together. Then pour in your white chocolate chunks and mix through, but be quick so they don't melt too much -we want to keep them as big as possible.

Spread the mix out evenly in your tray and then bake for 25 minutes. After that you just have to leave them too cool, and that's you done!

However...if you would like hot melted chocolate brownies with a big scoop of ice-cream or double cream then straight from the oven is perfect!

This is such a quick easy recipe and I guarantee once you've made them once you'll make them again and again -plus if you don't like white chocolate feel free to swap it for anything you like.

They would keep for 4/5 days in a sealed tub although they never last that long in this house, they also freeze incredibly well! I sometimes even prefer them after they've been frozen, they become even more chewy and dense than they were before.
