Recipe for Thorntons toffee fudge chocolate brownie

I was recently sent a bundle of delicious Thorntons chocolates to play with and create some tempting recipes. Being a massive chocolate lover this was no easy task.... so many recipes, which ones to choose??
I'm big into my brownies at the moment so my first thought was a brownie recipe and what better than combining both the toffee and fudge chocolates for this...

The toffee is a Mexican milk chocolate with chewy pieces of special toffee which I thought would be perfect melted in to the brownie. While the fudge is a creamy Papua New Guinea milk chocolate with soft fudge pieces.


Recipe

90g each of Thorntons toffee and Thorntons fudge chocolate blocks
175g unsalted butter
325g caster sugar
130g plain flour
3 eggs
icing sugar, to decorate


a 33 x 23 x 5cm baking tray, lined with greaseproof paper

Makes about 12 portions

1. Preheat the oven to 170C / 325F / GM3

2. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (do not let the base of the bowl touch the water). Leave until melted and smooth. Or heat in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring at each interval until just melted.

3. Remove from the heat. Add the sugar and stir until well incorporated. Add the flour and stir until well incorporated. Finally, stir in the eggs and mix until thick and smooth.

4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until flaky on the top but still soft in the centre. Be careful not to overcook otherwise the edges will become hard and crunchy. Leave to cool completely before dusting with icing sugar, to decorate. 

I like my brownies with a gooey centre so generally cook for just 25 minutes but if you prefer them a little more firm then check at 30.

Enjoy!

Happy baking x
