These are to DIE for…

Makes about 24

 

INGREDIENTS

100g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing

150g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)

175g caster sugar

75g light muscovado sugar

1 tbsp golden syrup

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

100g plain flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

? tsp baking powder

METHOD

Preheat oven to 180?C/gas mark 4. Butter a shallow 20cmx28cm brownie tin and line with greaseproof paper.

Put butter, chocolate, both sugars and syrup into a saucepan and heat gently until blended. Set aside to cool.

Put eggs and vanilla into a bowl and beat together until frothy. Gently whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture.

Sift flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into the chocolate mixture and fold together very gently until well combined.

Pour batter into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, until it looks browned and starts to come away from the sides of the tin. Allow to cool, then turn out and cut into small squares.
