Milk Chocolate Brownies
I don’t know how you like your brownies but i like mine gooey, slightly chewy and crammed full of chocolate. The chunks need to be soft and melty, fingers need to be licked clean if it’s a good brownie. Now I’m not claiming I make the best brownies . . . cause I’ve tried the best and they were mind-blowingly AMAZING! . . . but these are fairly decent and tick all the boxes for an everyday brownie. Although if you eat these everyday you may run the risk of diabetes, obesity, some other diet related disease so make these to share, keep them for the weekend or an ocassional treat.

@DeborahNugent you’ll know that I ran out/forgot a few ingredients but I kinda like making them wrong and will do so in future more often.
250g White Sugar
150g Plain Flour
70g Cocoa Powder
Large pinch of salt (This Is NOT Optional)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
150-200g of your favourite chocolate bar! e.g. Yorkie (2 bars), Milka ’cause they’re on special offer and come with tasty flavours like i used Mika with Daim, Cadburies ect Your limit if your imagination and your wallet
1. Preheat the oven to 190C and grease and line a 20cm square tin, with deep sides. In a pan melt your butter untill it is all melty and then tip in your sugar, stir it up a bit. Move off the heat.
2. Add flour, salt and cocoa powder then stir, will get a bit dry here so don’t fret. Next you add your eggs and vanilla, beat this till it’s glossy.
3. Break up your chocolate and add most of it to your batter. Stir it up. Pour into your tin and then dot the remaining chocolate over the mix so you have even chocolate coverage. Bake for 20-25 min.
4. If it’s firm-ish to the touch then it’s ready. Take it out and leave to cool in tin on a rack, slice into 1/4s then 1/16s.
